Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
Houston’s most popular professional sports team is proud to be the first NFL team to partner with Uber Technologies to help Texans fans get home safe on gameday.
By entering the promotional code TEXANS in the Uber app (that can be downloaded from iTunes or Google play), first-time Uber users will receive up to $20 off their first ride anywhere in the Houston area. In addition to having a ride ready within minutes, fans can get home safely from their neighborhood bar, tailgate party or NRG Stadium.
Fans at NRG Stadium can also use the official Uber pickup area located adjacent to NRG Center, northeast of the stadium at Fannin Street. The designated area will make it easy for riders to tap the app and connect with drivers quickly after the game.
“We want our fans to have a great time at NRG Stadium, and that includes responsible alcohol consumption before, during and after our games,” said Jamey Rootes, President of the Houston Texans. “We have a comprehensive set of initiatives to encourage responsibility and this provides us with another way to promote safe and reliable transportation to and from Texans games.”
"Uber is proud to partner with the Texans to give fans the ability to enjoy each game without having to get behind the wheel," said Sarfraz Maredia, General Manager, Uber Houston. "Football is a part of our DNA in Texas and we're thrilled to help enhance the gameday experience for our fellow Texans fans."
Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through its platform, Uber make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more small business opportunities for drivers. From Uber's founding in 2009 to its launches in over 200 cities in 45 countries today, Uber's rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer. uber.com
