UBER: Ridesharing Arrives in Hopkins County

Uber, the original ridesharing service, began 8 years ago. The initial service areas were confined to the largest urban areas for obvious reasons. Residents of Hunt County have had Uber for several months now, but until this week the service ended at the Hopkins County line.

KSST Radio can verify that at least 1 Uber driver is registered and accepting clients in Hopkins County.  The first Uber fare in Hopkins County was a round trip from the Best Western Hotel, to the Downtown Dining District.  Three businessmen traveling from Arkansas to Grapevine, TX made and overnight stop in Sulphur Springs, TX.  They were thankful to have the service, one mentioned that Uber probably saves lives by preventing drunk driving.

It’s easy to get an Uber ride, just download the Uber app to your smart phone. After you create an account and link up a credit card, you are ready to go. You may even qualify for a first ride discount, or possibly a free ride to help welcome you to the service.

Folks landing at SLR will now have the chance to visit all areas of Sulphur Springs. And people wanting a ride to DFW can use Uber to get there.

Senior Citizens who can’t drive now have another option to get out and around.
