Butler has partnered with Uber, an on-demand private driving app, to offer a safe, alternative transportation option to and from campus. New users to Uber can use promo code BUTLER101 to receive $20 off their first ride. (From the website) Need information on how to use Uber? It's simple: Use the iPhone or Android app, or visit m.uber.com to request a ride. Sit back and relax. Uber will text you when the vehicle arrives.
