    That sounds good but it would be costly for me since I go to Monterey twice a month usually, going tomorrow in fact.

    That's a 300 mile round trip.

    Also, it works for you because everything is very close in Fresno...if you live in the boonies somewhere it will cost a lot more.

    I'm surprised though that you went all those places for only $100?

    People can live without a car. That's my goal someday.

    I had a 12:30 PM appointment with my Dermatologist to undergo a five minute radiation treatment to my forehead for a Squamous Cell Skin Cancer. None of my family or the Assisted Living Facility was able to take me so at 12 PM I called Uber on my I Phone and within 5 minutes Bruce shows up in his Toyota Camry, put me in the front seat and my Walker in the trunk.We got to my appointment at 12:20 PM and I finished up at the doctors at 12:50 PM and called Uber once again. Cheryl showed up this time at 1PM in a Toyota Prius and took me back home, arriving at 1:35 PM.I gave each driver a five star rating and then checked the charges for the trip. My first ride was $10.15 & the second $11.05 for a total of $21.0. I don't tip.
    I will be getting the same radiation treatment this coming Thursday the 16th but will be taken to my appointment by the Limo Service provided as part of my rent.

    I like Uber. We use Uber whenever we're in Washington DC.

    Since giving up driving three years ago I have become a big fan of UBER and just discovered a new feature that they have that is great for me and that is the ROUND TRIP FEATURE for the price of one trip.
    I used Uber to go to the drive by window at the pharmacy to pick up one of my prescriptions. My cost was $6.00. I am not always able to have some one pick up my rx when I need it and this is a super alternative.
    As long as the stop is three minutes or less there is no additional charge.

    I use both Uber and Lyft. For the money I save not having to buy oil, tires, upkeep and insurance....it's a SUPER deal.
    @Lon Tanner I'm so glad you are happy with their service and it gives you a new sense of freedom at an affordable price.
