YES! Uber is now here in Vegas as we are a little more than thrilled and just in case you didn't fully understand our excitement we're giving you are top 3 reasons why this is changing our lives.
1. Although most people believe that everyone in Vegas lives on the Strip, the majority of us actually live in neighborhoods that don't have flashing lights and three foot tall margaritas available on every street corner. Bummer, we know. Getting a cab from one neighborhood to the other is not only really expensive it takes a long time. Most taxi's are on the Strip and rarely leave that area and are usually not that excited to do so. I have actually been kicked out of a taxi when they found out I wasn't going to the Strip! Yeah, seriously. Now when we need a ride we don't have to Google taxi services and deal with grumpsters that don't like where I want to go, which brings us to point number #2...
2. Two words: Super. Convenient. While in Seattle earlier this year, I realized how easy Uber was. It really was all at my fingertips from setting up a pick up, to knowing exactly when the car would get there, to paying.
3. It's about to get serious, so stay with me. People are killed every year from drunk driving so if this service saves one life....we're all about it!!! Everyone loves to have a good time with their friends but that fun also comes with a responsibility and Uber may just be able to decrease the number of drunk driving accidents here in Sin City.
4. Did we say 3 or 4 reasons? Oh well, #4! Who doesn't want to ride with a bunch of random strangers and see what happens when using Uber carpool!! Plus I have had awesome conversations with multiple Uber drivers. I, for one, am excited about the possibilities.
