    "Uber is the original and the leader in ride sharing. The app is incredibly easy to use and they often will send you coupons to use. The app is intuitive, finding a driver is fast and easy, and paying through the app is great."

    "Zipcar is a great solution to avoid expensive rental car fees and I think it's less expensive than other rideshare services. I also like that I'm fully in control of the car, rather than being driven around by somebody else. So I can use it for all my errands, even the last minute ones I think of, without being charged more for adding on destinations. "

    "It's a bit deceptive to call this a ride sharing app, since you find the car and drive it yourself, but there are not really other apps like it. Navigating and finding the vehicles takes an extremely long time, so it was rough for me to find or reserve anything before it got snatched up by someone else. I will wait to use this again when it gets updated more."

    "I'm a bit of a planner, and it's a good thing I am. Setting up my first reservation wasn't seamless, as there is a delay with Maven verifying your license. Other than that, I had no issues. The car was clean and ready when it was supposed to be, and Maven covers the gas. If it is available in your area, definitely give it a shot."
