Personally, I use Flywheel. Same level of service, plus I am more secure knowing the drivers have had background checks and carry commercial insurance. Also, the whole thing pays back into the tax base of the city I care about.
(Not to mention the "data posts" on Uber's blog are very poor scholarship, if not outrightly deceptive, as their assertion that Uber's presence correlates with lower DUI rates. There is at most a rough correlation, going only by their assertion, as the do not make their data nor their analysis public, so there's no way to check.)
Plus, yes, I think someone used "dickish" above. True that.
Mostly, I use the not awful public transit. I've taken a cab maybe three times in the last few months. I encourage people to check out Flywheel.
