The Ultimate Guide to Delivering with UberEats by E-Bike in the United States 

In 2020, the number of delivery drivers associated with UberEats in the United States hit 1,000,000.

Another important increase also occurred throughout the year and more drivers using the UberEats platform began to use e-bikes. This offers a number of unique benefits including efficiency and maintenance cost, we will expand more on this throughout the article. 

We'll also show you how you can get started delivering with UberEats using an e-bike.

How to save time on UberEats deliveries with an e-bike

All delivery drivers know the value of saving time. Saving time means being able to make more journeys, and more journeys mean more money. What’s more, in a world where e-commerce is becoming more and more popular, customers expect efficiency.

E-bikes deliver on this efficiency. Not only are they able to dodge the traffic jams that cars often get stuck in, but they are able to easily move through locations across the US. In 2019, legislation stated that e-bikes could travel through any public park and/ or urban parks2.
UberEats cyclists can also find shortcuts through sidewalks, parking lots, alleyways, trails and more. 

With quick parking, people who deliver using UberEats can make easy drop-offs and capitalise on shorter last-mile delivery times.

Urban efficiency of e-bikes

On average, e-bikes allow delivery cyclists using Uber to earn 30% more than car drivers. When cycling, it is easy to ride around a city quickly, regardless of inclines or traffic jams. Alternative routes and shortcuts, including parks and narrow alleyways, also become possible and cut down the overall travel time of a trip.

Cost of servicing cars or e-bikes in the United States 

While the average cost of car servicing in the US is US$600 per year, e-bikes are far cheaper to maintain.  Issues are rare, when bought through providers such as Zoomo. However, all our bikes still come with free ongoing maintenance. Plus, our second hand purchase option makes them even more affordable!

Gas prices increase
