What better way to get your customers to rally for Uber than to offer free lifts to and from City Hall?
I received this email from Uber NYC. They are concerned about a bill that would affect Uber drivers – Their response: offer customers free uberPOOL rides to City Hall Park tomorrow so customers can demonstrate their Uber support and love. The email says:
We need your help. Mayor de Blasio is supporting a bill that would stop thousands of new drivers from joining the Uber platform. This bill would destroy 10,000 job opportunities for New Yorkers in just one year, and result in longer wait times, higher prices and less reliable service for riders. Tell the Mayor and the City Council to save Uber as you know it by joining us this Tuesday for a rider and driver rally.
I don’t have a position on this one way or another. But, too bad the rally isn’t at 9am – I would take the uberPOOL ride to City Hall and then walk to work….
