Uber celebrates the cities they serve and one of the best ways to engage with our communities is to encourage riders and drivers to vote. On February 21, Uber recognizes that Indians have some big decisions to make for the civic elections across the country. One decision you shouldn’t have to worry about is how you’ll get to the polls. In Mumbai, Uber has partnered with the BMC to make your commute to and from the polling booths easier than ever with a special election Uber discount. On voting day, new users can get a flat Rs 75 off on two rides. Additionally, to encourage and educate voters about elections, we also conducted a special driver training session with the Deputy Collector, Election, Mrs. Aparna Somani on February 14. The details of the deal in Mumbai are:
- Open or download the Uber app
- Enter promo code ‘VOTING2017’ to unlock Rs 75 off on your first two rides
- On election day, request a ride to and from your polling location
Similarly, in Pune, on Election Day, Uber is collaborating with and supporting the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation and Pune Municipal Corporation to help make it easier and more affordable for everyone to get to the polls and make their voice heard. On Tuesday, 21st February riders will see a special UberVOTE view encouraging them to join this historical election and make their vote count. Uber is offering a flat fare of Rs. 49 to the nearest polling booth at the push of a button. The specific of the election Uber discount in Pune is:
- Fare valid on UberVOTE view only
- Fare valid from 7:30am-7pm for trips in Pune
- Fare valid on trips upto 5 Kms.
- Trips over 5kms will be charged as per normal fare structure
PCMC Commissioner, Dinesh Waghmare also expressed his support for this initiative:
“It is encouraging to see such new and unique ideas from Uber to celebrate the city by contributing to create awareness about the civic body polls. It would be great to see increased voter turnout with such endeavours, which make coming to polling booths easy for citizens. We appreciate this effort by Uber and I appeal to the voters of PCMC to come out and cast their valuable vote and strengthen democracy.”
