City and Uber team up for safety this Halloween

The City of Seattle is teaming up with Uber to offer discounted rides this Halloween weekend. At a time when children are trick-or-treating and adults are celebrating during weekend festivities, it’s important to be alert and stay safe on Seattle streets.

From Friday, October 28, through Monday, October 31, new and existing Uber users can safely catch a ride home from Halloween festivities in Seattle by entering promo code HALLOWPOOL for a $10 discount on one pool ride.

On October 28, Uber users will also receive VIP access to the Georgetown Morgue Haunted House, when they show their Uber trip receipt.

“If you’re planning on a night out that includes drinking, plan ahead by using rideshare or taxi,” says SDOT Director Scott Kubly.

According to the National Highway Safety Association (NHTSA), traffic collisions are known to increase on Halloween—especially during peak trick-or-treating hours of 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“Uber is committed to providing reliable transportation for Halloween,” said Brooke Steger, general manager of Uber Washington. “We want to make it easy for people to leave their keys at home and also give them the peace of mind that they’re not putting others at risk.”
