Cars ordered from one’s phone NYT Crossword clue

The NYT Mini Crossword clue “cars ordered from one’s phone” can be tricky depending on your age. I first thought it was about making a phone call to order a taxi, but it’s not. It’s something common to most people today.

You should be able to figure it out quickly if you don’t drive and think about how you ordered a car the last time you needed a ride back home. Now, here are a few hints to help you, though you will probably find a solution rather quickly with just a few hints.

  • Hint 1: We’re talking about smartphones, not old phones that could only make calls.
  • Hint 2: Today I learned The New York Times Mini allows brand names as answers.
  • Hint 3: While the clue says “cars,” it means ordering a ride, not something like renting a car.
  • Hint 4: It’s the most popular ride app in the U.S. and many other countries. Since the clue is in plural form, so is the answer.

Stop reading now if you don’t want the answer spoiled because I’m about to reveal it.

The answer to “cars ordered from one’s phone” is “UBERS.” While Uber is the name of the app, people often refer to the cars and drivers as Ubers. Since the clue is in plural form and says “cars you order,” the answer is Ubers, not Uber.
