This on-demand transportation service will provide new Uber users a free ride (up to $30 off) to or from the convention and any New York City airport. How does it work? Using Uber’s free iPhone/Android app (or the mobile web app at m.uber.com), you can request a pickup and a black car driven by a professional driver will show up in minutes. Your credit card is billed directly for your trip and there’s no need to tip, so you won’t need to carry cash. You can even see the car coming towards you on a map.

Follow these steps to get $30 off your ride:

  • Download the free Uber iPhone/Andriod app (or sign up at uber.com/go/promo for the m.uber.com feature on your browser).
  • Sign up with all your information and enter the promo code “AAJANYC.”
  • Request a ride 5 to 15 minutes before you need one. $30 will be applied towards your first ride.

Already riding with Uber? Use promo code “AAJANYC10″ for 10% off your ride the day of the event. Check out uber.com/nyc or email supportNY@uber.com for more information.
