For the past few months I’ve been using Sidecar whenever I’m in SF. The service is a sort of Uber meets Gypsy cabs, allowing ordering on-demand everyday drivers, who will give you a ride across town at a price comparable or slightly cheaper than a Taxi.
A post about the service’s legal standing is probably worthwhile but not for me to write. Should you use Sidecar? Yes, if you’re looking for Uber-like service at Taxi-like prices and aren’t made uncomfortable by just how sketchy the whole thing feels. The service is invite-only for now, but if you’re in SF: here, have an invite (and 10 bucks).
