What do we like the most about Uber?
Safety: Uber drivers go through an extensive background check in order to be accepted into the platform. Not only do drivers have to have a clean driving record but also a clear criminal record. There is also a formal job interview to guarantee a high quality and safe ride for the users. The service is used both during night and day, therefore the safety of the user is one of the top priorities of the enterprise, the user can check the plates, color and picture of the driver before getting into the car in order to make sure they’re being taken care of by the selected vehicle.
Availability: In most cases uber drivers are available 24/7, this comes as a big advantage for people in need for a ride in off hours. The user has the possibility to select a ride at late night hours, or set up a ride with hours in advance. Book a trip to airports and the drivers take the destination beforehand, meaning that the user can select any destination without the driver being able to refuse it, this can give the user the satisfaction of arriving safe and fast to their destination.
Vehicle variety: Uber offers different types of vehicles for their users, this can vary according to price, comfort and need. The UberX is a standard and one of the most used ones, they’re usually common models and it can transport up to 4 passengers. The Uber XL is the bigger version of the uberx, it can fit up to 6 to 8 passengers depending on the model and it’s usually available and convenient for bigger groups, a big advantage is that you can share the cost of the ride with the other passengers on the ride.
Uber Pool and Ride Sharing: Uber pool can be used by different uber subscribers simultaneously, if you're planning a route, the driver can pick up other users along the way making the ride not only more economical but also sometimes, more fun! The ride sharing can be used to split the cost of the ride with your friends or colleagues when using the uber ride and also alert others when you hop on the ride so they can see your live location and make sure you arrive home safe and sound.
