Part of the New York City experience is taking the subway – an easy way to get around the city, but with track work and closures, it’s not always the fastest. There is an alternative to the subway that’s better than trying to hail a cab and faster than using Citibike.
Uber is a car-sharing service that operates like a taxi, but is safer, cheaper, and more reliable. With just one click, guests can request an Uber driver to arrive at a specific location and with a specific type of vehicle. The cost of sharing an Uber for a family or group of friends is often less than the combined cost of individual subway or bus fares. In addition, Uber is 18% cheaper than a taxi ride.
We understand that using an unfamiliar car-sharing service can be intimidating, so we’ve provided some details about how Uber works. In addition, we’re very excited to share with our guests an exclusive promotional code that provides new users with $20 just for signing up! Simply type NYCbyFoot into the promo code box when registering and the $20 will automatically be added to your account!
What is Uber? Uber is a car-sharing service that was founded in San Francisco in 2009 and has since spread to over 70 cities. It operates as a safe and easy “taxi alternative.” The mobile app allows customers to pinpoint their location and also see the locations of Uber drivers nearby — including their estimated distance — so you can accurately plan when your Uber will arrive.
