Uber. It seems to be everywhere BUT Buffalo. Even Erie, Pennsylvania has it!

So what is Buffalo missing out on? What is Uber?

Uber is marketed as a convenient, inexpensive and safe taxi ride. All you have to do is download the app and look for an Uber driver near you.

You can check out the driver’s ratings before scheduling your ride to make sure you’re getting a friendly face. And all Uber drivers have to pass background and DMV checks, so you know it’s safe.

When you’re scheduling your ride, you get a few different choices of the type of car you want to be in. From your everyday car to a sleek Porsche, there’s lots of different ways to ride.

It’s also easy to pay. All you have to do is take a picture of your credit card and it will be charged right to your account. No awkward fumbling of cash at the end of your ride. And the best part, you don’t need to tip!

So, what do you think? Is Buffalo missing out?
