Never miss a beat by taking Uber to Summerfest

June 25, 2018 / Wisconsin

Uber is the official rideshare partner of Summerfest. Whether you are heading to Summerfest for an afternoon, or plan on rocking out to 11 nights of encores, head to the dedicated Uber Zone to request and get a ride.


Get the line-up

There is a main Uber pickup and drop off zone,  which is designed to help you get out of the concert and on your way as soon as possible. The Uber Zone will be running from June 27th – July 1st and July 3rd -July 8th.


Uber Drop off Zone

When you are heading to the Summerfest grounds, open your app and click Summerfest. Your driver will be automatically directed to the Uber Zone located right outside Mid Gate on E. Chicago. Your driver will need to drop you off in this lot. Please do not exit the vehicle on the streets. Traffic management will be there to help direct the flow of traffic.

There will be a $2 surcharge for drop-off added to to your trip. This will be represented in the fare before you accept your ride. This surcharge helps ensure a reliable pick up experience at Summerfest.  The surcharge does not go to the Summerfest.


Uber Pick up Zone

When leaving Summerfest, head toward the Mid Gate. Walk toward the Uber Zone located in the parking lot at E. Chicago St. Open your Uber app and enter your drop-off location. Your pick-up location will automatically be the Uber Zone. Select your preferred vehicle and tap the “Request” button.

Your driver will pull into the Uber Zone and someone will be there to help match you with your driver.

The biggest rush of riders will be right after the encore on the main stage let’s out. There will be a Rider Lounge located in the Uber Zone where you can charge your phone and wait for your driver.

There will be a $5 surcharge for pick-up added to to your trip. This will be represented in the fare before you accept your ride. This surcharge helps ensure a reliable pick up experience at Summerfest.  The surcharge does not go to the Summerfest.


 

Never miss a beat

With a lot of movement around the city, here are a couple tips to follow for the smoothest experience.

  • You will always be able to see the price of your trip  before you accept it. We expect the busiest times to be on the weekends or as the headline acts finish up their encore.
  • Always check the license plate in your app with the license plate of the vehicle.
  • Confirm your name with your driver.
  • If you are planning on traveling with a big crew, be sure to order an uberXL which can fit up to six riders comfortably.
  • Have a great trip? You can say thanks, by tipping your driver directly in the app.
