Ride to the polls with Uber!

April 23, 2016 / Kolkata

Voting on election day is a big decision. We want you to think about what’s important to you – not how you’re going to get to and from your local polling place.

That’s why we’re offering new users throughout Kolkata free* rides to and fro the polls on April 25 & 30.


  • New to Uber? Sign up here using the promo code KOLVOTES
  • Download the app (iOSAndroid or Windows Phone)
  • Request a ride and you’ll be on your way to the polls!


In keeping with the spirit of picking winners, here is a little contest of our own: since we are all about self expression here at Uber, once you are done voting, Tweet or Instagram your pictures & videos with #UberVoteKol and tell us why your vote mattered. The best submissions walk away with a whole bunch of free Uber rides. Help spread the word so more Kolkatans can have their voices heard on Election Day!

*First-time riders only. Two rides up to Rs. 50 each. Valid till  01/05/2016.
