Uber is the future of city travel

10/15/2013

We were finishing coffee and dessert with my nephew at a restaurant in Washington's DuPont area and it was time to consider our options to get back to our hotel.It was a good opportunity to check out Uber. 

Uber is a company that provides on-call car rides in 26 cities in the U.S. and 20 more in Europe and Asia. Strictly speaking, Uber cars aren't taxis. They are privately-owned vehicles that operate under a city's rules governing limousines, not taxi cabs. But they compete with taxis on price and convenience. Fans of Uber's service say it's more accessible, reliable, comfortable and convenient than a traditional taxi ride.

We got a new Toyota sedan, a friendly driver, a reasonable fare billed directly to my credit card and a receipt on my phone that included a map of our route.
