Free This Week: UberX Rides in Reston, Tysons

Uberx free ride area through July 24

It’s a big week for transportation in the Tysons Corner-Reston corridor as Metro’s Silver Line opens Saturday.

Rideshare app Uber is getting involved too. Through Thursday, all uberX rides from Tysons to Reston (or vice versa) and anywhere in the zone (see graphic) are free.

Visit the Uber blog for more information, but here are the basics:

  • Enter the promo code SILVERLINE by logging into your account here or in the app. You only need to enter the code one time to unlock your two free uberX rides.
  • Between July 21 and July 24 at 11:59 p.m, begin or end your uberX trip from Reston to Tysons and your ride will automatically be free up to $30 (limit two rides).
  • Even after your two free rides, uberX fares are 25 percent cheaper the rest of the summer.

There are some other local perks too. Show your Uber receipt for discounts:

    I was under the impression that Uber was still not legally allowed to operate in Virginia (at least in picking up passengers).

      They’re not. An injunction was recently filed after they ignored the DMV cease and desist order. However, they have started filing the proper paper work and hopefully will come into complaince with consumer safety laws (i.e. taxi insurance, proper licensing, etc.).
