No need to take your car for a night out on the town. Uber and Lyft have become even more affordable, thanks to new ride sharing discount codes provided by the City of Wilton Manors.
These codes are available to residents, visitors, and businesses who choose to use the aforementioned ride services to travel to Wilton Drive on both Friday and Saturday evenings.
Intended to alleviate the never-ending search for parking spaces during peak hours, the cost for rides after the promotion codes equate to the price of three hours and twenty minutes of parking.
Making things even more difficult for visitors to The Drive is the ongoing construction taking place. Although the ride share promotion is not entirely credited to the construction, it will certainly assist in easing congested traffic.
More specifically, discounts are $5 each and are available for the first 25 Lyft and first 25 Uber riders who request to go to any Wilton Drive destination between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. The codes will work from any pickup destination and can be redeemed once per person per night.
The idea of the promo codes was a combined effort of the City Commissioners, those on the City’s Wilton Drive Improvement District Board, and the Economic Development Task Force.
“The City of Wilton Manors proudly embraces commuting options to increase mobility choices for our residents and visitors,” said Mayor Justin Flippen. “Our hope is that the discounts will further encourage people to rideshare to reduce traffic, parking congestion and carbon emissions.”
The Lyft and Uber promo codes for Friday and Saturday nights change each week. The website (below) will be updated through September 2019 every week with the new codes.
Promo codes for special events will also be offered from time to time. Two upcoming events include New Year’s Eve and the Classical Concert at Hagen Park.
On Monday, Dec. 31, the Lyft promo code is NEWYEAR1231 and the Uber promo code is enky87j. The Concert on Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. has a Lyft promo code of CLASSICAL0109 and an Uber promo code of eh5ysf2. The Wilton Drive Improvement District is sponsoring those two special event promo codes.
To enter the discount code manually, open the Lyft app on your phone. Next, select the menu, which is the three lines in the upper left corner. Select “Promos” and then type in the code.
To manually enter the Uber promo codes, open the Uber app on your phone. Next, select the menu, which is accessed by clicking the three dots in the upper left corner. Choose “Payment,” scroll to the bottom and select “Add Promo Code.” Here, you can type in the discount code. Note that it’s case sensitive, so all of the letters must be entered in lowercase.
