DeLorean Time Machines in San Francisco

Uber hasn’t introduced a time travel option yet, but you might see shades of 1985 when you open your app today. For this weekend only, Uber has partnered with GE to bring DeLoreans to the streets of San Francisco.

GE’s Brilliant Machines campaign uses real-world examples to demonstrate how GE’s advanced hardware and analytical software can revolutionize the way cities are powered. In other words, the GE technology in your DeLorean might predict and meet an entire city’s power needs someday (but don’t worry — these cars won’t be hitting 88 miles per hour on Market Street).

How to snag a free ride:

  • Open the Uber app anytime from noon to 9 p.m. on Friday or 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday
  • Supply will be very limited, but if your timing is right, you’ll see the DeLorean option
  • Maximum of 15 minutes per trip and one person per vehicle

Brilliant Machines are transforming the way we work, and Uber is transforming the way we ride. History is gonna change!
