Uber will not offer free rides over holiday weekend

(KTRS) – Those behind Uber X, the ride sharing app, say they will not be offering free rides in the St. Louis area this weekend.

The Metropolitan Taxi Commission had granted Uber’s request, but was requiring several conditions be met before the rides could begin. Fox 2 reports that Uber said they would not be able to meet some of the requirements: they would not be able to fingerprint and drug test every driver before the weekend.

Uber officials stated they wanted to offer the free rides to keep drunk drivers off the road.
