Over the last few months, I have been transitioning my work commute to Uber. Uber is offering me an incentive that decreases my daily, round trip, work commute by $1.00 vs. me using public transportation. When taking into account my work hours being outside of rush hour and the tranquility of someone willfully picking me up and dropping me off door to door, I am test driving the luxurious future that innovation can offer us.
