Boston has had its share of really nice uberPOOL promotions in the past several months, including discounts during commuter hours, and a megaPOOL option during New Year’s Eve. Beyond these promotions, it is important to keep track of local news. The Massachusetts Bay Transport Authority will end its weekend late-night service by March 18, 2016. The board voted unanimously to cut back the hours by 90 minutes on weekends. The vote comes after months of deliberation on how the MBTA would attempt to cut costs that have landed the service in deep debt. The program cost approximately $14 million in subsidies in 2015. According to MBTA officials, ridership averaged around 16,000 during its first few months. Proponents of the service also claim that the value of these extra hours for commuters make it an imperative public service to the Boston area, with many groups of people relying on its affordability and safety.
To address this issue, Uber Boston is responding to the call. The end of late night service on the T will have an impact on thousands of people who will be seeking an alternative safe ride home during early hours. In an effort to continue connecting Bostonians to the people, places, and businesses they love, Uber Massachusetts will be offering $5 uberPOOL flat rate rides along T subway lines during late night hours for four weekends starting on March 19, 2016. The specific details of this Uber deal have not been fully disclosed, but will occur in the coming days for Boston residents who are hoping to take the uberPOOL service during late nights.
