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.
