Low-cost alternative taxi service uberX is encouraging some borough exploration this weekend by offering free rides to, from, or between neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Just use the promo code BKLOVESuberX when booking a car in the uber app, and they’ll cover up to $20 for up to two rides anytime from noon today to midnight on Sunday.
