THERE’S sup­posed to be an app for that, as the say­ing goes, but in the US state of Michi­gan an Amish com­mu­nity has found a way to join the new econ­omy with­out go­ing dig­i­tal.

Ti­mothy Hochst­edler has launched a ser­vice he calls “Amish Uber” in which he brings the power of horse and buggy to the rideshar­ing scene, US broad­caster ABC re­ports.

“Uber is hot right now so we have the Amish Uber, we can de­liver peo­ple to their front door steps,” said Hochst­edler.

While users have em­braced the new ser­vice with en­thu­si­asm, don’t ex­pect to find it via the app - in keep­ing with Amish tra­di­tion, you’ll need to put the phone to one side and flag down the driver by hand.
