Neighborhood Love: Montavilla / Foster

As we clock in 120 days here in Portland under the City’s ridesharing pilot, we are really excited to continue helping residents explore the Rose City’s great neighborhoods.

In fact, we’ve seen that Uber is as reliable for those who live in the bustling downtown, as those living in more distant neighborhoods like Montavilla with trip completion rates hitting 97% in both neighborhoods.

As we look forward to calling Portland our permanent home this October, we’re continuing to team up with local businesses to get more residents venturing out and discovering local nuggets like one of the world’s oldest fortune cookie factory, cosplay figure drawing classes, world-renowned dance instructors and so much more.

From Sat, Aug 22nd – Mon, Sept 7th, explore the places that makes Montavilla and Foster Portland’s best-kept secret. Take a free ride to one of those neighborhoods on us and your Uber receipt will unlock backstage tours, free classes and unique discounts from over 20 local favorites. Just enter promo code MONTFOST and head on over.

What to do:

  1. From 8/22 – 9/7, download your Uber app and enter Promo Code: MONTFOST (New and Existing users)
  2. Take a ride to the Montavilla or Foster area. (See boundaries here)
