Avoid the penalty box – take an Uber!

This Saturday, Brooklyn gets a taste of what’s to come with the first NHL game in the history of the borough. This may only be pre-season, but we’re looking forward to seeing the Islanders take over Brooklyn for the first time ever. The Islanders won’t be back for good until 2015, so we’re Ubering out to Barclays to catch the action!

A few tips to ensure a smooth pickup from Barclays:

WHERE SHOULD I REQUEST A PICKUP The best spot for a pickup is across Atlantic Avenue, on the corner of Fort Greene Place, located between Pathmark and Target. Drop your pin along Fort Greene Place and coordinate with your driver for a seamless pickup. In the Uber app you can contact your driver, and check his/her name, car type and license plate before getting in.


WHEN SHOULD I REQUEST Open the Uber app about 10 – 15 minutes before you need to be picked up. You’ll be able to see the closest drivers, and request to fit your schedule.

As always, if you have any questions reach out to us at SupportNY@uber.com or on twitter at @Uber_NYC. See you at the rink!
