Uber.com is a popular mobile app which allows people in various metropolitan areas across the US and eighteen other countries to request a wide variety of rides and pay for them from their phone.
According to that website, it only takes “one tap to ride.” Uber will use your phone’s GPS to find your location and connects you with the closest available driver. This allows you get picked up anywhere, even if you are unsure of the address.
The entire process on Uber is completely cashless. When you initially sign up for your account, you will place a credit card on file and after you arrive at your destination, your fare will be automatically charged to your card on file, and no tip is necessary.
In addition, if other people on your ride also use this app, you can choose the option to split the fare, and Uber.com will automatically split the fare evenly between all Uber members’ cards. All users will also be emailed a receipt.
The website also promises “clear pricing,” saying that you can view all general rates by your city, as well as input your pickup and drop off locations to get a fare quote in advance before you book.
Finally, you can also choose your ride experience by choosing the type of car. UberX is similar to a ride share, like their competitor Lyft, and uses “everyday cars,” or you can choose to limit your rides to taxis, like their competitor Hailo.
Or you can choose a “Black” car, the original Uber ride, which is a standard, black sedan, or an SUV, and finally, a luxury car. UberX is their most affordable choice, and the luxury sedans their most pricey.
And at the end of your Uber experience, you can go onto the app and both rate your driver, as well as give a review of your personal feedback for future users to read and be aware of.
