Uber 3 Tip Hat-Trick for the UC

The countdown to the first puck drop of the season has begun. While you’re waiting in anticipation, we’ve got a 3 tip hat-trick to ensure that your ride to or from the United Center with Uber is as convenient and seamless as possible.  

1.) Uber will be in hot demand tonight for all car types but particularly TAXI. Remember that BLACK cars will be SIGNIFICANTLY more reliable.

2.) Start requesting as soon as you’re leaving your seat. Give your driver a bit of time to fight the crowds, and ensure you won’t be waiting in the cold.

3.) There is a lot of foot traffic right outside the stadium. We suggest giving your driver a call to coordinate a pick up spot about a block or two away from the perimeter of the building. Remember, you can also set your pickup location a block away!

Our goal is to make sure your biggest worry of the night is who will win the face off and not your ride home.

If you have a friend in your group that hasn’t signed up for Uber yet, they can use the code BHAWKS13 to request their first ride and you can jump in to ride in style (and warmth) for free. This code is only valid for new clients in Chicago. Maximum discount is $30. Offer will expire at midnight.

Big #UberBHawks fan? Tell us more!

Drop us a tweet letting us know why you’re pumped for the return of hockey or tweet us a picture of you riding Uber to the Madhouse, and you could win a Free Uber. Use the hashtag #UberBHAWKS and you’ll be entered to win. We’ll RT our favorite responses!
