Uber vending machines didn’t work, so now your ride is a moving billboard
The convenience of grabbing a pair of earbuds or a late-night bag of chips from within your Uber ride has worn off.
In-car vending machines — as the snack boxes from companies like Cargo and Vendy were called — in your Uber or Lyft have either moved onto the next idea or stalled out. Uber drivers with Cargo boxes filled with snacks, water, and other goods, like phone chargers, recently received an email that the vending machines were done. No more depending on your rideshare for post-bar crawl chocolate bar and condom purchases.
