Need a lift during the Detroit International North American Auto Show next week? There's an app for that. Cadillac is partnering up with the taxi app Uber to give free rides around town in the 2014 Escalade.
According to a press release:
To request a ride in a 2014 Cadillac, users should open the Uber smartphone app, toggle to the right and select the "Cadillac" option; select the pickup location; tap "Request;" and the 2014 SRX or Escalade will be on its way. Riders are encouraged to post to Twitter and Instagram about their experiences using the #UberCadillac hashtag to @Cadillac and @Uber_Det.
Sure beats trying to get anywhere using the People Mover!
