Tired of Taxis? Try Uber!

Uber - One of many ride-share companies!
Tired of taxis? More and more options are available at a street corner near you! This post focuses on one such option: Uber. This is a service you use through an app on your smartphone. After you sign-up with your information and link a credit card, you simply request an Uber car through the app. The driver can text or call you, and you get up to the minute details on when the car will arrive.

Regarding safety, Uber does background checks on their drivers. Most drive relatively new cars (often an energy efficient Prius). But, as more and more ride-sharing services enter the market, there are likely to be more rules and regulations to help keep everyone safe!

Bonus! Get your first ride (up to $15) free through this link!
