Ride service Uber is testing out a feature in Florida that would allow users without smartphones to to request a ride. The pilot program is launching in Pinellas County on July 18, and will provide one subsidized ride a month. The free Uber rides are only offered in a designated area during work hours, and callers will have to explain why they need the ride (although it isn’t just for emergencies: grocery shopping qualifies, too).
