I’m happy to say my first experiences with Uber were positive.
My first ride was yesterday. I had just dropped my car off at a repair shop, so I requested a ride home. The driver was courteous, neatly dressed, and drove a meticulously clean Hyundai Santa Fe.
My second ride was today, from my office back to the shop. While the driver wasn’t quite as neatly dressed and his Nissan Altima not quite as meticulously detailed, he was every bit as courteous.
Both drivers were flexible about the route we took, keeping us off the freeways when appropriate, even when the Uber driver app suggested otherwise. Both were also happy to answer questions I had about Uber.
