A luxury car service called Uber that was originally founded in San Francisco and has since expanded to other US cities is now looking to enter the global market.
Uber is a luxury car service that is growing in popularity as it continues to appeal to users who find it hard to grab a cab at late hours in the evening/early morning. Founded in 2010 by Kalanick Garrett Camp, CEO of StumbleUpon and Oscar Salazar, CEO of CitiVox, Uber has already launched in Paris and Toronto and is now looking to debut in London just in time for the Summer Olympics. In the U.S, Uber is already in San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, New York and Washington, D.C.
Eventually, the executives plan to expand through North America, Europe and Asia, bringing the convenience so many have already experienced to even more potential customers.
Uber works because it’s simple and convenient. If you need a car service to pick you up, all you have to do is push a button on your smart phone and you will be notified of the progress of your ride as its on its way to you. The company contracts with local limo services and cars generally arrive within 10 minutes of contacting them. To pay, you don’t even need to scramble for cash – your pre-registered credit card will simply be charged the total, including tip.
