Here’s an example of how it works
John lives at an apartment complex near the corner of 4th St. & 77th Ave., and works at an office building in Carillon off of Ulmerton Road. There’s not a direct bus route, but he can use Direct Connect. First, John heads to the bus stop near his home and boards the Route 4 northbound a little before 7:25 a.m. He arrives at the PSTA 34th St. bus stop at 7:45. As the bus approached the PSTA stop, John entered the promo code UBER2PSTA in the payment tab in his Uber app and hailed a ride. By entering this code, he gets $5 off his ride thanks to the Direct Connect program. The Uber driver drops him off at the front door of his office, with plenty of time to grab an espresso in the lobby before heading to his desk. Easy!
