TUKWILA, Wash. — To encourage area riders to pair rideshare trips with mass transit, Uber partnered with Sound Transit and the cities of Tukwila and Seatac to offer and promote discounts on rides to and from light rail stations, reported the Tukwila Reporter.

Beginning on Tuesday, Uber riders traveling to or from eight light rail stations south of downtown Seattle who enter the promo code in their app will now receive $3.50 off their UberX or UberPOOL trip.

The pilot is scheduled to run until Jan. 5, 2018, but its duration and scope could change based on reception by riders. For the full story, click here.
