Fans departing from MetLife Stadium can utilize new, convenient pick-up location
EAST RUTHERFORD – With Uber as the preferred rideshare partner for all events at MetLife Stadium, including Jets and Giants games, fans now have a new, easy, and affordable way to depart from home games this season. Fans looking to utilize Uber services at MetLife Stadium will be directed to the officially designated Uber Pick-Up Zone located in Lot E, indicated through both a special in-app feature and customized Uber signs on location.
To kick off the partnership, Uber aired 15-second television spots featuring local Jets and Giants super fan driver-partners. These will continue to be shown locally throughout the NFL season.
"MetLife Stadium continually searches for new ways to improve our guest experience," said MetLife Stadium President and CEO Ron VanDeVeen. "Our partnership with Uber does this by providing another convenient transportation option for guests attending Giants and Jets games at our venue."
"Giants and Jets fans have a lot to look forward to this season," said Uber General Manager Sarfraz Maredia. "As the Preferred Rideshare Partner of MetLife Stadium, the Jets, and the Giants, Uber is excited to help fans make the most of gameday, providing access to affordable, reliable options at the touch of a button."
