Top 5 Alternatives to UberIf you're looking to hail a ride and be done with Uber, these are your best options.
These are the top five alternatives to Uber. Uber has the tendency to rub people the wrong way. If you are looking for a way to hail a ride Uber free, check out these apps. At number five is Juno, what's Juno's hook? It provides equity in the company to the drivers. The company also takes 10% of each ride, Uber takes up to 25% of the cost. The idea behind Juno is that if the drivers are happier, you'll have a better trip. Right now the service is limited to New York City. The company told me that it plan to expand but details but details are still to be determined. And number is Via, in the U.S. at Chicago, New York and Washington D.C. That's pretty limited, but hear us out. The rides are really cheap. In Manhattan, rides between 6am and 8pm paid with a pre-purchase credit are a flat five dollars per ride. In Chicago rides before 9pm are $3.95 plus some fees. And in DC rides are around three dollars. And number three is Gett. Fairly limited in the US, Gett is available in the UK, Russia, and Israel. Overall, there are over 100 cities where you can get a Gett. In the US, Gett's hook is the only time we surge is never o'clock. And number two is curb. This app works in 65 cities in the US. The site says it works with 60,000 cabs and 100,000 drivers. It brings a cab to you like every other ride hailing app and allows you to tip without having Happen to take out your wallet. I asked you fine folks, what Uber alternatives do you use? Mike said, they're called taxis. You may have heard of them. Ted said, bicycle, when it's not 25 degrees outside. And Yong-Kee said, Kakao Taxi in Korea. All of those responses were great answers. Thanks! On to number one. The number one alternative to Uber is of course Lyft. It's essentially the anti Uber and is accessible from over sixty airports all over the US. Lyft is also available in Malaysia, Thailand, and China. Additionally according to a number of reports, Lyft is nicer to it's drivers. And who doesn't want a pleasant driver. Did they leave anything out? Let me know. I'm @Iyaz on Twitter and I'll see you online. [BLANK_AUDIO]
