It's settled! Uber is here! Well, it will be in Kennewick on Dec. 15 and Pasco Dec. 20! The city regulations have changed to allow Uber and they'll be up and running soon! The day after the Kennewick launch, they'll also be launching in Yakima! Uber driver have to pass a criminal background check, have a clean driving record, and their cars have to be less than 15 years old. Also, the vehicles have to go through a third-party inspector before they can hit the road!

Yes! We can get drunk, and have a cheap ride home! Or, you know, get to work if our car breaks down. No word on how many drivers will be available the first days, but I'm hoping by New Year's Eve we'll have a LOT!
