FAIRFAX, Va. (CIRCA) — Students at a college campus in Northern Virginia now have the option to have their meals delivered to them by robots.
The deliveries began Tuesday on George Mason University's Fairfax, Virginia, campus.
The company behind the bots, Starship Technologies, says the more than 25 machines make up the world's largest fleet of delivery robots on a university campus.
"Beginning today, Mason’s 40,000 students, faculty and staff can access the Starship Deliveries app (iOS and Android) to order food and drinks to be delivered anywhere on campus, within minutes," Starship stated in a press release Tuesday.
Among the first restaurants taking part in the program are Blaze Pizza, Starbucks, and Dunkin’, according to Starship.
The delivery cost will be $1.99 and according to GMU, the robots will generally operate from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
You can easily keep up with the fleet, as the robots have their own social media accounts: @StarshipGMU.
