Using Uber on the Southcoast? U Should
One morning I walked to my car and found a flat tire. Like many newer cars, no spare. Having to get into the studio, my first thought was to call a cab.
When I finally found the number to a local taxi company, they told me the car would arrive in 30 to 45 minutes. I thought "That's the best you can do?" So then I asked what the fare would be from my house to the workplace. The answer, about $40 dollars depending on traffic.
Then, I remembered that Uber is now up and running in my area. I downloaded the app and entered my information. That process took about 5 minutes. I then requested a ride. The driver replied within seconds and indicated that he was about 6 minutes away. I cancelled the taxi, and tracked the Uber car on the screen until it arrived. It was a clean, late model Nissan Altima. I climbed in the backseat and was at work 15 minutes later. That's at least 30 minutes earlier than it would have been with the cab. The charge? $16. That's $24 less than the taxi would have charged.
When you go out to dinner or to any function where there may be cocktails involved, use Uber. A dependable ride with no risk. Uber and the other ride sharing service, Lyft are available on the Southcoast. I'm sure you will use them again and again.
