Uber, the ride sharing service that’s essentially making cab companies irrelevant, is expanding to 22 college campuses this fall. They’re kicking off the expansion with free rides (up to $25) for Labor Day weekend. Students can get up to five free rides.

You’ll be able to take advantage of this if you attend school in one of the following college towns:
