UBER: The Mighty Ride!

An UBER X for a casual clubbing night or an UBER BLACK for a fancy date?

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you’re probably not updated with the prominent fad of Taxi’s or Car Share.

UBER is an international transportation company, headquartered in San Francisco, California, that connects users to request trips through a mobile-app based network. It connects users and drivers in minutes and is seamlessly evolving globally.

UBER X: It is a low cost option for all the users looking for a cheap and a convenient trip.

UBER BLACK: It is a premium option for all the users who area keen in indulging in some luxury whilst they ride.

So How Does it Work?

As the current generation is undergoing a technological haul, it is evident that almost everyone is carrying or using a smartphone. UBER made the perfect decision in revolving their business model around a mobile-based transportation network. Users are asked to submit their trip requests on the UBER app that allows them to track the details of the driver, the estimated cost of the trip, and additional useful information. There is no exchange of money with the driver but the user is automatically charged on the credit card provided during sign up. UBER is believed to be competitively priced as compared to the regular cabs. To view the UBER vs Taxi fare difference chart, click here.
