Uber?

tracy1963

This is my day for learning about new things. (new to me) I just completed a survey about Uber. The idea sounds good. How safe could it really by. Just because someone has a good driving record doesn't mean they might not kill you. I do watch a lot of true crime. What are you thoughts about Uber ?
Or other apps that are similar
I really want to find out more about this.

I love Uber only because it's cheaper than taking a taxi. In my opinion if you are on the streets you are never safe. Even if you or a person you are driving with is a good driver you cannot account for others. It's the same taking a city bus or whatever form of transportation you are taking.

thank you Shystarr79 that is so true about never being safe. That is awesome to know that it is cheaper then a taxi. The survey I did said it is going to be available in BC by the end of this year.

I absolutely love using Uber. It is so much cheaper, and you have everything laid out for you in the app.
I have taken Uber, literally close to 50 times, and have never had the same Uber driver either & I have had no negative experiences.
I love it.

I have used Umber a few times. I love that it is cheaper, and safer. My phone contains up to date information on exactly where I am, which I can share with my son, so when I leave some where, he can see exactly where I am, the ed rivers name , licence number and kind of car.
I get the driver info when I book, so I know exactly who is coming and the car details before they even arrive. Then having good so eine follow your route makes it safer than a taxi, in my opinion.

As @wendyroy said, your phone and the app tracks your location throughout the entire ride, and it shows if your driver goes off of the route they're supposed to. You can also use it to forward your driver's name, car description, license plate, etc. to a friend in case you are worried. But all of that information will also be stored should something go wrong.
I've personally never had any problems and it saves money for me. I've seen stories of girls online that have had some creepy experiences with uber drivers though and that's a possibility with a taxi/uber/bus/on the street. I have heard of the reverse situation happening as well where passengers (usually drunk) will attack their uber drivers and it's just so sad.

In my opinion, if it's available in your city you should give it a try. Your first ride is free up to $20 so you could price out a few trips on the app before you take any so you can get your money's worth. It ends up costing around half of what a taxi would generally speaking.

I use uber whenever my bf & I want to go out and drink and not worry about getting home.
All of our experiences have been great! Quick, convenient, friendly, & clean.
I think it's safer than taking a taxi.
