The biggest football game of the year is in our backyard, and we’re excited to celebrate our home city as a Super Bowl Host Committee partner. This year, Bay Area residents and fans from all over the world can easily get to the action at the tap of a button for the smoothest experience yet. Join us as we celebrate cities — and the Big Game — in 3 core ways: making the experience of getting from A to B in the Bay Area great for residents and visitors, empowering riders with a safe ride home, and delivering surprises to riders and drivers all week.
When the Big Game is hosted in your home town, you’d better go all out. We’ve launched POOLtrain, allowing riders to take uberPOOL to and from Caltrain stations along the Peninsula. We’ve set up designated pickup and dropoff zones around Super Bowl City and Levi’s Stadium. We’ve teamed up with MADD once again, empowering people to make better choices by pledging they’ll take a safe ride home.
And finally, this week only, a blitz of Uber-style surprises will touch down in the city by the bay. Whether you love to throw around the ol’ pigskin or are in it purely for the snacks, you’ll want to take some time out to celebrate. Get the play-by-play below.
