New Yorkers rejoice.
To honor its fifth birthday in New York, Uber is offering $5 flat rates for UberPool trips beginning and ending in select boroughs. On top of that, riders will also be able to redeem a free slice of pizza from select restaurants in each borough.
“To show our thanks to this great city and its people, we’re kicking off a 5-day celebration: 5 days celebrating 5 boroughs with $5 uberPOOL flat rates,” Uber wrote in a blog post. "And there’ll be pizza, too, of course. Because, hey, we know New Yorkers love a good slice. Each day this week we’ll highlight an NYC borough. On each borough’s day, we’ll offer $5 uberPOOL flat rates for trips beginning and ending in that borough, along with free pizza slices to anyone who shows the Uber app on their phone at select locations.”
The company's #UberPizzaParty campaign kicked off Monday in Staten Island where riders could get a slice at Joe and Pat's. Tuesday will focus on The Bronx, Wednesday is Queens, Thursday in Brooklyn, and the promotion will end on Friday in Manhattan.
