Ordering an Uber to get around is now a no brainer, but ordering an Uber with little kids in tow is another story. Too often we are asked if children need to be in a car seat when in an Uber or Lyft (our answer is ALWAYS YES!) as it is never a simple procedure to deal with installing and unstalling (let alone carrying) car seats.
