Stampede park

Instructions for drivers

During the Calgary Stampede, people will be looking for rides to and from Stampede Park at all hours of the day. We’ve set up a dedicated Uber Pickup Zone and driver pickup lane to make pickups a breeze.

Requests at Stampede Park

How pickups work

We’ve introduced a dedicated Uber Pickup Zone across the street from Cowboys Casino to make pickups at Stampede easier.

How it works:

  1. When you receive a request, enter the furthest left lane (south) on 11 Ave. SE at 4 St. SE—this is the driver pickup lane. Please do not enter the lane without a ride request.
  2. Stay in the pickup lane and move forward as other vehicles exit the queue. Please respect all traffic personnel and signage.
  3. Hang tight! Your rider will meet you curbside as you move closer to the Uber Pickup Zone.

Pro tip: Use 9 Ave. SE to navigate to the driver pickup lane. We strongly recommend avoiding 12 Ave. SE.

Rides to Stampede Park

Dropoff tips for drivers

When dropping off riders at Stampede Park, make sure to stop in a safe area and respect all traffic rules. Drive slowly! There’ll be pedestrians in the area heading to and from the Stampede grounds.

Pro tips

Keep in contact with your rider

The busy traffic during Stampede can cause stress for both you and your rider. We recommend texting or calling your rider when you’re having trouble finding them or when the traffic will cause your ETA to be higher than expected.

Confirm your rider's name

It helps to confirm you have the right rider by asking for their first name and checking it in your app. If you do pick up the wrong person, reach out to our support team at help.uber.com and we'll help sort it out.

No cowboy hats left behind

Did a rider leave something your car? You can snap a picture of any lost items and get in contact with the rider through your app. You’ll receive $15 once the item is returned.
