Optus Stadium on an event day can expect crowds of up to 60,000 people – that’s a lot of earning potential for driver-partners. Completing trips to or from the stadium on these days can be tricky with a number of road closures and diversions.
Picking up and dropping off
Optus Stadium has a dedicated rideshare zone to pick up or drop off riders on event days. You can access the zone via Nelson Avenue, on the East Perth side of Matagarup Pedestrian Bridge – look for bays 5-8 on your left.
Important: To drop off or pick up riders from the rideshare zone on Nelson Avenue, you will need to visibly display an Uber sticker in your car. You can get a sticker from your local Greenlight Hub.
Riders will need to walk cross Matagrup Bridge to access the pickup/dropoff bays from Waterloo Crescent.
