Synergy launched an effort to bring affordable transportation to all of our guests, and we started in San Francisco. We've partnered with Uber, the global leader in affordable ride-sharing technology, serving over 100 cities worldwide. The pilot program gave all of our San Francisco residents promo codes to cash in on their next ride with Uber.
San Francisco can be a difficult city to get around in if you don't have a car. That, paired with SF being Uber's home base makes it the perfect proving ground for a transportation program for Synergy's guests. If you use our promo codes, this partnership will blossom in many of our other markets! Take advantage of our current promo code: SYNERGY20 which will give any new user $20 off their first ride.
Free Uber rides for all our guests? Now THAT is exciting news!
For Carl Wentworth, what began as a simple request to have his father buried with full military honors turned into a walking campaign to stand up and honor all veterans for their service.
His cross-country "Walk for Heroes" began November 11, 2013 in Boston and ended on August 30, 2014 at the Santa Monica Pier.
Synergy had the honor of providing an apartment for Carl as he walked into Downtown Los Angeles on August 29 from a city nearly thirty miles away. Carl was brimming with gratitude for his warm welcome from Synergy, the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and the staff at Avant Southpark Apartments.
He told stories of his journey which were insightful and rich with inspiration. The following day Carl walked from Downtown Los Angeles to the Santa Monica Pier where he was greeted by Synergy Associates Ronna Goldstein and Nancy Walsh, along with Ronna's father David Rosen, a World War II veteran. They proudly walked with Carl on the last leg of his journey to the end of the pier where friends, strangers, and veterans all thanked Carl for building awareness for veterans through his "Walk for Heroes" campaign, a 5,000 mile journey!
