Taxi vs. Uber? FOX19 NOW puts the pair to the test

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

With thousands converging to Cincinnati for All-Star festivities many are wondering what is the best way to get around.

FOX19 NOW's Hagit Limor and Jessica Brown put Uber and a taxi cab to the test.

Jessica and Hagit went on three trips: FOX19 NOW Studios to the Starbucks at the Florence Mall, Starbucks to the Holy Grail at The Banks and finally to P.F. Changs at Rookwood Pavilon.

Every trip the Uber got to Hagit before the taxi arrived to pick up Jessica, and the Uber was cheaper.

FOX19 NOW did test the system during the middle of the day without any of Uber's surge pricing.
