Toronto Pearson and Uber Eats have announced an expanded offering that now allows travellers and airport workers to order Starbucks and pick it up when it's ready using the Uber Eats app for iOS or Android

There are now more than 20 restaurants across Terminals 1 and 3 that are available for Uber Eats users to skip the line and order for pickup including A&W, Subway, Fionn MacCool's, The Hearth, Twist and Caplansky's Deli. 

Enhanced functionality that will make ordering from restaurants at Toronto Pearson using Uber Eats easier was also announced. 

The Uber Eats app now automatically detects when a user is at Toronto Pearson and brings up a screen that lets them know food is available for pickup at the airport.

Users can then select the area they're in and choose from any of the available restaurants near their location. 

Restaurants are also clearly labeled by section for easy navigation.

"This ground-breaking partnership is proof positive that maintaining a strong focus on health and cultivating a convenient airport experience are not mutually exclusive concepts," said Giovanna Verrilli, director, commercial development at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. "We look forward to continuing to work with Uber Eats to increase choice and convenience for passengers and airport workers as this partnership grows."

Toronto Pearson and Uber Eats first announced their partnership in 2019.
