There is nothing quite like promoting a new product through offering free samples of it, especially when the product is a service of some sort. Taking this into mind, the luxury company Uber is providing free cab rides to people who use their cell-phone app in Boston until 8 p.m. Thursday night.
While often times unpleasant to ride in, taking a taxi cab in Boston is about to get easier, not to mention, a whole lot cheaper.
The local-folks behind the luxury livery company Uber, which lets you call for transportation with the tap of an app, are offering up a few days of free rides through their new Uber “TAXI” service.
TAXI rides requested through Uber will be free from 5 a.m. Tuesday, October 16, through Thursday at 8 p.m.
“No strings—all someone has to do is [sign-in] and they can take as many TAXI rides for free as they’d like through Thursday,” according to a spokesman from Uber.
