Whether you’re for it, against it or have not yet made up your mind, you probably heard about Uber in the news recently. Transforming the way we use transportation and stirring much controversy in several cities regarding the legality of offering ride-sharing without first obtaining a license, it seems Uber is more than ready to fight back and carve itself a chunk of the market.
I tried UberX for the first time earlier this evening. It took me less than 5 minutes to download the app on my Android phone, create a profile, enter my payment information and set up a pickup location. The car, a clean and comfortable sedan, arrived within less than 4 minutes. We were greeted by a very amicable Uber driver who, he told us, worked for the service on weekends only. The ride was smooth and the whole process – ordering a ride, payment being automatically processed, receiving an invoice in my inbox and being dropped off right in front of my home – was efficient. Without hesitation; five stars.
