UBER, the app that lets you hail a cab is now cheaper than a New York City Taxi. Take a Free Ride!
According to VentureBeat, UBER just cut their prices 20% kicking off a price war against yellow taxi's. And this lower price includes the tip, so you save even more! The typical fare will be able 1 or 2 dollars cheaper, includes the tip, and you can conveniently hail the cab where ever you are from your phone.

I assume ubertakefreeride is your personal code and awards you $30?
Jon, yes they give 1 free ride, though I can’t keep track of how much they provide in free rides if I refer someone. I know new users get a ride up to $30 if they sign up now but previously they were giving $10 to new users. Post your own referral code in the comments if you wish.
i hate uber! i referred 8 people legitimately and they took away all my credits – those bastards.
