Days after a massive fire caused part of I-85 to collapse and shut down the interstate in both directions indefinitely, crews are continuing to work frantically to try and help commuters traveling this busy stretch of freeway. Currently, they are focusing on repairing Piedmont Road to ease traffic congestion. Although no one was injured in the incident, which happened about 7 p.m. Thursday just south of Ga. 400 on I-85 North, it means a section of the busy interstate that roughly 243,000 vehicles traveled on daily is now out of service.
Uber Georgia has pledged $5 million to keep prices low in the aftermath of the recent highway I-85 collapse. They plan to offer Uber rates discount rides to encourage specific commuting behaviors: carpooling and riding MARTA. Uber said the move matches their data showing hundreds of Uber rides beginning and ending at MARTA stations already. Specific Uber rates discount promotions that will be offered to passengers to try and help alleviate the very difficult traffic in Atlanta will include:
- All uberPOOL rides that begin or end at a MARTA station are discounted 50%
- All uberPOOL rides in Metro Atlanta are discounted 25%
- Those discounts are only available 6:00- 10:00 am and 4:00 – 8:00 pm, Monday to Friday
