Pittsburgh area residents can now receive home delivery from 44 area McDonald's restaurants via the ride-sharing giant Uber.

The partnership between the restaurant chain and Uber allows customers to order their favorite restaurant menu items via the UberEATS mobile app or UberEATS.com.

"We are excited to offer customers a new level of convenience and personalization," said local owner-operater Darren Roberts.

"This partnership with UberEATS will provide McDonald's customers across the Pittsburgh area even more opportunities to enjoy their favorite menu items," he said

In January, McDonald's and UberEATS piloted the delivery service from more than 200 restaurants in Miami, Orlando and Tampa Bay. The test generated high levels of customer satisfaction and consistent growth as customers experienced the convenience of having McDonald's items delivered to their door, according to company officials.

The service was then expanded to Los Angeles, Chicago, Columbus, Phoenix, Denver and other major cities. By the end of June, the service will be available from more than 3,500 McDonald's restaurants across the country.

"We launched UberEATS in Pittsburgh last month, giving people in the Steel City a new way to get the food they want, when they want it. Today, we're thrilled to partner with McDonald's in Pittsburgh and provide easy access to everyone's McDonald's favorites at the push of a button," said Casey Verkamp, UberEATS general manager in Pennsylvania.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
