Reminder Update: I originally posted about this yesterday. It was a popular post. A lot of people have taken advantage of the promo code so don’t miss out!
I recently used Uber for the first time and had an awesome experience. I’m now a big fan and highly recommend Uber and use it whenever I possibly can. Not only is it 30% cheaper than a traditional taxi ride, it’s also more convenient and reliable.
Uber is a low-cost ridesharing option that connects you with on-demand transportation in minutes. It’s available in 60 countries and over 300 cities worldwide. The company is valued at over $50 Billion!
Here’s why Uber is awesome:
- Cashless & Convenient: You don’t need cash. The fare is automatically charged to your credit card on file – no need to tip.
- One Tap to Ride: Uber uses your phone’s GPS to detect your location and connects with the nearest available driver. Get picked up anywhere – usually within minutes.
- Reliable Pick-ups: When you request a ride, they’ll located a driver and let you track their location on the map. Your drivers name, car details and ratings will appear in the app.
- Clear Pricing: Can enter your pick-up and drop-off locations to get a fare estimate before your trip.
Here’s how to get riding:
