Uncasville, CONN. – The ride-hailing app Uber has announced it’s offering rides to and from Mohegan Sun.
The popular ride service will be available for guests at the Mohegan Sun casino and hotel. Cars will be available for hire between the two locations 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Uber came to Connecticut in 2014 and has served customers in Fairfield, New Haven and Hartford counties. This is the first time the ride-hailing service will be in New London.
The taxi industry has felt threatened by Uber because its cars and drivers face several regulations that Uber cars and drivers do not.
