Necessity is the Mother of Invention: Amish Uber

An Amish Dad in Michigan has decided to join the rideshare economy, with his horse and buggy. According to WWMT, Tim Hochstedler has started offering taxi rides around his hometown of Colon in his horse-drawn carriage, which he has dubbed the “Amish Uber.” Horse and Buggy Rides are only $5, so this is way cheaper than most Uber rides, but there is a pretty big catch: You will have to flag him down on the street if you want a lift, since he is not using the Uber app.

According to the Oxford Dictionary, the proverb “Necessity is the mother of invention” simply means that, “When the need for something becomes imperative, one is determined to find ways of achieving it.”
