Will Uber pick up packages?

I want to build an app for picking up and delivering packages, not humans :-) Is that ok with you guys?
Just making sure that it doesn't conflict with your other ecommerce initiatives such as http://blog.uber.com/RUSH

    Vastra- As long as it does not violate the terms and conditions and rules of the hackathon, it should be fine (this is after all a hackathon). Although we do weigh heavily on originality as well so please take that into consideration. Good luck!

    Understood. I just have one follow up question - the 'Request endpoint' WILL work for real, right? Meaning, I am planning to use the Request endpoint to schedule actual package pickups and deliveries (each will be in 100% compliance with your T&Cs and guidelines). The drivers will arrive to pick up the packages, EVEN DURING APRIL AND MAY, correct?

    Vastra- Just to make sure we are on the same page, our drivers cannot just pick up packages or complete deliveries. We do have a services as you mentioned above (Uber Rush) that does describe what you are trying to accomplish, but as far as the API goes we do not. Sorry about that.
