Update: Mike asked in the comments what I was afraid of. I answer him here with a story of my worst taxi ride.
I know SO many of you love Uber: exhibit A of the new sharing economy. And I know I’m REALLY late to the party here. But I’m here to confess: I’ve never Ubered. Or Lyfted. Not even when they gave away free manicures or ice cream. I just find Uber, well…creepy.
Yes I’ve been in taxis that weren’t bastions of safety and cleanliness but at least I felt like there was some governmental body I could call if things really went south. With Uber, it just feels like driving without a net.
Here’s the final straw: I asked a fellow family travel blogger for a car service referral from Mexico City airport as I’m traveling with Deal Girl and our flight gets in really late. She recommended, you guessed it, Uber.
So I’m turning this one over to you: if you’re an Uber lover, why?
And if you’re a closet hater, feel free to share that too…you’re in a safe space.
