Never Miss Uber Promo Code
My son will be turning five this spring and I find myself on Etsy in ALL of mys pare time, scouring the internet for Ghostbusters paraphenalia. I'm having his party in my home because I just cannot afford a $500 price tag at the local trampoline park. †And let me tell you--custom party supplies aren't cheap either. This is not to mention the brand new bike he wants. How is the average family supposed to afford a modern birthday party? Renting bouncy houses is not a whole lot cheaper--easily...
Some people go out and trick-or-treat with their kids on Halloween. Some people go out and party in awesomely adult Halloween costumes. (Please line up and Uber or Lyft if you do. Drunk driving death rates are very high during this holiday. We want to see you and everyone on the road that night make it home safe.) Still others curl up on their couch with someone whoís okay with them digging their fingernails into their forearm as they watch scary movies. This post is for that last group. Pop...
Packing school lunches is not the funnest part of back-to-school season. You want your kid to eat healthily, but to do that you either have to run to the store repeatedly for fresh food, or buy in bulk to save money on products that are full of preservatives. This year, thereís another option. You can save on uber healthy school lunches (weíre talking straight-up organic) without having to trot to the grocery store every couple of days. You can do all this through Amazon Fresh, which offers...
Owning a car is expensive. †Really expensive. †As of 2014, the average annual cost of owning a vehicle, taking into account insurance, gas, depreciation, annual registration fees, and maintenance, was $8,876 per year. †Believe it or not, that number was down about $225 from 2013. †Thatís a lot of money to be shelling out to own a vehicle, especially if you donít have to. †Thatís money that could be used for vacations, retirement funds, emergency savings, or college 529s. You may think you...
Uber Technologies Inc. is an American worldwide online transportation network company headquartered in San Francisco, California. It develops markets and operates the Uber mobile "app", which allows consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request, which the software program then automatically sends to the Uber driver nearest to the consumer, alerting the driver to the location of the customer. Uber drivers use their own personal cars. As of August 2016, the service was available in over 66 countries and 507 cities worldwide. The Uber app automatically calculates the fare and transfers the payment to the driver. Since Uber's launch, several other companies have replicated its business model, a trend that has come to be referred to as "Uberification".
On a snowy Paris evening in 2008, Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp had trouble hailing a cab. So they came up with a simple idea—tap a button, get a ride.
What started as an app to request premium black cars in a few metropolitan areas is now changing the logistical fabric of cities around the world. Whether it’s a ride, a sandwich, or a package, we use technology to give people what they want, when they want it.
For the women and men who drive with Uber, the company's app represents a flexible new way to earn money. For cities, we help strengthen local economies, improve access to transportation, and make streets safer. When you make transportation as reliable as running water, everyone benefits. Especially when it’s snowing outside.
The Uber app software requires the users and drivers to have a smartphone.

Uber's pricing is similar to that of metered taxis, although all hiring and payment is handled exclusively through the Uber app and not with the driver personally. In some cities, if the Uber car is travelling at a speed greater than 11 mph (18 km/h), the price is calculated on a distance basis; otherwise, the price is calculated on a time basis. At the end of a ride, the complete fare is automatically billed to the customer's credit card. Uber has said its prices are the premium that the customers pay for a cab service that is not only reliable, but also punctual and comfortable. In April 2016 Uber began allowing drivers to place signs in their windows stating that they can accept tips.
Uber is the smartest way to get around. One tap and a car comes directly to you. Your driver knows exactly where to go.
You can always request everyday cars at everyday prices. But sometimes you need a bit more space. Or you want to go big on style. With Uber, the choice is yours.
What makes the Uber experience truly great are the people behind the wheel. They are mothers and fathers. Students and teachers. Veterans. Neighbors. Friends. The company's partners drive their own cars—on their own schedule—in cities big and small. Which is why more than one million people worldwide have signed up to drive.
A city with Uber has more economic opportunities for residents, fewer drunk drivers on the streets, and better access to transportation for those without it.
