Celebrating Ridesharing Regulation in Rhode Island

July 1, 2016 / New England

The #RhodeToRegulation has been three years in the making. We launched in Providence in September 2013, subsequently expanding to Newport and down the coastline to Narragansett, quickly becoming a part of the fabric of cities and communities throughout the state.

Earlier this month, Governor Raimondo signed into law a bill making Rhode Island the 34th state to enact sensible statewide ridesharing regulations that protect consumer choice, rider and driver safety and economic opportunity.

We would not be here without the support of our riders and driver-partners. Over the last three years, you’ve helped us share the story of how Uber has changed the way people move around the Ocean State.

As a token of our appreciation, we’re giving away a month of free rides to one lucky winner!

Each ride you take before Sunday, July 24 at 11:59pm is an entry for a free month of Uber!

How do you enter?

  1. Open your app, tap the Menu icon in the top left corner and tap Promotions (see how).
  2. Enter the promotion code RHODETOREGS
  3. Ride with Uber before Sunday, July 24 at midnight.
  4. Each ride you take counts as an entry to win a month of free Uber. The more you ride, the better your chances of winning!*
  5. The winner will be chosen on July 27 and notified via the email address associated with his or her Uber account.
