$5 for 5 Weekends

Transportation options between Manhattan and North Brooklyn will be limited over the next 5 weekends. Not only does this put a wrench in your brunch plans, but it causes a major disruption for local business.

Spring is a peak season for local restaurants, retailers, and galleries alike—traffic is especially heavy on the weekends. Without convenient, affordable transportation to connect patrons to businesses, their bottom lines suffer.

In an effort to connect riders with the places, people, and businesses they care about, we’re offering $5 uberPOOL rides along the L Line between Williamsburg and Manhattan for 5 weekends. We encourage you to keep those cross-borough plans, make an effort to see your long-distance friends, and support the businesses you love.
