Okay, you win this round, Uber. via Gilt City

If you read us, you know we spend a lot of time railing against our least favorite Not Car Service, Uber. And for good reason: they’re more expensive than yellow taxis, soft Brooklyn depends on them like whiny babies, and most recently, they’re poised to drive up MTA fares like crazy.

But we also can’t resist a good deal, so begrudgingly we share the following news: Starting Friday, September 2 at 8pm until Monday, September 5 at 11:59pm, you can take a shared Uber anywhere in Brooklyn for $5 flat.

Yes anywhere, and yes $5. Sadly there’s no catch, besides the silent demerit points you rack up with us every time you take an Uber. You’ve gotta share the car with total strangers, sure, and it’ll take you an extra hour to get home if you end up riding with someone going to the opposite end of Brooklyn, but these are the small concessions we make to get in on cheap cab fare. If you absolutely neeeed a pal with you in the car, additional riders are $1.

Happy Labor day riding, folks. We’ll see you in the regular subway system on Tuesday morning.
