Uber launched service in Providence last month to provide residents and visitors with access to reliable, efficient and – best of all – affordable transportation, whenever and wherever they want. But now affordable transportation in Rhode Island is in serious jeopardy: the state is about to implement a $40 minimum on any sedan trip, no matter how short the trip – effectively eliminating transportation options like Uber from the marketplace.
This weekend, Providence will play host to a very special Waterfire celebration – “Flames of Hope”. In conjunction with the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, this weekend’s Waterfire will generate awareness and celebrate the lives of those affected by breast cancer. Join us as we turn Providence pink – we’re giving new users a free ride to join the celebration!
