Getting picked up at NRG

This year, the rodeo has designated an Uber pickup and dropoff area in the Green Lot outside of NRG Stadium. Your driver can drop you off  in any safe location near the stadium, and you’ll be directed to the Green Lot or an additional pickup point when you request a ride home.


There will be heavy traffic in the area surrounding NRG, so please follow all signs and directions from traffic officials as you head to the pickup area.

Pro tips

Confirm your driver

Double check your driver’s car make and model, license plate, and their name and photo in the app before hopping in. Uber rides can only be requested through the app, so never accept solicitations from anyone claiming to be Uber.

Ditch your drinks

Respect your driver and their vehicle—we want Uber to be enjoyable for everyone. Share kindness and respect, and avoid bringing open containers or food with you that can lead to stains and spills. Check out more Uber Community Guidelines.

Share your trip details

Let your friends know when you’ll arrive by sharing your on-trip details in real time straight from the app.

Check for items before exiting

If you left something behind in the vehicle, you can contact your driver directly by tapping Your Trips in the app menu. Please note, that there is a $15 lost item fee for your driver to return it to you.

For a more perfect pickup

Enable location sharing in the app for a more accurate pickup. You’ll know it's working if you see a blue icon in the bottom-right of the app.

See the price before you ride

Don’t let the cost of a trip rain on your parade. With upfront pricing, you can enter in your destination address and see the price before you ride.
