  1. Amber Hayes (Las Vegas,  Nevada ) paid $ and said:

    I think the distance was approx 5 miles but the driver was extremely courteous & picked me up very quickly, only waited 5 min , I could track where he was too! Love Uber, I like that the drivers are much nicer than regular cab drivers too! I think the top U.S. Included also, I tipped a couple $$ because I didn’t realize that!

    Was it worth it? Yes

    Was it worth it? Yes

  4. Duncan (Phoenix,  Arizona) paid $ and said:

    Be sure to toss in your pickup/destination on right before you take a ride to see if there’s any surge going on at the moment (and if not, you’ll know what the standard price should be).

    Uber still has surges but now they simply dont tell you it’s surging, it’s just a higher ‘upfront price’ so in other words its up to you to know what’s normal and what’s not, to know if theres a big surge or something. tedious yes but smart to do. takes 2 seconds.

    Was it worth it? Yes
