Leeds airport to York Uber?

Hey there!

I'm traveling to York via Leeds in May and didn't know if anyone had any experience with Uber yet, and if they would travel from the airport to York? I know the 757 bus from the airport takes me to Leeds train station and from there I can get to York, but I'm now on a bit of a time crunch and didn't want to run the risk of missing buses/trains and getting that much further behind. I'm not opposed to having a private shuttle booked either, but was wondering what folks had done? Thank you!

Uber are in Leeds and the app quotes £38-50 to York, but you are probably safer booking a regular taxi based in York. Ace Taxis quote £44 - I'd be inclined to do that (others may know better firms?)

Craig's suggestion of ace taxi's is a good one. I prefer to book private taxi's rather than uber as they are licensed and in the case of ace have been around a long time.

Thank you both! I appreciate it! I'll make arrangements with Ace and take it from there!

Just an update, I was only able to book Ace for my return leg to the airport, which was a bit of luck since there was some delay in my flight arriving in Leeds. I decided to Uber it from the airport to York, and it was fast, in line with pricing with Ace and my driver was pleasant and personable!
