Uber Philly

By Aaron Byles

A cool new taxi alternative just came to Philly.  I tried it out this weekend and i was impressed.  The company is called Uber.

It’s very simple, much nicer than taking a cab, and only slightly more expensive.  Here is how it works:
  1. Download the app for your smartphone.
  2. Connect your debit card to your account.
  3. Decide if you need a town car or a SUV (great for families or large groups)… fits up to 7 people.
  4. Check the map to find out where the vehicles are.
  5. Request a vehicle and then you get a text message telling you how far away they are…. you can also track the vehicle on the map.
  6. They pick you up in a nice car, with a professional driver… no rude cab drivers or hot and smelly cabs.
  7. They drop you off at your destination and no need to exchange money, it’s automatically charged to your card…. no more pissed off cabbies because your paying with your card.
  8. First class service, and great addition to Philly.

They are also very active on twitter, give them a follow: @Uber_Philly
