    This past summer my Uber driver said that he got a message in his app that said Uber Eats was coming to Carteret County and asked if he wanted to opt in but I don’t see that this service ever came?

    Especially with Lyft now being in the area you would think both would try to compete.

    That said, I have found that ridesharing is spotty in the area in the Winter months very late at night and early mornings. I wish there were more drivers out during those times.
