ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

The sponsors of a pop-up concert held at noon on Wednesday, Dec. 28 in Pioneer Square’s Occidental Park may have come a bit as a surprise for the crowd gathered to hear the sounds of local band Hey Marseilles.

Before the musical group started crooning its folk-rock tunes, representatives from the City of Seattle’s Department of Transportation (SDOT) and Uber came on stage to deliver a message.

The two organizations teamed up as concert co-hosts to spread the word about a special offer that could prevent accidents and possibly save lives.

Tracey Breeden national safety spokeswoman for Uber, explained that the company is providing a $10 discount on uberPOOL trips on New Year’s Eve.

Users can redeem the discount by entering the promo code “SAFESTART2017” in the Uber app. The deal will apply to any rides between 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 31 and 5 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 1.

“We can be your designated driver this New Year’s Eve,” Breeden said. “Not getting behind the wheel saves lives.”
