Summertime and the riding’s easy (and free!)
Newport… Your FREE Uber is Arriving Now!
Warmer days and fun-filled nights are finally here. We won’t let a safe ride stand between you and a summer of fun, so we expanded our reliable coverage area to include your favorite summer destinations like Newport and Narragansett.
Whether you’re headed to dinner on the water, a backyard BBQ, or a night out on Thames, Uber has you covered. We’re not the old-fashioned designated ride home you grew up with – just press a button and let us whisk you away to wherever your heart desires in a sweet ride.
In celebration of this expansion, Uber is FREE in Newport this weekend. That’s right, from 9am on 6/6 to 6pm on Sunday, 6/8, we’re giving 2 free rides to everyone in Newport (each ride up to $20 in value).

#RISUMMER is on – open your app and order up!
Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
