Roadmap to the

Boston Marathon®

Marathon Monday is one of the city's proudest days of the year, and as the Official Ride of the Boston Marathon®, we’ve put together a guide with everything you need to know about the week—from navigating road closures to information on the Uber Road to the Race tent at Copley Square.

Boston Marathon®

Road Closures

On Monday, April 16, there will be a number of road closures in Boston. Most roads should be open again by 8pm that evening, but it’s good to know which roads will be closed in advance to keep your trips as smooth as possible.

Here is a list of the major closures scheduled for April 16:

  • 5am – 7pm: Charles Street, adjacent to the Boston Common
  • 6am – 8pm: Boylston Street, between Hereford and Arlington Streets
  • 8am – 7pm: All streets east of Massachusetts Avenue (as well as Massachusetts Turnpike Exit 22)
  • 8am – 7pm: All streets west of Massachusetts Avenue in the Kenmore Square/Audubon Circle area
  • 8:30am-7pm: All streets in the Brighton area leading to the route


The highlighted area will be closed on 4/16/18 for the Boston Marathon®.

Dedicated Uber Pickup Spots

As the Official Ride of the Boston Marathon®, we’ve worked with Marathon officials to designate multiple dedicated Uber pickup and dropoff areas along the race route to make driving on Marathon Monday as seamless as possible.

Your riders will be directed to meet you at these areas if they are close to one. As always, you can use your Uber in-app navigation to find your rider.

Airport Information

Big things happening in Boston

We noticed that most out-of-town visitors make their way into the city on Saturday and leave the Tuesday after the race. We expect an increase in airport pickups on Saturday and an increase in airport drop-offs on Tuesday.
