In-car vending machines — as the snack boxes from companies like Cargo and Vendy were called — in your Uber or Lyft have either moved onto the next idea or stalled out.
Uber drivers with Cargo boxes filled with snacks, water, and other goods, like phone chargers, recently received an email that the vending machines were done.
The Cargo vending machines served as a bridge to full-blown mobile advertising.
