Uber last week unveiled a $250 million recruiting push aimed at ride-share drivers, which could take driver share from its delivery business.
"“As more people are vaccinated, demand from customers has increased. We're working to bring more drivers and delivery people onto the road, and for anyone interested, now is a great chance to earn money flexibly on your own schedule.” Meghan Casserly, Uber Eats’ Head of Communications
Meanwhile, both DoorDash and Uber Eats are ramping up service to other segments such as grocery, convenience and pharmaceuticals, which could be another factor stretching networks thin.

There are a few little tricks you can implement to earn more money as an Uber Eats driver. And while they often involve hustling a bit harder, they’ll ultimately lead to more cash flow.
Here are some earning tips:
Limit Your Working Area - Working within a small radius can help you earn more money as opposed to trying to cover a large area. It not only helps you to cut down on gas but it also allows you to travel quickly from one job to another.
Don’t Miss a Surge Period - Certain times of the day are busier for Uber Eats than other times of the day. Lunch and dinner time, for example, tend to bring in a lot more orders than breakfast.
Be Extra Courteous - Tips are crucial for Uber Eats delivery drivers.
Double as an UberX Driver - One of the nice things about working for Uber is that they let you switch interchangeably from one service to another. In other words, you can drive for both Uber Eats and UberX at the same time.
