We’ve got you covered.

From November 1 to November 15, 2015 we gave Uber riders in the Pittsburgh area the chance to ride in a #purplecar free of charge.* #purplecar offered a safe alternative to distracted driving — and we threw in some fun surprises along the way.

*UPMC Health Plan covered Uber rides up to $25. If the ride was over $25, the rider was responsible for paying the difference. While supplies lasted. Limited to 1 free ride per user.

Why #purplecar?

All too often people are focusing on other things while they drive. #purplecar got Pittsburghers where they needed to go in a safe and convenient way.
