The ride hailing era in upstate has begun. Central New Yorkers began using Uber or Lyft to snag a ride Thursday.
Uber, the bigger of the two ride hailing operations, came to Syracuse to offer an example of how the app based ride hailing system works. Uber spokesman Sean Connor hailed a car in Armory Square.
“One of the great things about the app, it tells me the make, model and driver, so I get into the right car -- which is important,” Connor said.
