Uber Offers a Unique Perspective on Dealing with Traffic Congestion

I saw this one coming. I really did. With traffic congestion in cities like Shangai and Kunming transforming streets into parking lots the answer to the congestion had to be the air.

Unfortunately for me, Uber the new age transportation guru has the resources and connections to beat me to the market with this one.

Enter Uber Chopper service.

Uber Chopper, provides helicopter service from one area to another. It’s not quite as convenient as Uber’s traditional service, in that it can’t pick you up just anywhere, but it’s hard to beat the views — and no traffic!

The helicopter ride also comes with a chauffeured limo to get you to your final destination. A 30-minute ride will cost you 3,000 yuan per person — about $484.

The market that the service is aimed at won’t have a problem with the pricing. I’m thinking CEO’s politicians, and business owners that need an impromptu jaunt across the mere mortals creeping along on the streets at a snail’s pace.

Okay Uber has that one. Hmm … I’m thinking chopper rides for prom attendees. I’m thinking GoFundme.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
