When I arrived in Chicago, it was nearly 9:00 p.m., so instead of taking the train to my hotel, I decided to take a cab. It's just too scary on the train that late, plus the streets of downtown. The cab is totally the way to go. The cabbie asked me if I wanted to do a ride share. It's where it costs you $19 to get to downtown instead of $45. So I said yes. The cabbie makes more money this way too because he gets three people at $19, which is more than one person's $45.
