We want all families to be able to participate in PTA events, and transportation can be a barrier. Here are two ways you can get to and from PTA events.
Uber Events lets families use Uber on their phones to come and go from events, at no cost. We are trying this service out in 2018. When we announce an event, we send a link and promo code. Either can be used to claim a ride. You need an Uber account/app to use the service. Once you claim a ride pass, you will get a notification when the ride window opens (usually an hour before the scheduled event time), and you can use Uber on your phone to come and go.
We don't pay if you don't use the pass, so no worries if you change your mind or get a ride some other way. But we only order a certain number of passes and once a pass is claimed, it can't be returned. Please don't claim a pass unless you are pretty sure you will use it.
This is a new effort for 2018 so we hope you will have patience with any issues that come up. You should not be charged anything, so if you are, please let us know.
If you can't use Uber or just don't want to, we are be happy to arrange ridesharing. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
