I personally used Uber for the first time in Orange County on November 5 to experience just how great this service is. The day before I had signed up for Uber on their website and uploaded the Uber app to my iPhone. For both, I received a confirmation. I was officially ready. At just about 1:00 AM, now early Sunday morning, I got on my app and looked to see how far away the closest driver was. It said 24 minutes away (in major cities the time is typically much shorter). I entered my pick up location and Uber confirmed my order by texting me “your Uber is en route! Sean (4.8 stars) will pick you up in 24 minutes.” Soon after, Sean called me to confirm my address and my order. Diligent, I like that. For the next 24 minutes, I was able to track where Sean was on the app. Twenty-one (21) minutes later, I received another text that said “your Uber is arriving now.” I came outside and was greeted by a well-dressed gentleman opening the door for me. I could tell this experience was going to be much better than a taxi. And it was – Sean held a conversation for most the ride, I could breathe something other than odors from the previous riders, I felt safe and didn’t feel like I was on a ride at Disneyland being tossed from one side of the car to the other just to save a minute, and I didn’t have to stress about asking Sean if I had to pay with cash. Nineteen (19) minutes later, I was at my doorstep. Sean again opened the door and helped me with my bags. I didn’t need cash for payment or even a tip; everything went to the credit card on file. This was certainly better than paying for a stop at the ATM machine just because my taxi driver demanded they only took cash (even though it is clearly marked with a sticker in their vehicle that they are supposed to accept credit cards). By the time I was inside, I had an emailed receipt so I knew exactly how much I was charged (I can imagine this is helpful for business trips). I truly had the best experience with Uber (I gave Sean a 5.0 rating) and am excited to use them again in the future.
