During Ramadan, the Muslim community will be observing a month of fasting before Hari Raya. At the end of the working day, Uber wants you to head home safe for Iftar and they are giving free rides from now until 30th June. This is valid for trips between 4PM and 9PM, with a maximum value of RM25 per ride.
To activate, just enter the promo code “MYUBERRAMADAN” into your Uber App and you’re good to go. Instead of being stuck in traffic or battling the crowd at a busy train station, you can leave the driving to Uber and enjoy the ride home in a safe and clean vehicle.
If you haven’t tried Uber yet, it is a mobile platform where it connects you to the nearest driver. During registration, you would need to key in a debit or credit card since Uber is a cashless system. So after each ride, you can just hop off and the trip will be automatically charged to your card. So no more fumbling over small change and Uber will also email you an official receipt with complete breakdown of your trip.
