Planning and attending events are going to have a new and different experience following the launch of a new service by Uber. UberEvents will allow party hosts to pick and pre-pay passes for their guests. After completing payment, a code will be issued which the party-goer will have to provide in order to be given a ride to the event. This service is not only limited to social events but can also be used by conference organizers or for other official engagements.
This pre-paid service is an alternative that will help party-goers attend events without putting their lives at risk on the roads or arriving late because of traffic
Uber is a San Francisco-based ride-hailing company that has been committed to making roads safer by curbing drunk-driving. This pre-paid service is an alternative that will help party-goers attend events without putting their lives at risk on the roads or arriving late because of traffic.
UberEvents is an online service that is very simple to use. The users are required to create their event on the website, uber.com, then their guest passes will be sent to them through email, which they will then send to their guests. The guests will enter their codes on their passes into the Uber app to get a free ride to the event. The event organizers using this service will be allowed to customize their guest passes for each event depending on the number of rides for each guest and the maximum value for the ride.
Aside from conference and other event attendees, some people expected to benefit from this service are residents of New York, Manhattan and Park Slope who frequent beaches especially during the summer. These urbanites normally spend several hours in traffic or on trains before reaching the beaches. With UberEvents, they will be able to avoid these transportation hassles by accessing Uber vehicles.
