Ride Guide: Cougars Football 2018

September 6, 2018 / Houston

Make the smart play this season—leave your keys at home and celebrate game day stress-free.

Fall is in the air, and that means that Cougars football is finally back. As the Preferred Ride of Houston Athletics, we’ve created a winning experience for fans like you. When you head to TDECU Stadium this season, you can now use the dedicated Uber location for easy pickups and dropoffs.

TDECU Stadium Uber Pickup and Dropoff Area

What to expect: After the game, head to the dedicated Uber pickup area located on the west side of Calhoun Rd. along University Dr. Once you arrive at the pickup area, request a ride through your app and your driver will meet you there.

Rider pro tips:

  • Share your location with your driver. Riders can show their exact location to their drivers by turning on Live Location Sharing. Location sharing is only during the pickup experience.
  • Share your trip with loved ones. You can now share your whereabouts and trip status with friends and family, all right from the app.
  • In-app chat directly through the Uber app to contact your driver for the perfect pickup.
  • Spotlight. When you’re in crowded areas or it’s nighttime, it can be hard for you and your driver to find one another. With Spotlight, you can light up your phone with a special color specific to your driver.
  • Get in the right car (and other safety tips). Before you get in the car, check that license plate, driver photo, and driver name all match what’s listed in the app. Rides can only be requested through the app, so never get in a car with a driver who claims to be with Uber and offers a ride.
