Uber is a taxi calling service that has successfully spread all over the world since 2008. Currently, the Uber app and service operates in more than 500 cities around the world. The Uber application includes a map on which the client sees his location via GPS data, as well as all taxi cars that are in close vicinity.
The Main Advantages
When looking for a taxi car, you can indicate the class of the car which you prefer right in the application. By tapping on the car shown on the map, you can see all the necessary information about this car and its driver: contacts, license plate, photo, etc.
To call a taxi car, you do not need to call anywhere and provide the address of your location, frantically looking around in search of an address sign on neighboring buildings. The taxi driver sees the location (GPS coordinates) of the client on the map. At the same time, the client can track the approach of the selected vehicle.
Rank System and Fees
All Uber users are ranked. After completing the trip, the passenger is asked to rate the driver, and the driver is asked to rate the passenger. Low-rated users may be blocked from the system.
The cost of an Uber trip consists of three components: a car call, the cost of one minute, and the cost of one kilometer. In this case, the cost can be found out before the trip - by specifying two starting points, the client receives a calculation of the cost of the trip on the selected car.
You can pay for a taxi call through the Uber service both in cash and by bank transfer. In the second case, the money is automatically withdrawn from your bank card, which you connected to the service at the time of registration. It should be noted that if, in the event of calling a car, the client, for some reason, decides to cancel the trip without notifying in advance, the funds will still be debited from his card.
