As attested by Torsten’s comprehensive transit guide, getting around the cavernous McCormick Place where the ongoing C2E2 show is being held is no easy matter and getting away from it can be hellish. However, the show has teamed with Uber, the get a ride app, to offer a FREE ride for new signees. Existing users can enter to win $100 in Uber credit.
For those who haven’t been using it, Uber is all the rage here in NYC and other urban areas.YOu sing up put in a credit card and then you can use your phone to summon a car at a few moments notice wherever you may be. These kind of “on demand” services are being scrutinized in many places so get in while the getting is good.
