Like the title of this article says – forget the taxi and call for black car service instead! Uber Car is the hottest new thing in Baltimore transportation. Baltimore area residents and visitors have always been able to call airport transportation to have a black car to take them to and from the Baltimore Washington International Airport but beyond that it was necessary to call a limousine service well ahead of time to set up fancy transportation. But not anymore! Now you can call Uber to have an Uber X car, black sedan, SUV, or luxury vehicle pick you and your date (or your partying friends) up anywhere around Baltimore to take you from point A to point B. The UberX costs the least (and is the smallest) option and the luxury Uber vehicle costs the most, of course.
One of the best things about Uber is that no money changes hands; everything is handled electronically. All you have to do is simply download the Uber app to your smartphone or go to their website to create an account. When you create an account you will be asked to store credit or debit card information (don’t worry, it’s secure) for a card that you will use for payment of services. When you want to take that lucky lady out for a special date or have a worry free night of bar hopping around town with your friends, all you have to do is use the app or website and enter your location and your desired destination. You will be given an estimate (which is quite accurate) of what the cost of Uber transportation will be and if you accept it you will be given an ETA for a nearby car to pick you up. Want to split your fare with friends? No problem! Uber can send them a message on their phone’s Uber app to charge their card for a portion of the fee, you friend will juts have to tap the “Accept” button.
When an Uber car arrives at your location you are given a call or text on the phone to let you know they have arrived. When you head on out to the car the driver even gets out and opens and closes the doors for you. Uber lets you enjoy getting from one place to another with friendly drivers that will carry a good conversation if you ‘d like and once you arrive at your destination, they help you out of the car and tell you to have a great time and go on their way. No, no need to tip them, that is taken care of when you order the car and set up the electronic payment.
That’s Uber! Easy peasy and very enjoyable, too!
