Here's One Way Uber Could Get Some Good PR
A partnership with a New Jersey township to help reduce DUI arrests is exactly the kind of positive press Uber needs.By Eugene Daniels | October 24, 2015
If Uber is looking for a bit of good PR, one small township's program could be a good blueprint.
Evesham Township in New Jersey teamed up with Uber this month to help beef up an attempt to decrease its amount of DUIs. The program started out as a trolley service in September but Evesham has made it even more accessible through its Uber partnership.
According to reports, Evesham saw an average of 23 DUIs a month from January to August of this year. That was putting them on track for a record 250 DUIs for 2015. Which is a lot for a population of over 45,000 people.
