... and we can't pay cash ... and it is illegal no ? Can anybody confirmed as I would not like to put my credit card on it ... or debit card.

 

Anyway, I don't use it or need it ...for now ...but I heard that in Bangkok, Uber, Grab and other are working quite efficiently.

 

Ph.

Uber was actually on a Original Thaivisa Youtube post

Maybe it has to be posted on a major newspaper or from the Government

i am not sure how this can be verified anymore here

Y anyone would use Uber rather than a tuk-tuk is beyond me.  Go local, that's my motto.  But if you live far from the city, can't speak Thai, have no personal wheels, perhaps Uber is of some value.  

Well, i'm a Luddite regardless.  Have no smartphone so I'm 'out of the loop'.

DELETED. (by me)

 

 I'll be debating the good things and challenges with Uber elsewhere.

Yes..., certainly, many things are beyond some people. Fortunately these days..., different people are free to make different free choices. Personally I'm happy to have more transport choices..., just another horses for courses situation. Welcome to personal democracy.:wai:

I have used the normal Taxi Service over the last 6 months

the price has dropped

So maybe we can expect not so much higher prices

i agree i see so many Tuk Tuk drivers and their driving

plus the prices used for a Songtaew  are rediculous

For a small price be driven in a vehicle that has protection and most important Air-conditioning

off to a bad start.  signed up for uber, installed app on mobile phone.  provided phone number, credit card information.

ready to order a ride.  Uber wants to verify my phone, will send verification text (SMS) to my phone.  No code received after 3 tries.

Unable to proceed.  Is there a local phone to call?  Anyone else have similar experience?
