Request an Uber around Lincoln, Nebraska and you may get driven by junior US Senator Ben Sasse. The Republican Senator has been working part-time as an Uber driver to support charities as well as to get the opportunity to know his constituents a little bit better. A student at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln tweeted about his experience getting driven by the Senator, and said that they had a nice conversation.

Senator Sasse apparently has a 5-star rating, and offers some sage advice for anyone using Uber — especially in the early morning hours on weekends.

Don't forget that if you don’t already have an Uber account, you can sign up here to receive a free ride (up to $20) from TPG. Also keep in mind that you should sync a credit card with your Uber account that will earn you the greatest return on your ride, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve for 3 points per dollar on travel.
