Update: You are now free to Uber about the Cape (almost). Starting Friday the 24th at 4 pm, you’ll be able to request a ride. Check out the pro tips below and you’ll be cruising around in style in no time!

  • Woah! That’s a pretty big Cape: Estimated Arrival Times should average around 15 minutes, so plan accordingly.
  • Cape Pricing: Uber’s Cape Pricing mirrors our SUV pricing in Boston! $25 minimum fare, $14 base, $4.75 per mile, $1.00 a minute.
  • 4 is the Magic Number: Most of the cars on the Cape are Sedans, so please keep to 4 people per Uber.
  • Scorch and Sizzle: Be sure to use plenty of sunscreen 🙂
  • Hours of Uberation (get it!) are: 4pm-2am Fri, Sat, Sun; 12p-5pon Monday.

All Bostonians love the Cape, and if you don’t – you will soon! What’s not to love? Beachside clambakes, sailboats, boat shoes… and now Uber?!

Since we never want to miss out on the fun, Uber is headed to the Cape this summer for our first ever Cape Cod pop-up! This Memorial Day weekend, Uber will be there to whisk you from beach or cottage to dinner or drinks – and back home again at the end of the night!

To sweeten the deal, we’re working with FlipKey to give you a weekend Cape getaway compliments of FlipKey! One grand prize winner will win a weekend on the Cape – including a sick vacation house (choose from dates between June 1st and August 31st based on FlipKey availability) and a round trip black car ride for four. Five second place winners will get free rides to and from the Cape for Memorial Day Weekend, in what might be the most epic Uber ride ever… a black car stocked with nothing but the best – Pretzel Crisps snacks and refreshing Vita Coco!

Open your Uber app and enter promo code “getmetothecape” for your chance to win! Want to enter multiple times? Grab your friends and get them to sign up for Uber here and spread the word. If they win, they’ll pretty much HAVE to take you 🙂 Contest ends Wednesday, May 22nd at 8am and winner will be announced at 12pm sharp!

Keep an eye out for updates on our blog, email and Twitter.

Love + Lobsters,

The Uber Boston Team
