“During holiday season and ski season, crowding becomes a problem in mountain resorts. And when you have both your skis and the boots, things get even more complicated. With uberSKI and the fixed rates between Brasov and Poiana Brasov, we want to bring our contribution to a ski season where we spend less time in the car or looking for a parking place and more time doing the things that matter to us,” Irina Scarlat, Uber Romania Marketing Manager said.

According to Uber representatives, in average traffic, the fare paid for a trip from the train station to Piata Sfatului will cost approximately RON 18, with the uberSKI option. A trip from Brasov – Poiana Brasov and back will pay a fixed fare, namely RON 40 using the uberX option and RON 50 using the uberSKI.
