My First Uber Ride (as a driver)


This is a screenshot of the very first Uber ride I gave back on February 5, 2014.  There was snow outside. I was as nervous as a Pilgrim on the Mayflower. I gave a man a ride from Harvard Square to his destination about five minutes away.  My fare: $6.91.

This is also one of the first photos I took in my ride share career, the first of thousands to come. Back then, after you signed up for Uber, they sent you a specially rigged iPhone with their  app on it.  This was it: an iPhone4 as I recall. 

My Uber career had begun. Plymouth Rock, here I come.
