Yooper Ooper (uber)
Yooper UBER / On Demand (“Dude, like, can you come get me right now?”)
We are a Transportation Network Company just like UbER & Lyft. You request a ride, via the internet or phone AP. We will send a driver if one is available. Yooper Ooper cannot be scheduled before noon day before service or more than 24 hours in advance.
This service is not guaranteed, it is based on driver and vehicle availability. We utilize our staff, vehicles, and equipment FIRST and FOREMOST for customers who made advance, pre-paid reservations. If we have extra drivers and vehicles available, we open it up to Yooper Ooper.
You must make your request and payment via the internet. It is a violation of Michigan State Law to take TNC requests over the phone. shop.trailspotters.com/products/upride
We strongly encourage you to make a pre-paid, reservation for a charter or one of our packages. However, we understand there may be circumstances where Yooper Ooper is your only option, for example:
You just finished your hike and need a ride back to your car
You decided the last second to hike, drove up today, just pulled your permits, and need a ride right now
You need to be rescued from the hike you are on and brought back to your car
You cannot conform to our charter schedule
