Uber: To Use Or Not To Use?

Ridesharing has been getting a good deal of press lately, and for good reason. With rideshare, people can get a ride using your smartphone. If you are considering using Uber or another rideshare service, here is a quick look at the pros and cons.

  • Pros: With a rideshare service app downloaded to your smartphone, you can hail a ride and get a quote for the cost in advance. The car is tracked on a map as it makes its way towards you, and you will be able to see the driver’s rating to ensure you are getting a good ride. You pay via credit or debit card information you have already input into the app so there is no need for money to change hands, making the transaction easier.
  • Cons: With a traditional taxi company, you get reliability because you are hailing their company as a whole, not individual drivers. Taxis are also generally easier to recognize than their rideshare counterparts, which are usually only identified by a placard in the window.
