‘So, how long have you been driving for?’ If you’ve ever caught a ride with Uber, then I’m sure you’ve asked your driver this question at some point on the journey.

It’s Sofar so good!

February 12th, 2019|Community, Experience, Spaces|

Most days at about 2:30pm, your favourite coffee house is winding down for the day. The chairs are stacked, the mop is out and staff are getting ready to check out.
