In a small village in Michigan, you can catch a ride in the "Amish Uber."
This new-fangled horse-and-buggy ride service was started by Timothy Hochstedler, a resident of Colon, Michigan.
"Uber is a cool thing, every single year something new comes in and Uber is hot right now, so we have the Amish Uber. We can deliver people to their front door steps," Hochstedler said.
