Practical, useful, wonderful.
I started using uber less than half a year ago, and now I use it almost every day. As a college student, uber is perfect for getting me to classes (on time), grocery shopping, my job, and much more. The drivers are all very accommodating and their service is usually top-notch. I think uber's prices are very reasonable as well, far below normal taxi rates, and much more convenient and controlled. One thing I don't quite like is how the prices will rise with demand, making it harder and more expensive to call a car on a rainy day or during rush hour. Overall though, a great app with much potential.
Surge pricing??? Really
I started using this service (uber x to be exact) on a recommendation from a friend. At first I really liked it. That was until I logged in to get a car this morning and got slammed with a 4x the normal rate???? With cabs in Chicago being plentiful, I don't get this marketing strategy. Why would I pay uber 42 bucks when a cab is 12 bucks????
I sent this inquiry to Uber, their response? "if you don't want to pay the fee then find a different service"
OMG REALLY uber? That's amazing customer service, I can't imagine why the city of Chicago is trying to shut you out. You know what? I think I will use a different service from now on.
Awesome App and Service
Use v7l1e promotion for $20 off your first ride.
Prices increase during peak times. UBER calls this their “surcharge”. Always request a fare quote before confirming ride.
Very reliable. Opted to use PayPal for payment.
