Dear Taipei,

I have a little secret to share – despite teetering on the edge of thirty years old, still don’t know how to drive.

Whenever I mention this fact to anyone here, they immediately assume I just can’t drive in Taiwan. Many a conversation has panned out like this:

Friend: “Ah, I miss being able to drive, don’t you?”
Me: “Erm, well, I can’t drive…”
Friend: “Yeah, I don’t have my international license either.”
Me: No, I can’t drive anywhere. I don’t have a license in Australia either.

“…Say whaaat?”

I do realise that in order to call myself a fully-functioning adult I should be able to drive by now, but alas, I haven’t still haven’t learned how.

So how do I get around here in Taipei? When I don’t want to spend 40 minutes on public transport to get to a place that’s only 8 minutes by car, or I don’t want to spend a ton on a taxi, I’ll just use an Uber. Which brings me to the whole point of this post…

TypingToTaipei is excited to provide Uber exclusive discount codes for TTT readers who are first time users. (Of course, you can share the codes with your friend and family too!)

Why try it?

We’ve all been faced with a situation where we need to get somewhere fast, or don’t know how to get there ourselves. (Or maybe you still don’t know how to drive… yeah, that’s only me…)

In my experience, Uber is usually a lot cheaper than catching a taxi, and the service is really great. I honestly can say that I’ve only ever had great rides with friendly and professional drivers.

If you haven’t used Uber before, why not give it a shot? With the discount code, you may be able to score yourself a free trip depending on how far you’re going – or at least a discounted one!

Happy riding!
