To the Minute Wedding Day Transportation for Your Guests
Finally, a wedding detail you don’t have to plan ahead for. Want foolproof transportation for your guests fast? There’s an app for that.
You’ve arranged the vintage white Rolls Royce for your wedding day transportation and booked a party van to ferry your guests from the church to your reception site. But what about the last-minute transport you need for your tipsy college roommate after too much midday Champers at your bridal shower? Or the sleepy-looking great aunt that plans to drive a bit too far after she leaves your reception at 2 am?
Yes, you can “summon a fancy black car in about five minutes, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” says Josh Mohrer, the GM of Uber NYC. “Simply push a button on your app and a car will come get you.”
In the past, there may not have been a stylish exit for these typical scenarios. Not anymore. Now there’s Uber, a new nationwide car service that’s revolutionizing the livery service as “everyone’s private driver.” With a few taps on an iPhone or Android app or a mere text message, you can hire a last-minute luxury car to come to your door in minutes.
Here’s why you’ll want to pick this DIY over, er, a cousin’s DUI on your Big Day.
Yes, you can “summon a fancy black car in about five minutes, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” says Josh Mohrer, the GM of Uber NYC. There’s no requirement to plan ahead or guarantee a three-hour minimum (a usual requirement for booking fancy cars for special occasions). “When you’re ready to go, you simply push a button on your app and a car will come get you.” Not bad for a service that is no more than twice the price of a regular taxi ride.
When your brain can’t handle one more iota of wedding-related info, it’s a relief to know this on-demand service makes it so simple to hire a car ASAP. Just sign up for the free app on the site, enter your credit card info and from then on it’s as simple as a tap on a screen or a text message. (You just text your pick-up address to UBR-CAB, aka 827-222).
