Uber acts similar to a taxi service, but riders locate rides through an Uber app on their smartphones. Uber-trained drivers in the area will be notified of the request and a driver will arrive to pick up the rider(s). All cost transactions are completed through the Uber app.
Once the service is officially up-and-running on May 27, rides can be obtained 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including to and from the Harrisburg and Baltimore airports as well as the Harrisburg Amtrak station.
Allan Junggust, an Uber driver, recently reached out to Destination Gettysburg in an effort to make sure that members and visitors themselves are aware of the service and how to maximize the opportunities, especially on busy event weekends.
Limited Uber service will begin on May 16th at 8 a.m. Users looking for rides during this time, should post a ride request to Uber of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Facebook page or text Allan Junggust directly at (717) 688-5653. Riders, even during this time will need to download the Uber app onto their phones.
Allan is available to help members of Destination Gettysburg understand Uber so that they may best help their customers utilize the ride-sharing service. Contact Allan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
