UBER is our favorite way to travel in Seattle. It's just sooo easy... You download the app, pick the type of vehicle you would like to travel in, and within minutes an Uber car is there to pick you up. Here is a screenshot from our favorite iPhone app below:
In Seattle, three Uber car services are available. UberX is cheaper, a little more sporty, and uses hybrid and mid-range vehicles. Uber "Black" is the original, using high-end sedans to make your destination arrival a stylish one. Uber "SUV" is the most expensive, but seats up to six people.
Above is our college design comrade Jeff in an UberBlack at 3:30am. Jeff came to visit us in Seattle this week to celebrate the 4th of July, but his flight out of Boston was delayed by 5 hours... hence the late arrival and tired eyes. He was stoked however to be riding in an Uber, and taking advantage of their flat rate from SeaTac airport to downtown ($50).
Our favorite part about Uber is the cool people who drive their cars, and how you pay for their services. It's all a part of the app. (pictured above: Emily on her first UberX ride after the Mariners game this past week). Seattle taxi drivers are notorious for giving you a hard time if you don't pay in cash. What we like about Uber is the fact that your ride gets charged to the card on file with them, and tip is included.
We love Uber so much forYoungModerns even participated in the Pride parade last Sunday with Uber Seattle! -Dancing in the streets while thousands of people celebrated on the sidelines was such a surreal and awesome experience... we even received free Uber tanks!
