If you're not familiar with Uber, HELLO?! Uber is an app that connects you with a driver at the tap of a button. Request a ride and have a driver curbside in minutes (well, if it's rush hour or raining it might be a wee longer). When you reach your destination, your fare is automatically billed to your card on file, and there is no need to tip!

I can't even tell you how thrilled I was when Uber first launched in New York. Traveling in taxis with kids is so scary. My Uber drivers are always so polite, and help me with the kids and gear. That pretty much never happens when I take a cab.

Anyway, Uber is taking things to the next level and launching uberFAMILY, which allows us to request a ride that's equipped with a car seat for a $10 surcharge.

To develop uberFAMILY, Uber NYC teamed up with The Car Seat Lady’s Dr. Alisa Baer, who trained the service’s highest-rated partner drivers on how to safely secure the seats — which were all manufactured specifically for Uber.

In celebration of Mother’s Day, Uber NYC is kicking things off with a surcharge-free weekend thanks to its partner, Care.com.

Use promo code  CARSEAT for $30 off your first Uber ride. Just download the Uber App and enter the code. Already have Uber? Enter the code to unlock the uberFAMILY option in your app.
