For those of us who have ridden in an Uber vehicle, it’s probably common knowledge that it can be a real party sometimes. I can recall times when I’ve requested an Uber town car to come pick me up only to be pleasantly surprised with an SUV coming by. And not an ordinary black SUV, but rather one with champagne glasses inside with privacy screens, reading lights, and a lot of fixtures that make you want to scream out “P-I-M-P”.
Well Uber has been known to surprise and be really great, so why wouldn’t they roll out a new program for one of the hottest concert tickets of the year: Lollapalooza. This Friday marks the start of this three-day concert event in Grant Park located in Chicago, IL. Over the course of the three days, there’s going to be a lot of people moving in and out of the area and you can be sure that public transit and taxi cabs are going to be booked up. But if you’re smart enough, you might just say “forget the cabs” and instead go after getting to and from in style…all in an Uber. C’mon, after an event-filled day with 8 stages, 150 bands, and dealing with over 300,000 party animals like yourself, the last thing you’re going to want to think about is just how are you going to get around. Let Uber take care of that for you…and they’re going to make it a bit more enticing too. (more…)
