Uber is revolutionizing the way we get around, just like Google changed the way search. The benefits associated with using Uber is unparalleled both in terms of cost and convenience. I use it always when I am in Washington DC, especially at nite when I don’t feel comfortable using the metro. The beauty of Uber is that you can request a car on the spot, the Identity of the car and driver are sent to you via SMS, and most important you don’t need to carry cash. Once you download the Uber app on your smartphone your payment information is stored and you will receive a confirmation on the amount that was deducted on each trip.
I can easily see how residents of LA can benefit from Uber given the congested freeways and the distances.
