As said by a San Francisco attorney, ”The best thing about Uber is that it is reliable. When we need to get somewhere on time, Uber is something I can depend on, even on short notice. It is also easier to find than a taxi, faster than public transportation, and more comfortable than either of those options. It’s even better than driving myself since I don’t need to look for parking.”
