Free Über rides

As much as I dislike Über, my partner decided she would try it. After 30 minutes (including setting up a Gmail, which neither of us wants), neither of us can figure it out. But there is a bonus: a credit card has been loaded, but not by us. It insists we live next door. Up shot: we can steal rides from our neighbour (not that we would).
