UberX's Thanksgiving special for Silicon Valley

UberX has a Thanksgiving special for Silicon Valley: two free uberX trips between Monday, Nov. 25 and Sunday, Dec. 1. The rides must begin or end in Silicon Valley, which UberX defines as Redwood City to San Jose.

Not only that: Uber is partnering with dozens of local businesses, from bars and restaurants to yoga studios and frozen yogurt shops, that will offer uberX riders discounts during the week.

Uber, which raised $258 million from Google Ventures, is known for its black town car service. UberX is the “low-cost Uber.”
