Everyone knows that Pope Francis is in the United States right now. But did you know that there is a free promotion for the Uber Pope Philadelphia visit? To help Philly residents and visiting pilgrims move around throughout the papal visit weekend, Uber Pope Philadelphia is making their wheelchair-accessible vehicle (WAV) option free for all point-to-point trips within the Francis Festival grounds, all weekend long — from Friday at 6pm until Monday at 9am. Are you looking to travel into or out of the Francis Festival grounds? Uber’s WAV partner vehicles will be allowed to freely cross into and out of the Francis Festival grounds perimeter throughout the weekend. While rides within the grounds are free, remember that any WAV ride originating or ending outside of the Festival grounds will be charged the normal WAV fare. In case you did not know, the WAV option connects riders to drivers and curb-to-curb service using licensed paratransit vehicles that are equipped with ramps or lifts. WAVs are specifically meant for riders in wheelchairs and their companions. Please be respectful of your fellow pilgrims by only requesting WAV if you or someone in your traveling party requires it.
