Five Central Florida Cities Wrap Up Unique Uber Pilot
This past year, the cities of Altamonte Springs, Lake Mary, Longwood, Maitland and Sanford launched a first-of-its-kind, inter-city pilot offering discounted Uber trips to travel between the five cities. This project ended on July 5, 2018.
“By creating innovative projects like this, we can better serve our residents through direct incentives and find viable, cost-effective mobility solutions for Central Florida,” said Frank Martz, Altamonte Springs City Manager. “By thinking outside the box and going that extra mile for our communities, we have developed a solid model that can act as a framework for future transportation models around the nation.
The five cities are currently working together to develop a more robust and open ended discount program for residents which features multiple transportation options from transportation network companies that arranges rides via an app.
We hope to present this innovative program before our City Commissions this fall.
