I have had several friends come up to me ask me what is Uber since they don’t live in the city I thought it was
understandable but, then another friend from mine in Brooklyn said he didn’t know what Uber was and I was surprised. Uber is a taxi service company that uses a smartphone app to connect passengers to taxi cabs but not any taxi cab but a reserved taxi cab.
It is pretty simple to use you go on the app let Uber find your location choose the desired car type and hit request and then Uber finds the next available driver. I find this pretty convenient because you can choose between a sedan and an SUV and you don’t have to spend 15 minutes flagging down a taxi. In addition the app doesn’t have any bugs so you won’y have to worry about crashing or freezing problems.
Even though the fair is on average around a dollar more expansive than a normal cab, it is still better because you get a guaranteed taxi whenever you want and everybody loves convenience.
U have a feeling that this company is going to be going far because of the expansion opportunities. Right now it is only in the city but imagine if they had drivers in the suburbs and in rural areas this would be pretty convenient.
