Uber - transportation from Tampa Airport

Hi everyone! I just wanted to report that I used Uber for a airport pick up and drop off last week and it worked great! I was picked up at the Tampa Airport and dropped off at our Clearwater Beach hotel (Coral Resort), we also used Uber for our ride back to the airport. It ended up being cheaper than using the Super Shuttle. Our trip from the airport to hotel was $35 and our return trip was $26 (Uber Tampa had just reduced their rated by 15% during out stay). I highly recommend this service! Also, it appears that Lyft is also in the Tampa/Clearwater area.

Amanx,

I have my doubts about Uber too, but it certainly is growing in popularity.

I've never used Uber - but it looks like they do provide insurance that covers their passengers. The State regulator ruled in October that they provide the necessary insurance. We'll have to see how this all plays out legally. tampabay.com/news/…2202383

Yeah, I got that hence my 'wow'. But they have been a member for over 5 years even if this is the fist time they have piped up.

When I was there just last week, there were constant adds on the radio trying to sign up new drivers.

I will not take one, ever. Need a taxi this week in london, but wil not use UBER and am using a private car service I have used before. Cheaper than a reg taxi. In the US I use reg taxis as I only take short trips- if I need a longer trip I rent a car.
