Hi my name is Bayardo and I have been using uber since they started ! I use uber very often as I am glad . All of the Drivers are so respectful and give a great service ! I have been working in Aventura mall for 12 years now and every single time I wanted to takea cab I will almost beg them, because it was a short trip to my apartment yellow taxi drivers didn't want to take me , this driver will ignore me or pretend they didn't speak English , hundreds of time I watch how this people will fight if other yellow cab driver will not make the line there and take a costumer , it's a shame that in that kind of mall everyday this is going on . My worst experience was one raining day that it was late and after 12 hours working I just wanted to go home I took a yellow cab , first of all I beg him to take me , it was a short trip from aventura mall to Collins 189st taking the William lehmous causeway , this guy drove to biscayne 163 then to Collins 163 st and then to my place all the way I keep asking him why he was driving this wrong way, witch he ignore me and last was aggressive , he pretended to charge me 30 dollars for a ride it was 9 dollars, since that day I WILL NEVER TAKE A YELLOW CAB or even recommend there service !!! I really hope that UBER stays in town to help us with there wonderful service
