Uber Taxi Promo Code

Free Uber ride: click here for a free ride up to $20 using the promo code "uberd4h"

I’ve been car-free since 2007, so I’m always looking for new ways to get around. In Chicago, a bike is generally the fastest way to get around, but sometimes it gets cold. Real cold. Not to mention, riding a bike around everywhere can get dangerous.

Sometimes I take the bus, but much of the time, it’s not unusual for it to take 40 minutes to get somewhere. Since productivity is about mind management, not time management, it’s not worth the hassle. I want to get where I’m going, fast.

I used to take taxi’s sometimes. While that was fast, it was often unpleasant. The majority of taxi drivers and cab drivers I’ve had have been rude, and unsafe drivers. They talk on the phone the whole time they’re driving, they make you car sick, and when it comes time to pay, they groan if you pull out your credit card. Not to mention that spending $15 to get from point A to point B adds up quickly.

Uber, and other ride-sharing services such as Lyft (promo code), have dramatically improved the experience of living in a big city like Chicago. With Uber, you can get rides in nice luxury towncars (for a premium price), or you can get around for much less than the cost of a regular taxi with Uberx, which is a service where regular, (background-checked) folks give you a ride. A taxi ride that would cost $15 in a regular taxi tends to cost only about $10 in Uberx.

If you aren’t ready to try Uberx, you can still get a regular taxi delivered to your door in most cities. These taxi drivers tend to be more courteous, because Uber has a rating system, and only allows the best drivers.
