Uber vs. Lyft

Any preferences for use while visiting San Antonio? I've never used either, but will need to during an upcoming trip.

Thanks.

Many drivers drive for both services. I have found there to be no difference. I check both apps and choose the one nearest unless there is a significant difference in fare which is unusual.

In my experience it is six of one, half a dozen of the other.

A lot drive for both, but more drive for Uber, thus most of the time quicker to get a ride with Uber.

If I had to pick just one I would go with Uber, not better than Lyft but more drivers generally means less time waiting. Get both on your phone and let us know what your experience is.

Sometimes they can have different pricing. I've seen Uber with surge pricing while Lyft doesn't. This was in Dallas, but still....

They are virtually the same, just a matter of preference.
