Brian Gebhardt, general manager of Uber Montana, helped launch the ride-sharing service in Missoula in August 2016.

UberEats, the ride-sharing service's food delivery option, will go live in Missoula on Monday.

It's the company's first branch into food delivery in Montana, following its initial statewide ride-sharing launch in August 2016.

Starting at 11 a.m., the service will offer full menus from more than 20 restaurants, according to a news release. The list includes the Montana Club, the Notorious P.I.G., and Rumour. The company declined to provide a full list of restaurants, but it will be viewable in the UberEats app.

Any restaurants interested in joining can go to about.ubereats.com/en/restaurants.

Restaurant availability will vary based on location, according to answers relayed from Kiran Vinta, the UberEats general manager.

According to a map the company provided, service will be available in the city core, plus the Lower Rattlesnake, the Northside and Westside out to Hellgate Meadows and Mullan Road. Pattee Canyon, Farviews, the South Hills, Linda Vista and Miller Creek and Blue Mountain didn't appear to eligible based on the map, but for specific delivery locations, check the UberEats app.

Delivery costs $5.99 in addition to the restaurant's menu price. The total will be available during the ordering process and no tips are required. The average delivery time for UberEats worldwide is 35 minutes, which they'll aim for here, according to Vinta.

The company plans on expanding UberEats to other cities in Montana in the future.

Last week, Uber's chief rival Lyft was given approval to begin operating in Montana by the Public Service Commission.
