The ride-share program UBER is now available in Redding, details HERE.
The Uber website states that services are not currently available in Eureka but that could change momentarily when people start signing up to be drivers.
This is certainly a welcome development for businesses and seniors, if not for the taxi services in the county. Whoever provides the best service will prevail and that’s the way it’s supposed to be. I normally drive everywhere but if I can get a ride to COSTCO at a reasonable price WITHOUT HAVING TO LOOK FOR A PARKING PLACE I just might do it. Rides to Humboldt State, with its horrible parking situation, are another possibility.
Let us know if you’ve tried UBER, here or elsewhere. It SOUNDS like a great idea. And please don’t send us any links to the Kalamazoo story. It’s horrible but irrelevant.
i have used Uber elsewhere and it has been fabulous!! the cars are super clean and kept up, the drivers are wonderful and have worked with me on so many different levels. they are there in a timely manner! Cant say enough!! College students could do this part time. We need this!!
Sounds good to me! Thanks for writing.
I love UBER and use it a lot when traveling – looking forward to having it in Eureka/Arcata.
I’m looking forward to trying it!
