St. Patrick’s Day Pro Tips

Chicago’s favorite weekend is finally here! From the parade to the after parties, we’re here to provide safe reliable rides all St. Patrick’s Day weekend long.

Check out our best pro tips to riding this St. Paddy’s Day:


PRO TIP #1: UBER IS DESIGNED WITH SAFETY IN MIND

We are committed to the safety of everyone using Uber.  Our technology is designed to bring accountability and transparency to every ride so you can always feel safe taking an Uber.


PRO TIP #2: UNDERSTANDING SURGE PRICING

During times when demand for rides outstrips the number of cars available, surge pricing will automatically go into effect to encourage more drivers to get out on the road. As demand goes down and more cars free up, the rates will go back to normal.


PRO TIP #3: FARE SPLITTING = FAIR SPLITTING

Splitting the pub tab at the end of the night can be complicating. Sharing the ride home isn’t.


PRO TIP #4: THE PERFECT PICKUP

Make sure your pickup is smooth, even after a few green beers.


PRO TIP #5: RIDER ETIQUETTE

Don’t be that guy/gal. Respect your Uber.


Get decked out in green, do a little jig, and leave the rest to us.

Sláinte!
