Most of us think of CES as being about TV’s with huge screens and all sorts of cool techy gadgets that we’ll never be able to afford, so here’s an interesting announcement: Uber is partnering with the Southern Nevada RTC (the nice people who manage our local bus service). Pretty soon, you’ll be able to buy bus tickets for regular price inside your Uber app.

So…the next time you go to a really cool residency concert and “accidentally” drop a little too much cash into that Breaking Bad slot machine, you’ll be able to easily book a much more, uh, cost-efficient trip home.  (Either that, or you could use the money you save from taking the bus to buy one of those cool techy gadgets they announce at CES.)
