Ȕber and out
During our time in Shenzhen we have been using the Ȕber taxi service for the first time. I'd only read about it before. Your phone broadcasts where you are, a nearby driver gives you a call and picks you up (you can see the car approaching on your phone map). We never had to wait more than 2-3 minutes for a car to arrive. Our drivers were - without exception - polite, on time and driving new, clean, air-conditioned cars. And the cost was 50-70% that of a normal taxi. What's not to like?
