Nashville, Tenn. (January 24, 2017) - The Nashville Predators have announced a partnership with Uber, officially debuting on Jan. 24 in advance of the 7 p.m. game against the Buffalo Sabres. The new relationship will improve the fan experience by introducing the Uber Safe Ride Zone where event attendees can wait for their Uber to arrive, adjacent to a dedicated pickup and drop-off area. These additions ensure that fans have access to a safe, convenient and worry-free means of transportation both to and from Bridgestone Arena events and Nashville Predators games.
"We are proud to partner with Uber to offer a safe and convenient ride to and from Bridgestone Arena," Executive Vice President and CRO Chris Junghans said. "Our partnership speaks to the level of service and convenience we'll offer all patrons traveling to and from an event, or simply coming downtown. Riders can expect designated pick-up and drop-off areas, a safe and convenient waiting area and exclusive benefits for our most passionate fans - Predators Season-Ticket Holders."
The Uber Safe Ride Zone is located next to Tavern '96 outside the SoBro Entrance at the corner of Demonbreun Street and 5th Avenue. Fans can bring their last drink of the night into the Safe Ride Zone as they request a ride home and relax while tracking their driver's arrival on the app's map. Riders will then meet their drivers along 5th Avenue in the dedicated pickup area.
"We've seen fans count on Uber for a reliable ride to and from Bridgestone Arena since Uber launched in Nashville three years ago, but this partnership will make it even more convenient," Uber Nashville General Manager Persis Elavia said. "Whether you want to skip the parking lot or need a responsible postgame solution for getting home, it's as simple as tapping a button."
As another benefit of the partnership, new riders can sign up for Uber and use the code BRIDGESTONEUBER for $20 off their first trip to Bridgestone Arena.
