Explore the Bronx This Weekend

More and more New Yorkers are using Uber to get around the outer boroughs. In fact, 26% of all rides taken in 2014 were trips to, from, or within the outer boroughs. A significant part of that growth can be attributed to the Bronx, where we’ve seen a 700% increase in both pickups and dropoffs since 2011.

We’re proud to be connecting so many New Yorkers to this vibrant and flourishing area, and we encourage even more to travel there this weekend as we celebrate Bronx Week.


Enter promo code BRONXWEEK and enjoy 2 free rides* to, from, or within the Bronx this weekend.
