Mack-Cali, Uber Partner on Ridesharing

Program Pays for Transport to Metropark in NJ
January 31, 2018
Mack-Cali Realty Corp. and Uber have teamed up on a commuter ridesharing initiative for tenants at four office complexes at Metropark in Iselin, NJ, as part of a three-month pilot program.

Starting Feb. 1, Mack-Cali will pay for its tenants’ Uber rides up to $15 to-and-from four office complexes in at the Metropark train station during commuting hours, according to a press release.

Uber said that it previously pioneered a commuter ridesharing program with Summit, NJ, in 2016 to help improve residents’ access to mass transit.

Mack-Cali’s focus is on urban and suburban office developments near mass transit, and the new initiative with Uber aims to make it easier for tenants who commute to connect with nearby transit stations, according to the announcement.

"We're constantly looking for new ways to up the convenience quotient for our office tenants, and this partnership with Uber is an innovative way to do so," Mack-Cali CEO Michael DeMarco said in a statement. "We realize our tenants work long, sometimes unpredictable hours. We hope that, by providing them with subsidized Uber rides, we can help simplify this aspect of their lives."

The four Mack-Cali commercial properties where tenants are eligible for the program are: 333 and 343 Thornall St. in Edison, 101 Wood Ave. in Iselin and 581 Main St. (pictured, above) in Woodbridge.

An Uber pickup/drop-off area with custom signage will be set up at each of those locations and integrated directly into the Uber app so riders and drivers know exactly where to meet one another. Because of Uber’s upfront pricing, riders will know the cost before requesting their ride, and anything more than $15 will be billed automatically to the rider’s personal payment method.
