Celebrate Independence Day, and Travel Safely

Celebrate July 4th safely and responsibly by letting someone else drive you home.

All day on July 4th, Uber will be offering discounted rides in Seattle as part of our Vision Zero campaign to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on city streets by 2030.

New and existing Uber riders can get a ride from Ballard, Fremont, and Wallingford neighborhoods with promo code POOLHOME, good for 2 free uberPOOL rides, each up to $10 in value. New users can also take advantage of a $20 discount, by entering the promo code SAFETYFIRST in the Uber app.

We expect over 65,000 people will be in and around Gas Works Park to view the fireworks this Independence Day, and we want to make sure everyone gets home responsibly after having a good time. While Seattle’s streets are among the safest in the nation, 30 percent of our traffic fatalities involve impaired drivers.

Together, we can get that number to zero. If you’re going to drink alcoholic beverages while enjoying fireworks or barbequing, request a rideshare, carpool, or plan ahead and take transit.

Through partnerships like this, as well as through education, enforcement, and engineering, Seattle is taking big steps toward meeting its goal of ending traffic deaths and serious injuries. The City will continue rolling out similar partnerships with all other interested technology and taxi companies
