After 2 rides I’m on the Uber bandwagon as well. What is the biggest draws to Uber in my eyes?
A quiet car. Holy shit. I must have gotten used to the clamor of walkie talkies, receipt machines, and Dididache bells, because sliding into an Uber and being confronted with silence was a profound experience. Okay, I’m fudging it a bit, it wasn’t silent: there was classical music playing.
In a city and a life that is generally very in-your-face and very loud, it’s nice to get at least a temporary respite while you’re getting from one place to another.
