Shuttle Service Offers Free Rides – If You Sing

Forget about making awkward conversation with your Uber driver. Fortum, a clean energy company based in Europe has reinvented the concept of singing for your supper. Instead, you can get a free ride in the “Singalong Shuffle. As part of a new promotion, people can get a free ride as long as they sing the entire duration of the ride in a BMW i3. If someone stops singing along with a tablet device that contains song choices and lyrics, you get booted out faster than three strikes in the Cash Cab. The point of the promotion is to show how quiet the electric cars are.  Although not everyone is comfortable singing, think of it like this: Just like the Uber driver, you will never see this cabbie again so belt it out!
