Summertime and the riding’s easy (and free!)


Newport… Your FREE Uber is Arriving Now!

Warmer days and fun-filled nights are finally here. We won’t let a safe ride stand between you and a summer of fun, so we expanded our reliable coverage area to include your favorite summer destinations like Newport and Narragansett.

Whether you’re headed to dinner on the water, a backyard BBQ, or a night out on Thames, Uber has you covered. We’re not the old-fashioned designated ride home you grew up with – just press a button and let us whisk you away to wherever your heart desires in a sweet ride.
