More About Uber:

Uber is your on-demand private driver. Request a ride at any time using our iPhone and Android apps or from m.uber.com. Tell us where you want to be picked up. On the iPhone and Android apps, set your pickup location on the map. On m.uber.com, type your address. In the US and Canada, text an address and city to UBR-CAB (827-222).

We’ll dispatch the nearest driver to pick you up. You’ll also receive a text with the estimated arrival time. When the car arrives, you’ll get another text. Hop into the sleek black car, tell the driver your destination, and you’ll be on your way.

After the ride, Uber will automatically charge the credit card you have on file. There’s no need to hand your driver any payment, and the tip is included. Of course, drivers always appreciate a “thank you.” Prices start with a base fare. After that, we charge depending on speed. When travelling at over 11mph, we charge a distance fee. Below 11mph, we charge a time fee.
