The new service allows Uber customers to add a car seat to their ride for an additional $10. People can take advantage of the Uber Family launch by getting a car seat without being charged for it from May 8 to May 11. The charge for a car seat will be covered by Care.com and the first 1,000 people to use the service will get a care package.
Uber Family users can get a free child seat this weekend by entering the promo code “FAMILY” in the Uber app.
“Transporting children safely is extremely important to us,” Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com, said in a statement. “In teaming up with Uber, we’re raising awareness of the importance of child safety in car rides and helping provide an easier way for families to get around New York.”
