If you must cancel the trip while the package is in the trunk of your vehicle, please try to return the package to the requester or call Uber support for guidance before cancelling.

If you've accepted a package for delivery and believe it contains a prohibited item and/or have any safety concerns, please contact Uber Support for guidance or contact local authorities.

In other words the more interesting the contents of the package may be, the greater chance it is prohibited.

This service actually appeals to me, over food delivery, which I don't do. Did you have to sign up for the service or did you automatically qualify?

So they're basically resurrecting Uber RUSH under a new name? There has probably been enough turnover at Uber that nobody presently working there even remembers that Uber RUSH existed.

- Should be closed, securely sealed, and ready for transport

I find it interesting that this is almost the exact opposite of Roadie's policy. Roadie's policy is that everything should be packaged in a way that allows the driver to inspect the contents of the package (to verify that there are no prohibited items, make sure that nothing is damaged on pickup, etc.).

This is actually what I signed up for (Uber Rush) when I first started. It wasn’t available in my area so they just signed me up for UE without even asking me.

Has any roadie ever done that? Drivers could be delivering kilos of cocaine without knowing it. Packages are already wrapped tight so no way of determining what is inside.
