I finally took an Uber and a Lyft for the first time while I was in Miami a few months ago. I was excited. However, my mom who was traveling with me, was concerned. A few bad news stories made her think that ridesharing drivers merely serial killers in disguise. After a little coaxing, I convinced her we should give it try. The result? After 2 days of ridesharing all over South Beach she was loving it. She enjoyed talking to the different drivers, their speedy arrivals and how they magically showed up with the touch of a button. If you’re new to ridesharing or you’re trying to convince someone to give it a shot, you’ll enjoy my story on ridesharing. It tackles everything from how it works to if you should tip.
