Uber and Lyft can be used right off your cell phone. It will take some getting used to.  

To use the service, download the free app to your phone and type in where you want to go.  

Once you accept the ride, you'll see an icon of a vehicle heading toward your location. It will show you a photo of the driver- and the make, model, and color of their car.

There are already over 1,000 registered Uber drivers in Rochester alone.
