Welcome to Uberlicious★NYC!

Uber sunny daySo, I’m FlyMai coming to you straight out of Brooklyn…. by way of Cali…. having lived abroad for a little bit, but genuinely loving NYC! Now that I’m just a few days shy of my first month as an Uber driver in NYC, I thought it would be cool to document some of the interesting moments of my days navigating the streets with my special passengers. To start off, I am not a “professional” driver, nor have I ever expressed interest in becoming one. I do, however, love catching taxis and hiring car service, so it provides a certain irony every time a passenger refers to me as a cab driver, though I suppose it’s semantics. But I certainly don’t think I fall under the category of taxi driver, as there are certain checks, balances and training that I imagine comes with the official title. I’m just a girl who decided a few months ago to get herself an SUV and hack license in the likelihood that a bunch of strangers — she thinks of as friends, by the way — needed her to drop them off a few places on days when she was willing to get on the road.

It was quite the whirlwind eight weeks from taking the first steps to getting my TLC license to purchasing a vehicle to opening my own business account. But, suffice it to say, I’m really glad I decided to take the gamble and try this out for a while.

More on my decision to drive Uber in my next post! Until then….. be safe out there on these mean streets of NYC! ★
