My family has been after me to try Uber despite my misgivings about them. Last month after I interviewed for my current job, I downloaded the app and tried to get a ride from my place of employment to my roommate's office. I tried 3 different credit cards and none of them would work. My boss told me no one can get a signal unless they walk a few feet to the side of the office and try. Fast Forward to this morning. I had some things to do in Tampa. From my home (and connected to Wi Fi) I try yet again to schedule a ride with uber. As before, None of my Credit cards worked (None of them are close to being maxed out or anything like that and I tried both Visa and MasterCard. Finally, I decide to try to call their customer Service number and get a recording stating it is only for emergency issues. I gave up A few minutes later, I download the Lyft app. Set up my account and I was able to schedule a ride with no issues. I scheduled 2 other ones to different places and finally back to my home. I thought the whole thing was ridiculous. Has anyone else had to deal with such nonsense ?
