Hack: Taxis on tap
Here’s an interesting taxi service for consultants always on the go: Uber has an app so that you can specify the pick up time/place and have the service charged to your credit card.
It serves a fair number of major cities and may be useful for those that don’t want to do the old fashioned thing: call 🙂
BTW: WSJ had a interesting analysis of the business model behind the company. Summary: It’s growing at 30%, takes 20% of the average fare ($30) and had a valuation of ~$300m last year. Wired has a write up from the drivers’ point of view. Summary: They love it.
