- Easy Taxi, a Cabify app
- InDriver: Offer your fare
- Gett - Worldwide Ground Travel
- Via: Low-Cost Ride-Sharing
Uber is incredibly easy to use, available all over, and competitively priced. You can save money by sharing a ride using UberPOOL. At the other end of the spectrum, you can get a fancy car for a special night out with the high-end UberBLACK.
It's always good to have a couple of ridesharing app options on your phone, in case one has limited availability or just to compare prices. Lyft tends to be a little cheaper than Uber.
Lyft is Uber's biggest competitor, and you might find prices to be slightly lower in some places.
Easy Taxi, a Cabify app
Easy Taxi, a Cabify app lets you book either a car or a taxi (or even a scooter, though perhaps not for St. Patrick's Day) from the same app. You'll get a variety of prices and services to choose from right within the app.
InDriver: Offer your fare
In the mood to bargain? You choose the price you're willing to pay up front, your point A and point B, and then choose from a list of drivers. By negotiating directly with the drivers this way, you can save some money.
InDriver puts you in the driver's seat, so to speak. Decide your own fare and get home safely.
Gett - Worldwide Ground Travel
Gett is coming after Uber and Lyft with its global appeal. You can hail a cab, order a car, or book a limousine all over the world. This app is aimed more at world travelers than St. Patrick's Day partiers, but it's a good app to have.
Via: Low-Cost Ride-Sharing
Save some money by booking a ride with Via; it works a bit differently. Rather than picking you up and dropping you off at a specific location, each car has set routes. So, you may have to walk a bit to your pickup and dropoff spots. Via is only available in select cities.
Pick a ride, any ride
Seriously, just don't drive when you've had a few. It's so easy to book a car service so you can ride home worry-free. You can choose from a variety of price points, depending on whether you're more interested in luxury and convenience or saving some money. Any way you go, by hiring yourself a "designated driver," you're freeing yourself up to just enjoy the evening. Let us know in the comments which your favorite ridesharing service is.

With the corona virus spread going on ant the attempt to dampen the spread rate, going into a car with others is not a very good choice!
People will do it until the government bans it
