If you are an Uber user, you’re in for a treat, because from 8th of April til 26th of April, the company will be giving out up to 5 free rides to users travelling within the Mont Kiara and Hartamas areas. For those who haven’t heard, Uber is a service that lets users make bookings for private drivers to take them from point A to point B, much like how a taxi works.
We Malaysians love it because Uber runs on a cashless payment system (it charges you via your credit/debit cards), you don’t have to bargain with taxi drivers that don’t use the meter. It’s also generally safer, unless you’re Daniella Sya.
Here are the 7 locations that fall under the promotion:
- Mont Kiara
- Taman Sri Hartamas
- Desa Sri Hartamas
- Plaza Damas
- Solaris Mont Kiara
- Solaris Dutamas
These rides are estimated to be worth RM20 each, making it a total of RM100 worth of rides. Just be sure to key in MKFREERIDES in the promo code section when you’re requesting for an Uber. Now you have a great excuse to continue your ‘hipsterly’ expensive food and drink choices in Publika, and bring your friends out for Korean fried chicken and drinks at Solaris Mont Kiara in the evening. We’re predicting a significant increase in Uber drivers roaming those areas, so don’t worry about not being able to book one.
Also, you do NOT have to be an existing Uber user. If you’re new, all you have to do is download it on your Android device or iPhone, and register yourself as a free user. You can use it straightaway by entering the promo code above. For more details, give Uber’s blog a look.
