So I have lived in Chicago a couple years and I can say Metromile is actually perfect for me. I use public transportation more than I did while living in the country so a lot of the time my car doesn't move.
I also drive for Uber part time and Metromile doesn't charge for those miles since Uber provides its own insurance which in my opinion makes more sense than the Rideshare plans other providers pride themselves in offering. So far those types of plans are always 200 dollars and up. Ridiculous! If I drive for Uber once in a big while, why should I pay that much for insurance. I'd have to start driving for Uber after my regular job every day to afford that.
Street cleaning notifications are great too. Sometimes I'm in a lot and not on the road in question but when I see those, I know that so I ignore that and move on.
Most of the negative reviews on here are quite outrageous and mostly seem they are made by people that just don't like the technology.
I have no experience yet with the claims process. I hope I don't have to but in the event I do, I'll write another review.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
