With the G train’s dreaded five-week shutdown set to go into effect tomorrow night, DNA Info has published a handy rundown of alternative ways of getting from Greenpoint to Long Island City. But they left this one out: the folks at Uber just e-mailed to tell us they’re offering free rides along the stretch of the G train that will be closed till Sept. 2.

To ride anywhere between the Nassau Avenue and Court Square stops, enter the promo code FREETRANSFER anytime between July 25 and August 31 and then get up to $30 off of a ride within the zone shown here.

Sure, the promotion won’t do much to salve the woes of daily commuters, since it’s only good for one ride — but it’s a pretty good way to arrive in steelo next time you hit PS1.
