Uber Eats delivery operations have went offline across the Gold Coast for the past earlier this week, leaving many residents hungry for more than just a break from the relentless rain. Users logging into the app have been met with a frustrating message: “Uber Eats is Coming Soon.”
The decision to suspend service comes as the Gold Coast reels from days of severe storms that began on Christmas Day. Floodwaters have swamped suburbs, leaving many residents without power and facing treacherous conditions. Restaurants have taken to social media to alert customers that delivery services like Uber Eats, are suspended in the area due to extreme weather.
Mcdonald’s, Woolworth’s Delivery Now and Milk Run were also casualties of the suspension, with their Gold Coast delivery operations on hold for 24-48 hours, both services are now back up and running.
