    COLON, Michigan — Colon Michigan's newest taxi service has four wheels, four legs and good gas mileage.


    Timothy Hochstedler is adding some horsepower to ride sharing, with his horse and buggy. He spoke with WWMT, and said he calls it Amish Uber.

    "Uber is a cool thing, every single year something new comes in and Uber is hot right now so we have the Amish Uber we can deliver people to their front door steps," said Hochstedler.


    And so far, people are loving it.

    "First time Ubering and we're riding in a buggy," said Steve Phelps, an Amish Uber rider.

    Bruce Jordan and his grandkids took a ride after traveling from Grand Rapids.

    "It was fascinating. It's not an activity you typically associate with the Amish," said Amish Uber rider Bruce Jordan.

    Plus, his engine has a lot more character as it has four legs. Hochstedler said his horse his "engine." He even commented on how his horse is very friendly, "He loves people. He's a Morgan. A Morgan is a people's horse they love giving you a kiss or whatever."

    So if you're ever in Colon, Michigan, keep an eye out for Hochstedler's Amish Uber. To get a ride you have to flag him down without a cellphone.

    Snowflakes won’t tolerate 30-60 minutes to pickup even though he’s around the corner.

    No air conditioning. No thanks.

    I’m guessing asking him for aux cable is out of the question also.

    When they ask for drive thru at least you got an excuse to say no.

    UBER might go after him over a copyright infringement.

    Juan has already beaten him to market...
    If the passenger doesn't tip... oops my horse didn't mean to kick you.
    This guy is smarter than the Orl drivers driving their vehicles in to the ground for .52 per mile

    There’s nothing “Uber” about this but okay. Just add Uber to anything. I took an UberPoop just now.
