At the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security.

With the craziness surrounding Lyft and Uber coming to the Capital Region in July, it’s hard to think that there’s been an upscale company that’s already been ruling that game here in the Capital Region. Looking for a safe and easy way to get to where you want to go but can’t wait until July? Look no further than Fare in Schenectady.

We’ve all been there. You want to go somewhere but you don’t want to deal with parking or gas money or maybe you intend to drink- what are you to do? We don’t have Uber and Lyft here yet and for whatever reason you don’t want to take a cab, guess you have to stay in tonight! Not true! I just learned about this great company that can help you out based right in Schenectady called Fare: Your On-Demand Driver.

A few weeks ago, I had a chance to check out some of the cars they use as well as some of their security measures and I was incredibly impressed. The cars look incredibly classy but are cheaper than renting out a limo for one night for all of your friends. My favorite part is that you don’t have to know exactly how long you’re going to stay somewhere, all you do is give a call up to one hour before you intend to leave and they’ll be right there ready to pick you up.

These kinds of services scare you a bit? Don’t worry about Fare! Every car has a camera facing the inside of the car as well as a dashcam looking outside so you’re protected no matter what. Each car also has a GPS installed which are constantly monitored. Also, if you’re like me, you’d rather not have to call a number. For whatever reason, it just seems like way too much of a hassle. Fare has you covered. Each reservation can be made online! You honestly can’t get any easier than that.

Yes, sure, Uber and Lyft are coming to the Capital Region and you can wait until July but the difference I saw with Fare was the protection. You’re safe, you arrive in a luxury vehicle for a cheaper price and you don’t have to worry about finding an Uber to pick you up when you need them to on a busy night, Fare already has you covered. Take a look, give them a try and be the one to tell your friends about this great business before driving keeps them inside from another girls’ night again!

I hope to take a ride in a Fare car soon so keep a look-out for that in the near future!
