The drivers themselves were an eclectic group with none having done Uber more than six months. Among them a couple were immigrants, one a worker from Baltimore who had time on his hands (holiday), and a gal with a broken foot just to point out a few. All were pleasant to deal with. I was surprised to find out some have driven people to other cities like Philadelphia or Washington D.C. I realize those cities are fairly close but wow.
So overall this is a service I recommend. Like with anything though it is worth doing your homework. I’m sure there are those out there with different experiences which may help you make a decision on using the service. While Uber is somewhat new it seems to be fairing ok so far after some initial backlash. Just thought I’d share my experiences for anyone who isn’t familiar with Uber or had questions.
