Uber launches RELIEF for Houston
Early this morning – Saturday, May 30th 2015 – Uber went live with their RELIEF car service for all of Houston.
Basically, UberRELIEF offers the same features as UberX; at the same price. However for the entire weekend, Uber will donate $1 to Houston’s Red Cross to assist with the flood recovery operations for each RELIEF ride taken.
All Houston Uber riders will be able to select the RELIEF car service through their app when requesting a ride. Note: This will only be available for today (the 30th) and tomorrow (the 31st). We will update you if they decide to expand the timeframe or reintroduce the service as recovery efforts are expected to take months.
