Uber and Lyft will soon be legal in the county
I'm a fan of Uber, never tried Lyft, mostly because I don't want to be drivin around with that big pink moustache on the front of the car - maybe in November for Movember.
Last time I went to the airport a couple of months ago, my fare was $13.99. You don't have to tip, but I gave the driver five bucks. So for $18.99 I was taken to the airport from the Grove - a fraction of the cost of a yellow cab.
One of my friends drives or used to drive for Uber. She told me that she picked up one of the new landowners in the Center Grove, someone I had not met. She started talking to the guy and for some reason, he asked her, "Do you know Falco?" And she said she did and by the end of the ride she had him liking me, he was conflicted at first. So I like that about Uber, too, the drivers are part of the experience, not really like a yellow taxi where the drivers are usually on the phone or in their own world and you feel like a burden in the back of their cab.
Almost a year ago, I wrote an article for the Huffington Post called "Uber Is My New Favorite Thing," you can read about my first experience with Uber here.
