I've used Uber and agree it is infinitely better than Swan. Not going back and I am not alone.

My experience with UBER has been excellent. I called UBER in Sydney, within 5mins, a Black and White working as an UBER turned up. Excellent service. I called UBER as I couldn't get a standard cabbie. You are right, they are working themselves out of a living.
