As a city of capital Yogyakarta Special Region in Java, Yogyakarta is renowned as a center of education, classical Javanese art and culture. Yogyakarta also has many great tourism destination. Have you ever come to Yogyakarta? If you haven’t, then I believe, you should put “Yogyakarta” to your next vacation.
People from many town come to Yogyakarta to study or for vacation. Motor cycle is the most popular vehicle in Yogyakarta. And this January, the good news come to Yogyakarta. After coming to Jakarta, Bali, Bandung, Surabaya and Malang, now Uber is available in Yogyakarta.
The developer describe,
Uber is a ridesharing app for fast, reliable rides in minutes—day or night. There’s no need to park or wait for a taxi or bus. With Uber, you just tap to request a ride, and it’s easy to pay with credit or cash in select cities.
Yes, with Uber, you can easily get a ride and go around Yogyakarta. So, last week, I am very happy because I have invited to Uber’s event. The event is “Blogger and Instagramers Meet Up” in a popular hotel in Yogyakarta, Agenda Resto, Rooftop Greenhost Hotel, Prawirotaman. On this event, I met a lot nice blogger and Uber team. Mr. Gia from Uber share us (the Bloggers and Instagramers) all about Uber. I am so excited!
Uber has great service and many variate ride type, such as uberX, uberXL, uberMOTOR, uberPOLL, uberBLACK and uberTRIP. But unfortunately, only uberMOTOR is available in Yogyakarta (for now). Hope the other “Uber” come to Yogyakarta. It will be fun! The other interesting information I get is that uber is cheaper than another similar application service. For 1 kilometers, you just only pay Rp 1.800! (With minimum pay Rp 5.000/order). And you can pay it cash or with credit card.
By the way, don’t worry about the service. If something bad happen while you ride with Uber, uber will give life insurance to both, rider and passenger. Psst, I tell you, the compensation is up to Rp 100.000.000. But, of course, we don’t want to something bad happen to us, aren’t we?
Uber also bring new great feature to us, they give us the pay estimation, detail information about the driver who picks us and we can easily send a message to our friends or family to update our current location. Mr. Gia told us that, NEVER takes a rider who pick you with different vehicle (different with detail in Uber). Because, it’s dangerous and Uber can’t track your trip. FYI, Uber team can track all of the trip, which is using Uber application. But the rider should use the same vehicle, which was registered in Uber apps. So, if you reserve a ride (for example) Honda Vario, AB 1234 X, and the rider pick you with Honda Vario X 4321 AB, you should CANCEL the reservation, no matter what.
With Uber in Yogyakarta, it will make us easier to look around and visit a lot great destination in this town. I suggest that you install the application because Uber has great UI, easy to use, cheap and of course the service is super great. GetUuber from your Play Store now!
