1. Best Alexa Skills 2017: Transport
If you're a frequent Uber user, you can download the Uber Alexa skill, which once set up will quickly order your Uber via voice command. To order an UberX immediately, all you'll need to say is "Alexa ask Uber for a ride".
And while the setup is a bit tricky – and let's face it, ordering an Uber without Alexa is still very fast – this could save you a few seconds if you're an avid multitasker.
But if you prefer to travel by train, the National Rail skill will provide you with up-to-date information on train delays, line closures and other nasty commuter-related issues. And for those that use the London Underground, The Tube Status skill enables you to ask Alexa about the state of the tube lines, potentially making your journey to work a lot easier.
