    It's no secret that Uber is my one of my favorite innovations for ground transportation. When public transportation in a city isn’t good, I used to get really frustrated by the lack of options and taxi “mafias,” though fortunately Uber has solved that problem in many cities. Uber Black is the “standard” service and a bit more than a taxi, while they also have UberX, which is usually cheaper than a taxi.

The cost is a bit higher than what you'd pay for a taxi (though flat rates from airports can be a steal, especially internationally), but for that additional fee you're getting a nicer vehicle, GPS tracking, and the convenience of paying through the app. UberX, however, is another story.
