Ride Safely: Get a Bike Helmet on Demand

Uber is committed to connecting Philadelphia with safe, reliable, and affordable transportation options. And with this week’s launch of Indego, Philly’s new bike share program, we’re extending that commitment to bicycle safety.

Request HELMET in the Uber app to receive a Nutcase Metroride commuter helmet on demand in exchange for a $10 donation, which will go to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, a champion of Indego.


HOW IT WORKS

  • On April 23 at 11am, open the app and request HELMET
  • A driver-partner will arrive in minutes with your Nutcase Metroride commuter helmet*
  • You will be charged a $10 donation per helmet, which Uber will match and donate to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia
  • Limit of two helmets per request. Available while supplies last or 4pm, whichever comes first
  • The Metroride adjustable helmet fits most S/M and M/L head sizes (21 5/8″ – 22 3/4″ or 55 – 59cm)—it may not fit heads outside of this size range

The HELMET option will be available in the Philadelphia area, from 63rd Street to the Delaware River from West to East, and Lehigh Avenue to Pattison Avenue from North to South.

Interested in donating more than $10? Visit the Bicycle Coalition’s website.
