Making on-demand businesses scalable and sustainable with the new UberRUSH API

The next generation of businesses is being built around a simple concept: get your customers what they want, right when they want it. From fresh produce to doctors, it’s all available on demand at the push of a button.

But scaling an on-demand business is challenging. Even if you have a great idea and a talented team, you might be missing the logistical expertise or operational funding needed to grow it to profitability. At Uber we’ve spent years building a logistics platform that works sustainably for both the end user and our driver partners.

Today we’re giving developers access to that same powerful platform with the launch of the UberRUSH API.

We want UberRUSH to improve the way things move from point A to point B, inspiring a new era of businesses along the way. With the UberRUSH API, developers can tap into Uber’s on-demand delivery network to improve an existing business–or dream up a completely new one.
