Uber saves Williamsburg from L Train FAIL
Turn your hipster frown upside down this weekend with our ‘L Train FAIL’ special! Yes, New York’s most painful train line is once again ‘taking a nap‘ and we’re ready to save you from dreaded MTA-related rage.
From Friday June 3 at 11:30pm until Monday June 6 at 5:00am, we’re discounting all rides starting or ending in Williamsburg by 15%!
Redeeming the offer is a cinch: don a plaid shirt, request a ride into or out of Williamsburg, our GPS recognizes your location, discount is automatically applied, and your perfectly-waxed moustache stays in shape.
We’re also offering an additional 5% to new riders off their first ride! So, help us spread the Uber word this weekend and get your friends to sign up by Monday June 6 at 5:00am with the code: LTRAINFAIL
Bring on the craft beers and organic goodness!
