Amish man starts ‘Uber’ service with his buggy

Amish man starts ‘Uber’ service with his buggy

The newest taxi service in Colon has four wheels, four legs, and good gas mileage.

According to WWMT, Timothy Hochstedler likes to call it 'Amish Uber'. "We can deliver people to their front doorsteps", Hochstedler said.

No vehicle? No problem for Hochstedler.

"It was's not an activity you typically associate with the Amish", Jordan said. A Morgan is a people's horse. Hochstedler said his driving partner is great with people.

At $5 a ride, the service is already a big hit.

Fears of Virginia dam failing lead to evacuations
A flash flood warning has been issued and residents in the area have been told to move to higher ground immediately. The Lynchburg Sheriff's Office has opened an area auditorium for evacuees - including pets - to spend the night.

"I don't think there's Uber down here, so it's pretty cool", said Becky Phelps. "It gives people that option that can't drive or don't want to drive or shouldn't drive".

Not only that, upon the horse and buggy, visitors get the chance to experience Colon without the constant distractions of driving a auto. "They love giving you a kiss or whatever".

Hochstedler is a friend to everyone who has found a way to share through a ride. To ride in the Amish Uber, you must flag the driver down without using your cell phone.

Hochstedler is reportedly just calling himself an Uber and not actually affiliated with the company.
