Start Your Engines: Abu Dhabi Grand Prix’s Right Around The Corner!

The biggest event in the UAE is coming up this weekend, and we’re here to make sure that your Abu Dhabi Grand Prix experience is the best ever! As the Official Transport Technology partner of the Yas Marina Circuit, we’re giving all our riders 30% off all trips to and from the venue from the 25th to the 29th of November.

And that’s not all: we’re also partnering with the hottest Grand Prix weekend venues and giving away some goodies (see ‘Weekend Parties’ section below). To make things even sweeter, a few lucky riders will be able to get to the race via UberCHOPPER, the region’s first Uber helicopter that will be doing trips between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.


This year, we’re pulling out all the stops to ensure that you get on and off the island as smoothly as possible. While you can enjoy the 30% discount during all 5 days, we’ll have a dedicated pickup and drop-off location at the Yas Links Golf Club on the days of the races when traffic will be heaviest (27th, 28th, and 29th). Your drivers will be well aware of this location, so be sure to request an Uber from there on race days. A fleet of shuttle buses will continuously be doing pickups and drop-offs across the circuit, so you’ll be able to catch one right across the street near West Gate 20 / the North Grandstand.. Check out the map below:


Dynamic pricing: As always, Uber strives to be a reliable ride, even during the weekend craziness. Surge pricing will be in effect during periods of peak demand. You’ll always be able to see and confirm current pricing in the app.


  1. Open or download the Uber app for iOS or Android
  2. Enter Abu Dhabi GP* while signing up, or in the promotions section of the app
  3. Request your Uber and enjoy 30% off 🙂

*Promo valid up to AED300 for trips beginning or ending at the Yas Marina Circuit. Valid from November 25th until 4 AM on November 30th. Uber’s official pickup and drop off area on race days (November 27th, 28th, and 29th) is at the Yas Links Golf Club. You can conveniently take a shuttle between the Golf Club and the circuit.


This year we are taking the Grand Prix to new heights. Skip the traffic altogether and get to or from Yas Island via UberCHOPPER. You can book a chopper ride with our friends at Falcon Aviation using the Uber app Friday – Sunday. Find out more HERE.


Grand Prix weekend isn’t just about the races; there are a ton of parties that’ll keep your adrenaline running all night, and we’re partnering with the best of the best!


Heading to the After Race Concerts? Uber will be available around the clock to make sure you get to and from the shows safe and sound.


The Podium Lounge A-List After-Parties, famous for their track-side celebrations return to Yas Island. Having hosted sell-out, celebrity packed events at the Yas Viceroy since 2013, the high octane Podium Lounge event is expanding to indoor entertainment venue du Forum, which will undergo a dramatic transformation into a glamorous ultra lounge featuring a dizzying overhead catwalk and VIP balcony suites offering a magical party experience.



One of the most happening and scenic nightspots in the city, Iris will be even more popular on the Grand Prix weekend. Expect international DJs and the best mixes in the city, as well as superb views across the marina and easy access to and from the rest of Yas Island.



MAD on Yas Island is a state of the art space, featuring 360 degree projection mapping, huge animated LED screens, an exceptional sound system, beautiful light shows and a luxurious VIP area. Setting a new norm to Abu Dhabi’s hospitality standards, the biggest indoor nightlife venue in the UAE will host entertainment shows, fun themed parties and the biggest international names in electronic dance and popular music.



Make sure you come and say hi to the Uber team at Yas Links. We’d love to see you!

See you track side,
Team Uber UAE
