Uber or Lyft.

Definitely uber, I used uber for the first time in October. My wife and I took an uber from the airport in Houston to a motel, then in the morning we took an uber from there to a restaurant, then to church, then to the pier for our cruise, total cost of the rides with uber was less then $63. We took a cab from the pier back to the airport, the ship was delayed and we were worried about not making our flight, cab ride was $100, it was a fixed rate set by the taxis and the pier. Uber is waaaay cheaper.

Funny enough, doesn't Uber company policy now ban their drivers from carrying a firearm?

I'm sure they don't mind if paying customers do. :getlost:

Put the unloaded pistol in case and have a FOID card.

It's not illegal for a customer to carry on an Uber, though it does violate company policy. The signs only have legal meaning on real property.

Uber can want whatever they want, but if I drove for them I'd be ready for any problems.

That's an interesting thought...

I wonder about cpz signs on ambulances as they're not real property even though they're under the authority of a unit of government.

Transporting a firearm without a car is the same as transporting one with a car. You put the unloaded gun in an enclosed case. You have a valid FOID. You carry it. The case could be a backpack, an actual gun case, a cardboard box, a tupperware container, etc.

 

You may go by taxi, train, bus, friend's car, Uber, Lyft, whatever. The only place you may not carry it on your person in this manner is in the secure area of an airport and probably some other federally-controlled properties (nuclear facilities, post office, courthouse, etc).
