As if driving through Chicago isn’t difficult enough, owning a car is expensive and requires plenty of maintenance. Why waste money on car insurance, filling your gas tank, parking costs, car repairs, and tune-ups when you can use Uber? Uber is a less-expensive alternative to owning a car or using a taxi. Plus, it’s convenient and gets you around the city in an earth-friendly way. 

Rely On Uber’s Excellent Services To Get You Around

Uber is a popular mobile app available in over 175 cities and 43 countries that helps to connect riders to transportation options with just the touch of a button. Uber is an affordable alternative to owning a car or using a taxi. Plus, it’s seamless, convenient and gets you around the city in an earth-friendly way. 

First, check out Uber’s calculator to see how much you could save by switching to uberX. If you think you could rely on Uber’s convenient services instead of your own vehicle, take the #DitchYourCar Challenge and donate your unwanted vehicle to Wheels For Wishes.

Uber Chicago is asking Illinois residents to take the #DitchYourCar Challenge by donating an unwanted car, truck, boat, motorcycle, SUV, RV, or camper to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Illinois. Donating a vehicle is incredibly kind and generous, but is also green and eco-friendly. Why waste money on car repairs or navigating Chicago’s busy streets when you don’t have to? Take the #DitchYourCarChallenge and instead of relying on your vehicle to take you around town, rely on Uber!
