What Kind of Uber Rider Are You + My First Uber Ride

What Kind of Uber Rider Are You Year with Uber

I might have said it a million times, but putting it on the blog as well - I wouldn't know how I would survive without Uber. I have relied on the app since it was first launched in 2014. 
I remember loving the concept so much and convincing people/friends to use it (with my uber code: uberruthilicious!).  I love the convenience and safety it gives whenever I go out and battle the traffic of Manila. 

Throwback to 2014, here are photos from my first Uber Ride with Sarah and Ana

Since that first ride, I relied on Uber to go around Manila and/or different cities when I am traveling. 

Last Wednesday,  I joined Uber as it celebrates #YearwithUber Event. 

Riders can now create their own personalized music video based his/her stats starring in his/her own Uber archetype! Check out the seven types and see which one you may fall under.

The Explorer
For you, Uber isn’t just a way to get around your home base — it’s how you traverse the world.
You take in the new sights, sounds, and scents of new cities through the best way you know
how. As The Explorer, you’ve visited many cities, and you’ve used Uber in each one to get to
your destination. Exploring is a breeze for you with an Uber car, whichever part of the globe you
find yourself in.

The Lux Rider
Getting to your location safely and efficiently is one thing; arriving consistently in style is
another. The Lux Rider has a penchant for the finer things in life — including luxury rides.
You’ve constantly relied on Uber Black for your journeys, and you know that a trip is never
complete without a premium car to cruise in.

The All Star Hero
If there’s somewhere you need to be, who else are you going to call? As the High-Trip Hero,
you’ve taken a high number of rides with Uber. No matter what time of the day or situation, rain
or shine, you’ve counted on Uber multiple times to get to where you want and need to go. In the
busy streets of Manila, Uber has become your go-to for whenever you need a ride.

The Road Tripper
For someone fond of road trips, it’s not just the destination that counts, but the journey taken.
You’ve truly gone the distance on your journeys with Uber — very long distances, in fact. The
Road Tripper has accumulated a very high total distance traveled, so much that they spend
majority of their day in an Uber car. We’ve loved having you along for the ride, too.

The Night Rider
Darkness is your friend and gives you comfort. As most people are just about to end their day,
yours is just getting started. The Night Rider has taken most Uber trips after the sun has set.
Whether for your nocturnal adventures or graveyard shifts, we’ve been there to take you
through the night.

The Early Bird
As soon as the sun peeps on the horizon, we arrive on your doorstep like clockwork. This year,
you’ve started most of your days with Uber, taking you where you’re needed for the day. As The
Early Bird, you’ve taken most morning trips with Uber, beginning each new day with a reliable

The Midday Wanderer
Rush hour? Traffic? These words mean nothing to you, or you are at least unfazed by the
metro’s midday bustle. As The Midday Wanderer, most of your Uber trips are taken during the
afternoon, as you thrive on the energy of the city at its liveliest.

After connecting my account to the app, I found out I am a Road Tripper! Yeah, basically I spend most of my day inside an Uber car (stuck in traffic?). Thankfully, there's Uber that has become my second home whenever I go to events, meetings, do errands or head to airport. 

The video is really cool with funky characters and catchy tune! Here are some of my Uber Figures

I rode total 2901 km
I took 234 rides
I booked a ride during New Year's Day 
Most of my rides are in the afternoon
The longest distance I traveled is 31 km in Manila
