Concessionaire MetroRio launches a card that gives discounts to travelers who make Uber trips and rent common bikes.

The discount is made through a promotional code that must be included in the Payments / Add Uber promotional code field, will guarantee a 30% discount for each trip (discount is limited to R $ 10) for races from a metro station or who have destination one of 41 MetrôRio stations. The code will be valid for one week (seven calendar days) as of the day the code was first entered in the app.
