Ride in Style: Free Rides in Vintage Cars from Uber NYC and Boardwalk Empire

Vintage Boardwalk Empire promotional vehicle via Uber

Uber usually drives you to your destination in their on-demand black towncars and luxury SUVs, but they’ll be adding a bit of classic style this Thursday and Friday. Take a trip back to the 1920s in these “Boardwalk Empire” promotional cars that will be picking up passengers who request a special ride via the Uber app.

To request:

- Tap on the HBO view to locate a vintage ride—request quickly to beat the other gangsters to the punch.
- Hop in your ride and cruise to your favorite Speakeasy in classic luxury.

The only restrictions are Manhattan only (between Midtown and SoHo), three passengers per car, and you must have the Uber app to request a ride. Read the full info on the Uber Blog.

If you take a ride or see of one of the cars driving around the city, snap a pic and post it in the comments or mention @agreatbigcity on Twitter!
