Ride in style to NYFW S14

September is here. It’s that time again when editors, trendsetters, and fashionistas alike flood the city, in anticipation of the newest season in fashion. If you’re headed to Lincoln Center to join in the revelry of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, follow our tips to ensure a smooth ride with Uber.

WHERE SHOULD I REQUEST A PICKUP The Roslyn and Elliot Jaffe Family Drive between Broadway and West 65th Street  and West 62nd is the best spot for a pickup. Drop your pin along Columbus Avenue and coordinate with your driver for a seamless pickup. In the Uber app you can contact your driver, and check his/her name, car type and license plate before getting in.

WHEN SHOULD I REQUEST Open the Uber app about 10 – 15 minutes before you need to be picked up. You’ll be able to see the closest drivers, and request to fit your schedule.

Fashion forward friends in need of a ride? If they sign up and ride during fashion week (9/5 – 9/12) with promo code NYFWS14, they’ll receive $20 off their first ride with Uber.


Curious as to where you can find Uber NYC team throughout the week? Keep an eye out at some of our top picks:

Kimiko (Community) – “I’m in love with all of Clover Canyon‘s fun, colorful, patterned prints.”

Ben (Operations & Logistics) – “I love the look and feel of Osklen, and I can definitely relate to their beachy/mountain vibe.”

Nicole (Community) – “I’m excited to see Charlotte Ronson‘s light and fresh Spring designs.”

Kyle (Community) – “Milly by Michelle Smith is a fun, contemporary brand making its mark in the fashion world.  My girlfriend is a designer there so this will be my third fashion show and it’s exciting to see how the brand has transformed over the past 2 years.”

Ailen (Operations & Logistics) – “You can always count on a Betsey Johnson show to be both visually appealing and entertaining. The vibrant colors and the wackiness of her brand make it a fun show to watch.”


Enjoy the week, and we’ll see you on the runway!
