Can we get a discount code for our Holiday Party?

This year we’ve created a unique Holiday Party package perfect for every occasion. We won’t have discount codes available, but you will be able to choose from the following options via THIS form:

What is Uber for Business?

Uber for Business is a dedicated platform with a single payment source shared across all employees, guests, clients, etc. – think of it as a “house” account. Now, when employees travel for work, they can quickly connect with safe, reliable rides that are automatically billed to the company. No more expense reports to submit and approve. No one waiting to get reimbursed. And 100% transparency into how the company moves via the business dashboard. It’s the same Uber you know and love, now for business. You can even invite clients, guests, VIPs, etc. to temporarily join your U4B account. If interested please signup here.
