With so much going on this fall, don’t waste time worrying if the new restaurant downtown has valet or if your friend’s choice for brunch is Metro accessible. From Bethesda to Arlington, and all throughout DC, Uber has you covered!
In case you aren’t familiar, Uber is an app that connects you with a driver at the tap of a button. Request a taxi, black car, SUV, or uberX sedan ride at any time using the Uber iPhone and Android apps or from m.uber.com. You can track the arrival of your ride on your smartphone, payment is cashless (no need to tip!), and you’ll even receive a text message when your driver arrives.
What’s more? You can now split the cost of a ride with friends. Request a ride, then use the “Split Fare” option to invite your friends to split the fare. If your friends opt in, each person’s credit card will be charged equally. No more pay-me-backs or IOUs.
