Taking an Uber ride in Stuart might soon be cheaper, as long as you don't leave the city. 

In July, the City Commission may consider a one-year pilot program to pay 20 to 25 percent of the cost of Uber rides that begin and end in Stuart. 

The idea of cheaper fares is to get more people to take Uber and avoid parking in downtown. 

The city says the program has worked well in other Florida cities.
