Multiple times I've relied on Uber to take me home, safely. When my friends are unable to take me back home after a night on the town, I know I can trust there will be an Uber driver around the corner to give me a lift. Without Uber at such convenience, I would be exposed to more unsafe road conditions because of the limited amount of service to the high-traffic areas of South Tampa. By using a car-sharing service, my friends and I are also lowering our carbon footprint in the Tampa Bay Area. As young professionals, we see the TB Area as a new hub for the advancement in technology because of the choices our generation makes! By using Uber, I know we are helping lower the amount of hazardous car emissions on the road and improving the quality of life in our future home. If you have any questions, I'm happy to elaborate or discuss my positive experiences with Uber any time :) Cynthia
