Uber ReviewUber is an innovative service that allows people to make transportation arrangements by using a smartphone application that books metered rides provided by drivers of private cars, taxis, and rideshares. Currently available in more than 200 select cities (and expanding on a global basis throughout Europe, Asia and South America), customers use the Uber app to locate a ride in a matter of minutes, view fares for specific locations, request rides, and also track the location of their reserved vehicle. The Uber app can be downloaded from the Windows Store, Apple App Store, and Google Play.
Use Uber as a travel convenience and as a way to expand your overall transportation options. No more getting lost in unfamiliar territory; having to choose a designated sober driver for a night out on the town; or worrying about the hassle of finding a parking space – all of which is especially helpful while in busy metropolitan cities, like New York City. There is absolutely no exchange of cash, as all transactions are made through the Uber app. Since 20% gratuity is automatically added for taxi rides (by default), there is no need to physically tip your driver.
Uber transportation offers a variety of options to match a range of styles and budgets, including the following: uberX (Honda Accord or similar), uberXL (Toyota Sienna or similar), UberBLACK (like Lincoln Town Cars and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class), and UberSUV (Ford Explorer or similar). You can also use Uber to request and pay for a taxi; being charged the standard taxi meter rates plus a $1 booking fee.
As Uber continues to expand markets and grow, they have started to gradually offer benefits and perks, including Momentum, a rewards program available exclusively for Uber driver partners. Also, consumers with an eligible American Express Card (who are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program and possess the latest version of the Uber app for iPhone or Android) can earn 2x points on eligible Uber rides, as well as use points to pay for eligible Uber rides.
