Uber offers discounted rides to metro Atlanta Xpress bus passengers

The Georgia Regional Transportation Authority has partnered with Uber to provide discounted rides to Xpress bus customers.

GRTA provides express bus service to Atlanta from numerous suburban counties. Uber will offer a 50-percent discount on uberPOOL trips that begin or end at any Xpress park and ride lot except Hamilton Mill and Cumming, where the company does not provide the service. The uberPOOL service allows you to share rides and split the cost with passengers heading in the same direction.

The discounts are good on weekdays from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. through May 31. Uber also recently partnered with MARTA to offer similar discounts in the wake of the I-85 bridge collapse.
