NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – If you plan to use Uber or Lyft Saturday as you celebrate the new year, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • With Uber, expect higher fares from Midnight to 3 a.m.
  • Check the total cost of your ride when you put in your request.
  • You can also share and split fares with your friends.
  • Be sure to confirm your driver and their car.
  • Double check the license plate on your order.
  • Also, you can share your status with family so they know you’re safe once you get in your ride.

Last year, Uber provided more than 5 million rides. This year, they expect to move more than three times that in over 450 cities around the world.

As for Lyft, they have a special promotion that allows customers to snag a $10 credit for their ride, but it’s only for the first 1,000 people who apply.
