Returning from my recent trip to Issaquah, WA, I wanted a taxi from the hotel to the Amtrak station in Seattle. The hotel clerk told me that taxis weren’t vary reliable in Issaquah and called me an Uber instead. The driver showed up within five minutes or so, and it was less expensive than a taxi would have been; so I guess this old dude needs to get with the program.
I checked out the websites for both Uber and Lyft, and it looks like you can’t use either one except through a cell phone which I find annoying, principally because of the difficulty of typing readable text on the phone’s make-believe keyboard. I’m also guessing that you can’t pay with a credit card but need to set up some kind of PayPal account or something.
Can anybody suggest any alternatives to Uber and Lyft? Or maybe explain to this old fart why it’s not as difficult as he thinks it is?
