How to reduce the costs of travelling by taxi up to 30%?
The solution is Uber. Uber is a company which connects the clients, who want to take a ride somewhere, with the drivers, who have a car and some free time and want to make some money. Uber app is available for all platforms and can be downloaded from Google Play, AppStore or Microsoft.

The idea was born in France where two American entrepreneurs went on a conference and noticed that there is a problem to call a taxi because there are not enough taxis for the whole city. So they came up with an idea to create an app through which you will be able to call a private person who will give us a lift. They came back to San Francisco, California and created the application which is now well-known around the world and is available for its clients in 468 cities around the world.
