Budget uber that can do better
The (still subsidised) rides on this app are cheap! This is why I use it. Is it convenient, reliable well designed? No. Not yet. Stick to uber if you really need to get somewhere ASAP.
A few points that really sound silly:
1. The app will never allow the pickup point to be where you are, it’ll make you walk a block or two even if your driver is only 2 minutes away. It often makes no sense and the car bypasses your actual location to drive to the pickup point.
2. The driver does know where they are driving. (What??? Yes!). Drivers are treated like robots and need to simply follow the instructions on the app. They cannot take shortcuts or different routes due to traffic or even road closures that the app doesn’t realise. Their routing app is not like google maps that knows about traffic, hence you are not going to be on your fastest route. I once needed to go to Victoria and the app kept on touting us to a still-stand traffic. I missed my coach and when I finally told the driver I was going to Victoria he said “I wish you told me, I could have taken a short cut”.
3. Most fellow passengers ignore the “emergencies only” phone usage rule and you are stuck into a small space forced to listen to people’s phone conversations. Something I consider very rude and annoying.
ABSOLUTE TRASH 👎
DO NOT USE AND STICK TO UBER. ViaVan drivers are rude and there’s a real issue with geolocation (what kind of cab company never picks you or drop you right where you need to be???). I took it twice with a luggage and 1- had load my heavy luggage by myself in the driver’s (very) messy booth who was then scolding me from behind his wheel for not being fast enough as he had driven past me, when I was right where I was told to go get picked up from and so he parked on a double red line. Not my fault pal 2- again drove past me I had to walk quite far to get to him (after I had called him once already to tell him he wasn’t at the right place - meanwhile my location pin was dead on the ViaVan pick up point). My paper bag broke as I was told to hurry to get to him and spilled all of its contents including liquid so I got in the car soaked. Great. And then I was told I was not waiting at the right place when I had been very careful to check and there was even a loading space so no issue to park. What a bunch of idiots. You get what you pay for DO NOT USE THIS APP. Wouldn’t be surprised if it disappeared in the next 6 months. And I hope it does.
Don’t use it
Horrible horrible horrible, if you can stick to Uber, then do.
I was introduced to this via a friend so I got a credit of £15. I was trying to use the money multiple times but it was an absolute disaster everytime I tried to. Once I had to take someone to the airport and we were really tight with time, the app kept on cancelling and ‘updating’ the rides, in the end we ended up running to the convenient place with two suitcases! After having this experience, I never even tried to book a cab when I was in rush. And even if I wasn’t, it was impossible to book a ride, I have tons of text messages saying they had to cancel, update or do whatever else with my ride.
I still had some money left which I wanted to use but it’s too much effort to even start using this app because it all ends up in using your nerve cells for no reasons. And I feel sorry for the drivers cause once I was told my driver was 2min away, I waited for 10min, called him and he said that he was told the trip was cancelled. I really don’t know how this is supposed to work, but it DOESN’T.
This is the last time I’m using this app and after a LONG hassle, I finally actually got a car and the driver is really nice. I had this app for a few months and he is the first highlight in my experience.
Honestly, if you can avoid using ViaVan, then please do. Uber is a million and one time more convenient and worst case, get a black cab or Adison Lee.
