Uber partners with Parkmerced community to boost public transit

  • New residents in Parkmerced receive monthly $100 credits, $30 of which must be used on Uber.
  • Uber is capping the cost of uberPOOL rides at $5 to the nearest public transit station.
  • The hope is that residents will utilize alternative means of transportation in lieu of owning a personal automobile.

Parking your car in the city is the pits, if you can even find a spot. But at Parkmerced, a new development in San Francisco, a new amenity for residents fights the lack of parking. Thanks to a partnership with Uber, participating residents of the Maximus Real Estate Partners (MREP) property will be awarded transportation stipends to entice carpooling and forgoing car ownership.
