According to a report from the Philadephia Inquirer, a partnership between SEPTA and Uber will give users of the black-car and ridesharing service a 40 percent discount on rides to and from 11 Regional Rail stations.

Over the summer, users will have discounted access to and from the Glenside, Jenkintown-Wyncote, Elkins Park, Melrose Park, Warminster, Doylestown, Lansdale, Woodbourne, Swarthmore, Wayne and Exton stations.

“The pilot program is designed to test whether that lack of parking is suppressing ridership,” according to the Inky report. “It’s possible, SEPTA officials said, traveling to a train station by Uber will make them more inclined to ride the train.”
