Michigan Man Launches “Amish Uber” Service
: American ingenuity in small-town America
In case you missed it, the small town of Colon[[COH-lon]], Michigan isn’t “on the map” enough for Uber, but that doesn’t matter to Timothy Hochstedler [[hoke-STED-ler]]. After all, he’s got a horse and buggy…and if you wave him down, he’ll be happy to give you a lift for $5.
"Uber is a cool thing,” say Hochstedler. “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 door steps. But as you might’ve caught – there’s no app to order your ride. You just have to flag him down.
Riders, of course, see Hochstedler’s service as a great way to see the town without distractions…but say it’s just fun – and helps the community. As rider Becky Phelpsnotes, “It gives people that option that can't drive or don't want to drive or shouldn't drive.”
