Uber has superior features in every aspect. Uber provides its service to over 66 countries and 545 cities. The Uber app facilitates the auto fare calculation and transfers the payment to the driver.

Uber prices are the premium that the customers pay for a cab service that is reliable, punctual and comfortable.
