Uber Texas offering free rides to and from shelters

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Uber announced Tuesday efforts to help those affected get what they need.

The ride-sharing service is donating $300,000 worth of rides, foods and relief as their teams work with local officials to determine how Uber can be most helpful, according to the company's blog.

Uber is providing free rides to or from shelters in several cities. When you request your ride, you don't need to do any special action - it will be automatically applied when you request uberX. Rides are free up to $50 each.

Here's a list of Hurricane Harvey shelters:
