New Jersey Devils, your Uber is officially arriving now
We’re excited to announce that Uber is now the official rideshare partner of Prudential Center, home of the New Jersey Devils, to help fans get to and from the action with new designated pickup and drop-off areas.
From hockey games to epic rock concerts, Prudential Center is New Jersey’s home of sports and entertainment. Now, we’re making it easier than ever to get there and back.
“Uber and the Devils together is a win-win partnership for Newark,” said Newark Mayor Ras Baraka. “It increases reliable affordable transportation choices for Prudential Center visitors and provides an incentive for people to leave their cars at home.”
When you’ve got tickets to the event of a lifetime, transportation shouldn’t ruin the experience. To make getting to and from Prudential Center easier, we’ll have a designated Uber pickup and drop-off area east of Investors Bank Tower on Edison Place, so fans can connect with a ride easily before and after an event.
“With nearly two million visitors through our doors each year, we rely on our partners both inside and outside of the building to provide the same world-class experience that we strive for each night,” said Adam Davis, Chief Revenue Officer, New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center. “We are excited to team with Uber – a pioneer in the industry – to give our fans another safe, dependable option to get to and from The Rock.”
