Uber, NFL Players Association Launch ‘Uber Rides’ Program
Uber prides itself on finding creative solutions to difficult challenges and today we’re announcing an exciting partnership with the NFL Players Association that leverages our technology platform to create a safer environment for players and their communities during the 2013-14 NFL season.
As part of this innovative alliance, every active NFL player will receive a personalized keychain card containing credits that can be used to summon a high-end ride in any of Uber’s international locations, including nearly 20 U.S. NFL team cities and Pro Bowl host Honolulu. They’ll also receive new rider gift cards for friends and family to promote responsibility to those closest to them.
The partnership underscores the NFLPA’s ongoing commitment to ensuring its members have access to safe, discreet and professional transportation when they need it and highlights Uber’s dedication to providing high-quality service to people all over the world who desire reliable rides without sacrificing style.
NFLPA Player Representatives will be sharing the details of the program with all active players during the month of September. For more information, click here to read the Uber-NFLPA press release.
