The whole sentence is The taxi-on-demand service Uber lets you snake the cab line..

And why is snake used here? Thanks!


The word snake here serves as a verb and not noun. It means that using the service of Uber, you can have a taxi-on-demand and get rid of standing in a cab line by moving through it.

More about the verb snake here.

  • Thanks Maulik, I must say at first I can't help but thinking that using snake as a verb kind of implied that one moved very slowly, (share some similarity with crawl)? .. But then I remembered how smooth the snake looks like and how smoothly it moves, and I think I've got the idea of using it in that snake the cab line context. @Maulik V – Evelyn1986 Feb 20 '14 at 6:26
