Who Loves to Party, Boston Loves to Party.


We all know that Boston loves to party… and there’s no bigger party than New Years Eve.

We’re psyched to provide the convenience of taking Uber to the party - we’ll have plenty of town cars, SUVs, and chrome to keep you warm on a cold winter night. However, after that 4th glass of champagne sometimes bad decisions get made…

So how are you getting home?

Tweet us your NYE plans and make the resolution to not drink and drive with the hashtag #uberhomesafe, and five lucky Uber stars will snag $15 in Uber credit to use on their next ride in 2012.


America’s Drunkest City

That’s a pretty hefty title for better or worse… and we want to focus on the better. Uber Boston has been around for two months now and we want to make sure everyone makes the effort to get to the new year as safely as possible… and we think getting you home should be the first step. 

If you’re new to Uber, let me give you a rundown of how we work:

Uber is an on-demand limo service designed to pick you up in 5-10 minutes and take you wherever you need to go. All you need is your mobile phone!

Just sign up in the Android or iPhone app (or online at www.uber.com) and create an account.  When you need a ride, open your app (or text your address) and pin your location, then request a driver. Our Uber magic shoots out a request to the nearest black car driver, who’ll be at your side in less than 15. 

Go wherever you need to go without having to worry about cash or tip. Uber is paperless, it charges your card the fare at the end of the trip, sends you a detailed receipt of your trip, and disappears until you need it again.
