Most people call a taxi for transportation when looking for a lift to get somewhere. Some may even call a friend who is willing to drive them.

In this day and age, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that there is now an app for requesting a driver.

On Uber, you can request a driver with the click of a button, then set your destination and be picked up within minutes by someone who is in your area.

There are many different options when it comes to choosing what type of Uber car you want to come pick you up.

The most interesting option is the UberX car, which is an everyday driver who gets paid by the app, in a typical car. There is also the UberTAXI option, which is great when you are in a busy area and you don’t want to go through the hassle of waving a taxi down.

Another option is UberBLACK; this option will have a driver pick you up within minutes in a high-end sedan. If you are looking for a more spacious vehicle to get you or you would like to show up somewhere in style and luxury, you can request the UberSUV or UberLUX.

People who have used Uber in the past are capable of rating their driver after their trip so that other users can choose a reliable driver who has been rated with as high as five stars.

When you use Uber, fumbling for cash will never be an issue. Uber uses your credit card or Pay Pal account that is on file and then emails you a receipt with no tip required.

If you are looking for an innovative, fast, and cool new way to get from point A to point B, the Uber app may be what you are looking for.
