A Superlative Example

When we're in the New York area, we park at a rest area in New Jersey that provides easy access to New York City by train, but getting to the train station means hailing a cab.  That's not really a problem because the train station is close and they always have cabs available, but on this trip we decided to use Uber.

When I first heard everyone talking about Uber, I didn't really understand how it worked.  "We'll just call an Uber." they'd say.  What's an Uber? What?  Really?  You just call a stranger to come pick you up?  In their own car??  It sounded weird.  But Ed downloaded the app and used it a few times without me, getting to and from the truck a few times.

Turns out, it's really convenient.  You get on the app, tell it where you want to go, and it shows you the closest driver to your location.  And you can see in real time where that driver is and how far away they are.  So far, all of our experiences have been great.  Nice drivers, nice cars, very affordable, and the best part - you don't have to pay in cash, everything goes through the app.  No awkward moments handing a cabbie cash.  I hate that part. 

The door-to-door service is totally worth it.
