Using Uber and/or Lyft in Paris?

Jump to last reply

I'll be going to Paris for 2 weeks in mid-October. I've always used the Metro and buses extensively on my past trips (and walked miles!) and successfully avoided taxis. However, on my last trip 2 years ago
I way overdid it with the stairs etc. in Metro, standing on the crowded buses and again walking more miles in the museums. At this point in my life, (I'm 80) I think my back and feet might need more breaks than I've given them previously. I'm not at all ready to give up these great trips!

Anyway, has anyone used Uber or Lyft successfully in Paris? I live in Miami and they seem to work great here, according to friends. I have the apps registered on my phone but haven't tried a ride yet.
Of course my iPhone working in Paris might be an issue for me, but that's another matter, since I've never used a cellphone in Europe.

I'd appreciate any thoughts on this, since taxis are sometimes difficult to find in Paris when you want one. Uber shows up very fast - at least in Miami.
