I took my first Uber ride a few weeks ago while I was in Wichita on business. I will be the first tell you that I was IMPRESSED!
This is Uber according to their website:
Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our apps, we make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers. From our founding in 2009 to our launches in over 200 cities today, Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.
Uber is unlike any other taxi service that I’ve used. The vehicle was clean, the driver was polite and friendly and I controlled everything from my phone.
Accessing Uber through my smart phone was ridiculously easy. A couple taps of the screen and a driver was on his way to me. (PS I didn’t even need the address of where I was being picked up at!)
As soon as Uber assigned me a driver, I was given his name, his profile picture and the information about the vehicle he was driving. The best part? He knew MY name and since I uploaded a picture to the app, he also knew what I looked like. No more getting taxi’s grabbed from me at 2 in the morning (true story).
No need for cash
Seriously, who even uses that stuff anymore? 😛 The Uber app is linked to my PayPal account (you can link to your debit card too). That way, when the ride was over, Uber charged my account and I never had to exchange money with the driver. Score!
