UberX is illegal (I've heard Uber is paying the fines the drivers are getting) but the Uber core service is a very pleasant alternative to taxis at a small premium.

whats the main difference between the two, there must be a way they can justify the low cost

I wonder how hard it is to get on a Saturday night, the other night I had to pay the taxi driver an additional $8 cause he said my destination was to short

Friday evening, you cant get a cab anywhere.

Hailstorm - I requested an Uber standing in the entrance to a hotel, got the X he arrives guided by GPS it cost me $6 to get home, I was so impressed I gave him a $10 tip

No money changes hands it's all debited from a credit card you give when you sign up, thats another advantage, just get out and go.

Seems too good to be true, so I guess the taxi industry will try to shut it down.

The core service is $20 minimum and worth every cent in my opinion.

And what's more they send you notification within minutes of the cost, the distance travelled, the time it took and the drivers name and photo and a map of the route taken .
