When is it acceptable to take an Uber to class?

Disclaimer: This is not endorsed by Uber. The sun rages as an uncomfortable dampness spreads across your back. You’re patiently waiting for the 51B to take you to campus, but once again, you’re disappointed by the frequent delays of AC Transit. Do you risk being late to class yet again or
