Utilizing his horse and buggy, Hochstedler is calling the service Amish Uber.
Of course, Hochstedler doesn’t actually work for Uber, and there is no app to secure a ride in his buggy. Wannabe riders must flag down the carriage in the street, similar to hailing a taxi cab in New York City, except of course, there’s just one Amish Uber at the moment.
The app-free “Uber” also means there’s no online rating system, and, perhaps most crucially, no surge pricing.
For just $5, Hochstedler will get you where you need to go in Magic Town.
Early word on the streets is good: “People are loving it,” Local 21 News reports.
It’s just one more piece to add to the village’s charm.
Uber has not yet responded to request for comment.
