We Love the Short North

This month, we’re celebrating our two year anniversary in Columbus and showing some love to where it all began – the Short North.

The Short North has a special place in our Uber Columbus hearts. It was the location of our first office, a co-working space on Pearl St., where we spent countless early mornings and late nights building, running, and growing Uber in Ohio and Kentucky. Although we’ve since moved to a new office just a stone’s throw away, we still frequent the Short North to visit the places and the people that stole our hearts.

We’re giving away a Short North staycation!

One lucky Uber rider will receive a one-night stay at Le Meridien, door-to-door service courtesy of Uber, and a swag bag full of goods from Short North vendors.

How To Win

  • Apply promo code SHONOLUV under the promotions tab in your app
  • Ride Uber between Monday, December 7 and Sunday, December 13
  • After you apply the code, every ride you take between 7am Monday and 11:59pm Sunday counts as one entry

Exclusive deals for Uber riders

We’ve partnered with some of our favorite spots in the Short North to offer Uber riders special deals this week. In order to unlock these bits of joy, you’ll need to take an Uber to the vendor’s location. Check them out below!

A special thank you to all of our partners, we couldn’t have done it without you!
