Our blog frequently mentions our use of ride-hailing services when rental cars don't meet our needs due to cost, convenience, parking, tolls, or other factors. We're even conscious of saving money (or getting rebates) when we use services like Lyft and Uber. Our rides have ranged from Uber Black to "regular Uber" and UberX, Uber Pool, and even the ill-fated Uber Shuttle (12-passenger Ford Transit vans to/from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport). And while we use the Uber Pool service, we recognize that time is money and sometimes we weren't OK with spending an additional 20 minutes en route if another passenger had to be picked up / dropped off. Uber has derived a solution that's currently available in eight U.S. markets.
