March might be the most popular time in Miami for ride-share apps. With spring break, Miami Music Week and the Miami Open all converging on the city, there are a ton of car-less folk in the 305 looking to bounce around town. Perhaps that’s why both Lyft and Uber are offering some special promotions right now.
Lyft’s deal is centered around Women’s History Month. The app is offering free rides to three local women-owned businesses: Caja Caliente, Wynwood Yard and Stanzione. You can also ride to the Women’s History Gallery at Women’s Park for free. Just enter the code WHMMIA19 in the app and head to one of these destinations for $0.
Not to be left behind, Uber is launching its in-car commerce provider in Miami just in time for Miami Music Week. The new feature, called Cargo, lets passengers use their app to buy a selection of snacks, cosmetics and personal care items. If you do happen to get an Uber with a Cargo box, you can also get a free Clear Complexion Purely Matte Peel Off Mask courtesy of Aveeno.
This should all come in handy as thousands prepare to flood Miami and traffic reaches peak levels of infuriating. Might you still get stuck on the MacArthur for seven hours? Perhaps. But at least you’ll have a free face mask to keep you fresh and clean.
