It's about time. Twice I have scheduled an early pick-up with cab companies to get to the airport: the cabs never showed and their numbers went unanswered. One resulted in missing the plane; for the other (an international flight), I got a friend out of bed and she drove me to SFO in her bathrobe! I just made the flight. It will be wonderful to have something dependable! (I trust it will be dependable.)

I had a similar experience with a taxi no-show when our family was leaving for an international vacation. At the last minute we drove and ended up paying a lot of money to park our car for two weeks. I haven't used a taxi since that experience. The major airport shuttle companies are very reliable, but they only work if you are going to/from the airport and have time for them to make many stops along the way. Uber sounds interesting.

Palo Alto to Mountain View for only $35 is such a bargain.
