Uber has taken cities all over the world by storm. For example, Uber in Toronto is absolutely killing it now that the council has approved Uber friendly regulations that allow Uber to operate with ease. A lot of people still haven’t signed up for Uber becasuse they simple aren’t aware of the benefits. Here’s why I think you should sign up (you can also find free uber codes online quite easily, and I highly recommend you sign up through them to get a free first ride to experience Uber).
Uber is affordable. UberX is the cheapest version of Uber, and the fares are easily 20% lower than those of taxi cabs. This means you end up saving a significant amount of money if you use cabs regularly.
Uber is easy to use. With a couple of clicks your Uber is on the way. You can input the address of the destination which is a great feature because it allows you to easily get to an address you don’t know that well without the confusion that typically happens with a taxi cab.
Uber pickup times are significantly faster than those of cabs. If you call a cab to your house, typically you need to call a few providers (because they’re very bad at picking up their phone), and then it takes anywhere from 10-15 minutes. With Uber, it takes around 4-7 minutes, and you don’t have to call. All it takes is a couple of taps on your phone and your Uber is on the way. Far better than calling an unhappy sounding middle aged on the phone who doesn’t give a crap about you.
Its easy to recover lost items. With Uber, the trip information is available on the app. You know the license plate and name of the car you were in. It’s very easy to contact the driver in case you lost something. Also because of the Uber rating system, drivers make sure to give customers excellent service. On the other hand, cab drivers typically provide a low quality service that just doesn’t do the job.
Better customer service is another great reason to use Uber. Uber drivers are typically friendlier, speak excellent English, and oftentime offer free water or mints to customers. Because of the rating system, good customer service is encouraged. Additionally you meet a lot of interesting people through Uber, as most Uber drivers work part time. I’ve met many people in my industry through Uber.
