Summer has arrived in Cape Town and with it the endless events that happens because December, End of year functions, the beaches, outdoor festivals etc. Did I mention it’s summer? Well getting to and from your favourite events have just become easier with Uber taxis.
I’ve been using Uber for about 2 years now and it also started during the summer months. We had some friends over from Jozi and decided to take the Red Hop-on Hop-off busses to show our guests the usual tourist sites. We decided to take the cable car up Table Mountain as a tourist journey in the Mother CIty isn’t complete without it. We got a little hungry and on the way down while still in the cable car I hailed the Uber Black cab to pick us up at the bottom. When we reached the bottom a Mercedes SUV was waiting for our starving selves. It was such a relief not to worry about parking or driving in seasonal traffic. We reached our destination safely thanks to the extremely friendly driver. It was a little pricey because it was Uber Black which is their premium service. Uber have launched Uber X which is the same or cheaper than normal Taxi cabs.
