Our favorite car service app is branching out into the courier business. Basically, you will now be able to have a personal Uber slave pick up and deliver shit for you. All deliveries will be made via bike and pedestrian messengers at what we can assume are extremely over-priced rates. Much like with the car service, customers will be able to check the status of their packages via the Uber App, making your “where the fuck is my package!?” panic attacks a thing of the past. On the down side, messengers also can only pick up and deliver items, not purchase them, so don’t count on sending some Uber slave out to fetch your morning iced coffee anytime soon (note to Uber: make this fucking happen).

Never fear betches, this is NYC and you’re never more than 100 feet from a Starbucks near you. Starbucks will, in fact, still operate on the terminal’s west side. Thank goddddd. I mean, it’s bad enough when you have to take public transportation, but not being able to drink iced coffee out of a green straw on top of that!? I’m getting anxiety just thinking about it.
