We are super excited to announce that Uber, the uber cool car service, has made its way to Dallas. Although Uber has been servicing the area for a short while, they are up running in full force offering their services for all sorts of situations. Rally a car for a one way trip to a party, or request round trip to the latest gala.
I have been witnessing the service in town as bars close, and the service is impeccable. To use the service merely load the app and divulge your method of payment. Using the app on your smart phone you call up a car at various levels from a simple car, a black town car or an SUV. Each car has a limitation as far as passengers, but the cost is fixed including the gratuity.
A simple trip across town will most likely cost you around $20, which could be slightly higher than a cab, but the service more than makes up for the difference. The cars are guaranteed clean, the drivers are happy, and the service is speedy.
We have noticed that with some trips, say from Uptown Dallas to Downtown Dallas the cost is about the same once a tip and extra passenger fee has been added to a typical cab ride.
Once you order your car you will be sent messages via text and can also follow your driver on the app. You will receive a photo of the driver, and they will have a photo of you so no one is able to snag your car like it can often happen in a busy cab situation.
Go home safely and quickly using this new Uber service. You now have your own personal driver.
