Commended by Michael Arrington of TechCrunch for “eliminating everything bad about a taxi experience,” Uber dispatches vehicles with a click of a button. After registering online, customers can forego flagging down cabs or hijacking buses and instead summon one of Uber’s vehicles via the iPhone or Android app or a simple text message. Uber deploys rides within minutes of the request, and offers users the opportunity to rate their driver or give feedback at the end of each journey. Fares are all-inclusive, and hassle-free payments are completed using your credit card on file with no need to tip, thereby eliminating the need to carry cash or learn to count.
