For this weekend only, Uber has partnered with GE to bring DeLoreans to the streets of San Francisco.
GE’s Brilliant Machines campaign uses real-world examples to demonstrate how GE’s advanced hardware and analytical software can revolutionize the way cities are powered. In other words, the GE gas turbines in your DeLorean might predict and meet an entire city’s power needs someday.
How to snag a free ride:
- Open the Uber app anytime on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
- Supply will be very limited, but if your timing is right, you’ll see the DeLorean option
- Maximum of 15 minutes per trip and one person per vehicle
