Uber: They’re finding better ways for cities to move, work, and thrive. After downloading the app, you’ll get a ride within minutes. Then enter your payment info, choose your type of ride, and set your location to get started. You’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map. When you arrive at your destination, just hop out—they’ll automatically charge the credit card on file. And there’s no need to tip.
