Trick or Treat! Free Rides For Halloween

Ghost, ghouls, town cars, oh my! All Hallow’s Eve is approaching, it’s close to midnight, and something Uber’s lurking in the dark… Here are our Top 5 Pro Tips to ensure your ride is a treat and not a trick. 🙂

1. Split the Fare and Earn Up to FIVE free Rides!
Use Fare Split this week and we’ll treat you to a free ride (or 5) next month! Simply enter promo code: UBERTREATBMORE to your account. Then, starting today through next Sunday (Oct 25 to Nov 3), when you invite a friend new to Uber to share your ride, you’ll both get a FREE ride up to $15 in November! Fare split with up to five different new users and earn up to five rides! For Baltimore Uber users only.*

2. No Sticker Shock
There’s going to be a lot of demand, and prices for rides might be higher than normal. Surge pricing will likely be active on UberBLACK and UberSUV. But have no fear – with Fare Split you can still get an affordable ride. Our low cost option, uberX, is also in beta – try it out!

3. Nail The Pick-Up
Make sure you and your Uber find one another. Instead of dropping the pin, manually enter your address in the app—this will help the driver find your exact location. Just click on the address at the top of the screen to enter an exact one.

4. Make Sure You Don’t Get in Someone Else’s Uber!
After you request, you’ll get your driver’s name, picture, car type, and license plate number. Your driver gets your name, too. When the car rolls up, make sure your driver’s information matches what’s in the app. If it doesn’t, DON’T GET IN! It’s not a nice trick to take someone else’s ride.

5. Treat Your Driver (and Other Riders) to a Clean Car
Don’t get us wrong—we love creative costumes! Just keep the face paint and glitter off the seats. 🙂 A real mess could mean mean a driver can’t work the rest of the night, which would one less car on the road. And we all want to ensure there are safe rides for all who need them!

Now scare up a good time out there and oooOOOooober on!

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
