I brought an unlocked phone with me and got a telcel SIM. I had set up an uber a couple of months ago at home but never had the need to use it. Now when I try to use it, I get a msg that they aren't able to complete the transaction. Someone suggested cabify so I downloaded the app and set up an acct using the Mexican phone number. However it won't accept my Canadian credit card number, something about not being able to validate it.
Anyone else have similar problems? We usually end up walking a block or 2 to find a taxi which is usually ok but sometimes not so convenient. When we leave next Sunday we will need to go to the ADO bus terminal and I'd prefer to have someone pick us up rather than wandering the street with our bags.
Alternative is to call a taxi. While we do speak some Spanish, I find it difficult on the phone.
Thanks in advance.
