Uber has been a lifesaver for so many of people since its launch back in 2009. The app offers a quick and efficient way to get where you need to go if you don't have a car, you're unable to drive or you just don't feel like driving.

But Uber has been in some hot water lately after multiple employees have stepped forward with sexism allegations against the tech company. Naturally, many Uber users are majorly put off by this news, so they're switching car service companies altogether.
Luckily, there are some really great alternative car service apps to choose from. So if you're over Uber, check out this list of options.
You've probably seen the pink mustaches affixed to the front of cars around town. The trademark mustaches have recently been replaced with a brightly colored, Bluetooth-enabled, LED gadget called the Amp, but the mustaches certainly left their mark.
Lyft operates in 300 cities throughout the U.S., and it works just like Uber. Before you take your first ride, you set up your payment in the app to get automatically charged when you're dropped off at your destination. You don't even need to worry about having cash for a tip — it's all done via the app. Available on iOS and Android.
Juno is located in New York City and operates the same as Lyft and Uber. Enter your pick-up and drop-off address and choose from three car types: Bliss, Lux, and SUV. You can put in a special request if you need assistance or want a "quiet ride" (we've all been there).
You've probably used, or have at least heard of Waze — the traffic app that takes you from point A to point B in the shortest time possible. It's magic, really. Waze is testing out a carpooling program in the Bay Area that allows you to schedule a ride and be paired with a fellow commuter headed in the same direction.
Available in New York City, Chicago and Washington D.C., Via is another ride-sharing app. Enter your pick-up and drop-off locations, and you'll be given a nearby corner to meet your car.
Via charges flat fares with no surge pricing, making the rides affordable. On weekdays, you'll pay $5 in NYC, $3.95 in Chicago and $2.95 in D.C. You can also sign up for 7-day or 30-day unlimited rides with a Via Pass. Available on iOS and Android.
With Gett, you get(t) four car options — standard, deal, premium, and SUV and a "pool" option. You earn loyalty points by riding with Gett, which eventually leads to getting you a five-star driver.
Gett is only available in one city in the U.S. — NYC. But it's popular in over 100 cities around the world. So it's the perfect app to download before you take off on a trip overseas. Available on iOS and Android.
