Uber in Indy

Uber has arrived in Indy! Follow @uber_indy for updates.

If you're not familiar (although my guess is most of you are), Uber is a premium car service app that's had lots of success in SF and some other markets. You just download the app, enter your credit card info (once), and then you can summon a black car/yellow cab from anywhere. Uber is expanding with pilot programs in medium-sized markets, including Indianapolis. They just named a GM for Indianapolis, so it will be interesting to see how they approach the market here.

I'm curious to know what this group thinks of Uber's potential in Indy. The cab situation in Indy is awful. But almost everyone in Indy has a car, and Uber is slightly more expensive than a cab. Any thoughts?
