Can you have a passenger while driving for Uber Eats?

I want to drive for Uber Eats. My friend said she’d drive around with me to help me deliver food, and we could split the money. This sounds like a great idea, but I want to make sure it’s a possibility. Are you allowed to have a passenger while driving for Uber Eats?

You can have a passenger while driving for Uber Eats—and with another person riding along, you may be able to crank up productivity. 
If you have limited mobility or a medical condition that hinders your ability to make deliveries, having a passenger with you may actually be encouraged. 
The only limitation is that your passenger cannot interfere with your work. 
Pro tip: If you decide to go ahead and become an Uber Eats driver, you may want to add
rideshare insurance
to your car insurance policy for better protection.
