Sporting venue pro tips

  • When leaving the stadium, check the ‘Notifications’ section of your app. There you’ll find more details on the exact location of the Uber pickup lounge.
  • Remember, with large crowds comes large amounts of traffic. Please be patient as you request an Uber. Your driver will do their best to get to you as quickly and safely as possible.
  • Demand will be high throughout the city, especially at sporting venues. Lots of fans will be requesting a ride at the same time. If you don’t need to ride immediately after the game, wait for traffic to lighten and the demand for rides to go down.
