#SummerintheCity safety tips from the Gracious Girl

Posted: Updated:

Summer nights are the perfect time to meet up with friends, but it’s also important to stay safe and be responsible.

If you find yourself in Portland’s Entertainment District this weekend, here are some gracious tips for making sure you have fun and stay safe.

  1. Don’t drink and drive! One easy way to keep the roads safe is to use Uber.

  2. Set your pickup location: If you are requesting from in the bars, set your pickup location to NW 2nd Ave and NW Couch St so your driver knows exactly where to find you. Want to triple check? Give your driver a call!
  3. Make sure you are in the right Uber: Once a driver is headed toward you, take a peek in the app for great info to make sure you get in the right car! Driver name, make + model, license plate number.
  4. Estimate Your Fare: No surprises here! You can always estimate your fare before requesting your ride.
  5. Surge Drop: Requesting a ride during our super busy time? Well, what goes up, must come down. Have some time to stick around? Get notified when surge pricing ends right on your phone.
