American food delivery app DoorDash has brought its services to its third Canadian location.

Calgarians can now fire up the app and have orders delivered straight to their doors from hundreds of restaurants.

DoorDash delivery drivers — known as ‘Dashers’ — work between 10 a.m. and 11 p.m.

Instead of simply heading out on a delivery, Dashers have to first reserve timeslots using a separate Dasher app.

DoorDash conducts full background checks on all of its delivery drivers, and also offers auto insurance policies.

This marks the second major food delivery service launch in Calgary in the past few weeks.

American ridesharing company Uber launched its UberEATS service in Calgary on May 17, 2017.

DoorDash is available in over 350 cities across Canada and the U.S., including Toronto and Vancouver. DoorDash’s Vancouver services include alcohol delivery.

The DoorDash app is free to download on both Android and iOS.
