Try u2u message to 'BajaGringo' here or if you Facebook, to Ron at TalkBaja. He lives in the San Quintin area. https://www.facebook.com/TalkBajaMexico/

I don't recall anyone talking about Uber in Mexico before?

Uber is in many major Mexican cities. A friend just used one to get to the TJ airport from another spot in TJ the other day.

I sort of doubt San Quintin though.

Uber drivers going Darunter


Interesting article in today's (Sunday) L.A. Times regarding many Uber drivers in the U.S. going broke. The better their business, the broker they get.

It's hard to imagine so many (reasonably intelligent) people getting into something like that without doing fairly elemental research into what their overhead would be.

I'm reminded of the story (years ago) regarding a photofinishing business in Hollywood that found they were spending $1.10 for every dollar earned. Business got so good over the Christmas holiday that they went broke.

Uber has not yet made it here to San Quintin although there is a growing group of locals here trying to make it happen. In the meantime, if you have a trip planned down here and just need some help with logistics, message me and I'll see if I can't hook you up with a workable solution...

Maybe it's just a matter of time. I just got back from Hong Kong and New Zealand where we used Uber.

I LOVE Uber !

I am a avid traveler and as such have had to deal with the rip off taxi's in most countries..
It is such a relief to not have to deal with those scumbags anymore...

I was in Guadalajara a few years ago when all the taxi's did a protest of Uber, they had hundreds of taxi's park and block the main roads downtown. There were sort of riots also.

A lot of good it did as Uber is still going strong and expanding....
The taxi service worldwide needed a revamping...
