Uber’s food delivery service is growing out of its Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn roots and moving further into more neighborhoods in Queens.

As of Thursday, Dec. 8, UberEATS will now include food delivery from restaurants in Bayside and Jamaica.

Prior to this expansion, UberEATS had only been available in Manhattan below 135th Street and in northern and western neighborhoods in Brooklyn. In September, the app expanded its territory to cover Astoria, Sunnyside, and Long Island City in Queens.

According to the New York Post, UberEATs now has a total of 1,000 participating restaurants. This new growth is able to enlarge the service territory to include most of the four boroughs (not including Staten Island and Rockaway).

Orders can be taken on the UberEATS website or on the app. There is a delivery fee of $2.99 and customers do not need to tip their food delivery person.
