Baton Rouge (NBC33) — Uber released a statement today announcing that Baton Rouge residents can now request a ride around town using the Uber app.
Uber started four years ago and currently operates in 140 cities and 40 countries.
Although the company is increasing in popularity, it's also gotten a lot of criticism, especially from Taxi services.
An Uber spokesperson says that In Baton Rouge, fares from LSU’s campus to the Mall of Louisiana are about $8.00, and fares from Chimes to Chimes East are around $21.00.
However, Uber says that for the next two weeks, rides are only $5.00.
