Uber Tent Becomes Hot Spot During Democratic Convention

Posted on July 27, 2016

The busiest spot in Philadelphia last night wasn’t inside the Wells Fargo Center, where Democrats kicked off their national convention. Instead, it was a white tent several hundred yards north, near the outskirts of the arena’s giant parking lot.

That’s where Uber had set up a pick-up lounge for DNC attendees not fortunate enough to have a designated delegate bus or hotel within walking distance of a Philadelphia subway stop.
