New partnership offers free Uber rides to victims of domestic violence in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh City Councilman Dan Gilman (District 8) announced a new partnership Tuesday afternoon between ride-sharing company Uber and the Women’s Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh to provide free ride for victims of domestic violence needing to get to safe shelter. 

“As Pittsburgh moves to a new economy and brings in new economic partners, we have to work together to also recognize the importance of corporate and social responsibility and making sure that we’re reaching out to the people of our communities when they need it most,” said the Councilman. “This partnership will enable victims to arrive at the shelter safely and free of charge.”
