Cab it in style with Uber

5 Apr

Tired of trying to hail cabs at the end of a long night out on the town? Really tired of the cabbie doing the ol’ rolling stop just so he can reject you because you’re going somewhere farther than he wants to go? Extremely tired of kicking said cabbie’s cab? I am.

Uber is a car service that you don’t need to book way in advance. Just download the app (available for iPhone and Android), request a pickup at your location, you’ll get a text with the ETA, you’ll get a text when the car arrives, and you go. The best part is the fare (incl tip) is charged automatically to your credit card on file. Now that’s hassle free!

Uber operates in all of DC, Bethesda, Tyson’s Corner, Falls Church, Annandale, and Alexandria. Here’s a breakdown of charges:
