Whether you’re a local or traveling from far-away continents, we know that getting around Los Angeles can be stressful (and a financial drain, if this year’s parking prices are anything to go by). We’re always looking for ways to help you, our readers — which is why we’re excited to announce that we’re teaming up with the lovely folks at Uber to give you a special gift, to help take the guesswork out of getting around the convention.
To get your first Uber ride free (up to $20), register at http://get.uber.com/go/laccublog, or download the app, and enter the promo code LACCUBLOG.
Uber, for anyone who doesn’t know, is an app that allows you to request a ride with the tap of a button. Drivers arrive curbside in just a few short minutes, and you can even track the arrival of your ride on your phone. Payment is charged directly to your credit card on file, so you can keep your cash for those WonderCon exclusives.
Best of all, Uber runs 24/7 — which makes getting a ride to and from a panel a breeze. They offer black cars, SUVs, and their low cost option, uberX, is about half the price of taking a taxi. You can even have your friends sign up as well, in order to the use the “Split Fare” tool and make riding even more affordable.
