I fucking love it. I will never go back to cabs. Cheaper, easier, cleaner, no money changes hands... I can't think of a single downside.

I stick to the Subway in the city but have used it in other cities and have to say, it's been all positive.

My experience with it has been fine but I have heard from some lady friends that they've encountered some creepy drivers and that there's not much you can really do it about that because they're not really employees.

My boss and her hubby use it all the time. Me, I so rarely bother taking a cab, that I don't see myself ever using Uber.

I live in queens... One subway stop away from midtown, but mist yellow cabs don't venture outside of Manhattan unless they're dropping off a hire... So Uber has been an absolute godsend whenever they do subway construction, which on the 7 train is like every weekend.

So I'm guessing I don't know what Uber is because I live in Green Bay. We use magic cheese carpets to fly around.

I had a horrific experience with it recently where I got charged $120 to go what should have been 11 miles.

Also, shit like this has happened on occasion:
