Throughout the conference we will be utilizing Uber vouchers to cover travel costs from DCA Airport/Union Station to the event hotel on Monday and Wednesday as well as to/from the hotel and Capitol Hill. Look out for an Uber voucher to be emailed to you at the email address you registered with for use during those times when you are in Washington, DC. To prepare, download the Uber app. Once you receive the email from Uber with your voucher, simply click into the voucher from your phone and it will ask to connect to your Uber account. Allow it to connect to your account. You will then be able to see it in your account in the wallet under the voucher tab. From there you can apply it to the rides to/from airport and to/from Capitol Hill. If you are using these services outside of those dates/locations indicated (ex. On Sunday if you are arriving early or Thursday if you are departing late), you can reimburse any taxi or rideshare expenses after the conference.
