4 Transportation Tips That Will Help You Save Money



So, you are looking for ways to save money and it appears that you would prefer cutting down on your transportation costs. Is your credit card taking a huge hit because of the Uber charges and other transportation costs?  Although Uber services are often cheaper than taxi rides, there are times when it can get very expensive owing to busy periods and high demands. If you are looking for ways to control the financial bleeding, you have come to the right place. Here are 4 transportation tips that will help you save money!
Tip 1: Share your rides
There is no need for you to ride alone. You can always share a cab with someone else. Through Uber Pool, you can easily share your ride with a passenger, allowing you to split the expenses with the other passenger. You can save up to 50% on Uber by sharing your ride. Not only will you be splitting the fare with the other passenger, you will also be doing the environment a huge favor. If everyone shares rides, there will be fewer vehicles on the roads, and if there are fewer vehicles, there will be less production of harmful intoxicants such as smog. The amount of gasoline used will also decrease tremendously. In addition to that, there will also be less congestion on the roads, allowing people to get to their destinations quicker.
Tip 2: Use ridesharing apps and promo codes
Ridesharing apps such as Uber and Lyft provide up to $50 in free ride credit. The car service, Uber, is available in over 58 countries and it allows one to get a ride in a few minutes; the payment for the rides can be done online too. Uber ensures that you are in total control of your cab, helping you track your driver´s progress to your location. You, no longer, have to wait a long while for a cab. And, these ridesharing apps regularly offer promo codes on special occasions; they also provide free ride credit to new users.
Tip 3: Use Uber´s referral Program
The Uber referral program is largely responsible for the company's success. Although the program was implemented over 4-5 years ago, riders, to this day, still take advantage of this program to earn credit. So, how does this work? Well, a rider is provided with a promo code that is credited to his Uber account when he provides the code to a new user. The new user then downloads the app using the code to claim a free ride. In addition to the new user getting the free ride, the referring rider also then gets a free ride credit. Visit the site, rydely.com, for more information on promo codes for existing Uber users.
Tip 4: Ride with a new user
So, you have a friend who has just downloaded the Uber app because of your insistence. Not only does he/she a have free ride, you do too, because of Uber’s referral program. However, why let the freebies stop there? You can now travel with your friend (new user) to a certain destination for free. And, when your friend takes his/her first ride, you also get a free credit applied to your account again! It sounds relatively easy, doesn't it? Well, it is. However, you should understand that free rides aren't worth losing your friendship. Therefore, you shouldn’t be pushy when you request to take a ride with them. You should also understand that not all promo codes guarantee a free ride. If the promo code does not cover the entire fare, you should split the fare with your friend.
