Ubers/taxi/car service

Hi there--we'll be there in a few weeks with a group of 8-10 over the weekend. We're staying at a house in the area but will need transportation into town; wondering if it's worth renting an hourly car service for the evening or if there are enough uber/lyft/taxi cars in the area? Thanks!

Where are you actually staying at? Some places are remote and lack cell service. Also where are you trying to go?

Hi--We're staying near Rio Nido and are planning to go to downtown Guerneville, maybe Stumptown and maybe Korbel. Very short distances, which is why a driver seems like overkill, but I also wonder about wait time around there for 2 cars if we use uber/lyft? Thanks for the help!

Probably a long wait time since drivers typically aren't anywhere near that area. Let me ask you this, are all of you in the group coming in 1 big van? You could always a hire a driver to drive you in your rental car if it's big enough for all of you? Might be $200 for the day, you could also always just call a cab company, they would be more than willing to do it and will be there at a prompt time.

Thanks. No, we'll have a few separate cars. I think we'll just reorganize the days and use designated drivers or cabs. Thanks for your help!

Sure, Rio Nido is so close to all the spots you want to visit, only a mile or two away

Since you'll be needing a car every day I would just rent a van. Parking is very easy in town.

I'm in Guerneville now. In the morning no Uber cars were available. And the Lyft app said it wasn't active in this area.
