Via – Nice cars, nice drivers, great price, like 5 dollars. Thumbs Up!
Uber – Not great cars, not great drivers, Terrible prices. Thumbs Down.
I took an Uber car from the upper eastside to midtown west. Driver took routes that were very bad which took twice as long. He didn’t follow his old iphone GPS and hit solid traffic. He didn’t speak much English. His car was a not luxury at all, He was on a personal phone call on a hand held phone for half the trip. 30 dollars plus for the trip. Uber.com
I took a Via car back from midtown west to the upper eastside. Got picked up by a super nice, professional driver in a new luxury SUV and they followed their ipad GPS route exactly. A very pleasant ride. 5 dollars total for the trip. RideWithVia.com
Even if Uber cuts its prices in half, Via is so much better. Uber was first, but now that other companies have been added to the mix, Uber is going to have to get much better.
VIA – Thumbs Up!! ——– UBER – Thumbs Down!!
