Your 2019 Stampede ride guide
Stampede is one of Calgary’s biggest events of the year and will take place from July 5 – 14. With over 1 million people visiting the city, we expect there will be more requests than usual—especially during the evening hours. Here are a few tips to have a smooth ride, every time.
How to ride like a pro at Stampede
When you’re ready to go home, head to one of the three pickup zones. Follow the Uber signs or check your app for instructions.
Hang tight! Stay on the curb and allow your driver to drive towards you at the Uber Pickup Zone. Remember to check for cars when crossing roads and respect road signs.
There’s no need to be a lone ranger. Ride with friends and split the fare instead.
Wrangle up the squad and request an UberXL. Travel conveniently to the rodeo with up to 6 people in one vehicle.
Before getting into the vehicle, make sure the licence plate and model of the car matches the information shown in the app.
The best way to retrieve an item you may have left in a vehicle is to contact your driver.
The Uber Pickup Zones
This year, we have 3 dedicated Uber Pickup Zones—North, West, and South. Keep an eye out for signage near the pickup zones.
Just west of the Concert Tent, there are pickup zones on 1st St SE between 10th Ave and 12th Ave, and on 10th Ave between 1st St SE and Macleod Trail.
This pickup zone is west of Cowboys Casino and the Saddledome. It’s located on the east side of Macleod Trail just north of the NB Victoria Park/Stampede C Train Station.
This pickup zone is southwest of the Stampede Grandstand. Keep an eye out for Uber signs in the parking lot.
Ride like a pro
Over 1 million people will be visiting our city for Stampede. It’ll be busy! Be sure to stay on the curb while waiting for your driver, and double check the licence plate matches the information in your app.
Tips for being a 5-star rider
At Uber, we foster a community of respect for both riders and drivers alike. To keep your account in a good standing and to earn 5-stars every ride, take a peek at our Community Guidelines.
Your driver’s car is their personal vehicle. While we understand that accidents happen, please be respectful of their property. Keep their vehicles clean and under no circumstances is alcohol and/or illegal substances permitted during your trip.
Keep wait time for your driver to a minimum by being ready to ride when they pull up to the curb.
Before exiting the vehicle, take a quick scan of the seat. Don’t forget your cellphone—or your cowboy hat!
