Get to know … Uber
Sorry to be annoying but yes, I’m traveling today and someone recommended I use Uber to get from the airport to the hotel. I had heard of Uber before but was curious. So I downloaded the app and I started to learn about it.
If you aren’t familiar with Uber it is like a taxi service except, better. It began in 2009 in the San Francisco area by two guys Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick. Prices are higher than your traditional cab but with the app you can actually track a car to see how long your wait is going to be and also get a “quote” beforehand if you are curious as to how much it will cost. When I downloaded the app it asks for your credit card. Cash or credit card never trade hands. Uber automatically charges you. It is so easy.
So many choices, perfect for being in the know when traveling by yourself or with the family. No it isn’t coming to Winston-Salem anytime soon but it is great to know about when you are traveling to any large city here or abroad they are also in locations such as London, Paris, 18 countries worldwide. I love smart ideas, a clean, nice car to ride in or a smelly dirty cab… not a hard decision.
