    You cannot book a auto-rickshaw with Uber tho, there's another app called Ola for that. Uber is cheaper anyways.

    Ha anyone here used it what are the advantages of it over a regular taxi and would you use one again?
    I use Uber regularly in London and it definitely works out cheaper than a blackcab. You do get to ride some nice cars occasionally, like a Mercedes S-Class.

    However, if you are in a hurry don't take an Uber. They don't know how to avoid traffic because they just follow the app. Also, some Uber drivers are ****ing stupid. Every now and then there will be someone who parks like 50 meters away from your pickup spot and expects you to walk over.

    Yeah I use it, you can have unlimited free rides if you keep joining with different emails and codes . Plus, the drivers actually try to give good service to get that 5 star rating.
    You would also need unlimited payment methods to do that.

    #I could have called Uber
    It might have been there sooner
    It might have been way cheaper
    But the price ain't too much
    I got blocked off my Uber, girl
    It could have been way sooner, girl
    But no worries with my Addison Lee

    I think she made 10 accounts for one 'family' using the same card, and got 10 free rides?

    Uber requires you to have a new card for each account if you want the new customer free ride
