Starting Uber soon!

I heard there's a separate promo for employees to commute home for free if they leave after a certain hour, any truth to that?

      And I don't know what op is excited about. Taking this perk would make your life miserable.

      Uber other than this promo provides monthly ride credits.

      @UBd this is for when shit happens and you decide to work really late to sort it out. it’s not a commuter perk to encourage working late.

      @Ruthless I don't know how you assumed I was excited about something without knowing the late start time...

      400, which is no longer applicable to new employees

    Do employees get credits for Uber Eats too?

      The regular Uber credits can be used for eats as well. So if I have anything left over towards the end of the month, I spend it on ice cream, because I can freeze it.

  • This program has also been abused by a bunch of folks over the years. They go out to happy hours and come chill at the office until 10. Probably still happens but props to the people who live this lifestyle

    I personally use the commuter benefit to put pre tax money on a debit card (up to 260 dlls ) for pools towards commuting back and forth to the office on top of the credits we get

    I end up with over 100 dlls in credits by the end of the month so I order pizza or Ice cream

      Uber "Last Mile" Program

      Free Uber trips to and from major Caltrain stations to Uber office and back (e.g. SF Caltrain to 1455, 1455 to SF Caltrain)

      Also exists for BART stations and Ferry terminal to Uber offices and back

    "Uber Safe Rides"
    Free Uber to anywhere after 10pm from office locations.

    Not something I use regularly, but a good program nonetheless. Sometimes you get into "the zone" and just want to finish up a project.

      And I think it was the inspiration, and therefore the dogfooding program, for Uber 4 Business.

    It's not meant to be a perk you use. It's meant to keep you safe if you've had to stay at work really late. I've used it once, and it was because I lost track of time playing pool and drinking beer in the office, after work.
