Amish man launches horse and buggy ‘Uber’ service

U.S. & World

A Michigan man is putting a new spin on popular ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft.

Instead of picking customers up in a car or truck, Timothy Hochstedler gives people a ride with his horse and buggy.

He calls his service Amish Uber.

“Uber is a cool thing, every single year something new comes in and Uber is hot right now, so we have the Amish Uber. We can deliver people to their front doorsteps,” Hochstedler told CNN affiliate WWMT.

Hochstedler charges $5 for a ride. You also have to flag him down to catch a ride instead of using a cell phone to order one.
