Pro Tip: How to Uber to and from EDCNY

Hey Headliners! We’re excited to be a part of this weekend’s Electric Daisy Carnival at MetLife Stadium. If you’re planning on riding Uber to or from the event, here are our tips for ensuring a smooth trip:

GETTING TO EDCNY

Request your ride as usual and let your driver know you’ll be heading to MetLife Stadium. Drivers will be able to make drop-offs on West Peripheral Road, which is adjacent to the stadium.

Remember, you can always get an idea of what a fare will cost before your ride. To do so, open your app and select your car preference and pick-up location, then tap ‘Fare Quote’ to enter your destination and see the range of what similar trips typically cost.

The address for MetLife Stadium is 1 MetLife Stadium Dr, East Rutherford, NJ 07073.

Keep in mind that our fares can fluctuate for similar routes depending on traffic, tolls, and special route requests.

GETTING HOME FROM EDCNY

For all trips leaving MetLife Stadium, there will be special rates in effect, including flat rates to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. You will only be able to request a ride from the Uber tent in Lot D of the MetLife Stadium parking lot. You will not be able to request a ride from inside the festival. Please see our special rates below:

HOW TO FARE SPLIT

The odds are high that you’ll be rolling to EDCNY with friends, so why not split the fare for your ride?

To split a fare, follow these steps:

  1. Request a ride
  2. Once connected to a driver, tap the “up arrow” icon next to your driver’s info
  3. Select “Split Fare”
  4. Choose your friends
  5. Tap “Send”

Your friends will have to:

  1. Tap the link in the text message from Uber
  2. Your friends who don’t have an Uber account will be prompted to download the app and sign up
  3. Your Uber-savvy friends will be taken directly to the Uber app
  4. Your friends will confirm they want to split your fare
