Same here. I've only used them a couple times but they show up really quick, they don't blatantly go the long way around like cab drivers here do, and it doesn't seem much more expensive.

Me too. I use them on business trips to the Bay area, and they're great. Plus I get real receipts instead of sweaty blank business cards.

That's because if you think they took the long way then you say so in the rating/review on your phone.  Each trip that I've left a review for has been checked by an Uber rep.  The one review I gave 4 stars on I commented that I wished he'd known about construction and gone around.  They checked the route the driver took, looked it over and talked about different routes that could have been taken.  He then asked if I was displeased enough to request a refund.  It may not be for all cities but the Seattle Uber crew is REALLY on top of things.

yeah i was really surprised by how seriously they took my 3 star rating. an uber rep followed up with me the next day and assured me that they would do the same with the driver.

I wish our local ice cream truck carried soft-serve.  Instead, it's just pre-packaged crap that I can buy anywhere.

No, no. It's a handcrafted desert food truck. Geez, people.

/still too cheap to ride Uber

If a uber driver gets below a 4.6 star average - they are let go.

Here's a far superior idea: just bring the ice cream without the ridiculous truck and its idiotic repetitive loudspeaker music. You could call it something like "Web Van".

Do the ice cream trucks bring drugs?
