Cleveland, Your 2016 Baseball Season Is Arriving Now


We’ve been waiting for the return of baseball season in Cleveland for months, and the day has finally arrived! This year’s Opening Day game sold out in 40 minutes, so it’s too late to buy a ticket. But, we know this is Tribe Town and the whole city will come out to celebrate!

To get you suited up for the season, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Homage. Enter to win $100 worth of their latest and greatest baseball apparel so you can look like the true Cleveland baseball fan that you are!


Here’s the pitch: Sign in to Twitter, follow @Uber_Ohio, and retweet the provided message. Or, tag a friend on our @Uber_Ohio Instagram post. The winner will be selected and notified on Tuesday, April 5th at 5pm.

If you aren’t our lucky winner, you can still get back into the swing of things for the season ahead. Make a run to Homage’s new location in Cleveland to check out even more Tribe tees and tanks.



If you’re on deck for today’s downtown festivities, we want your Uber rides to get you where you need to go without a single error. Check out this lineup of Uber Pro Tips to ensure an all-star experience!

  • Estimate Your Fare: No surprises here! You can always estimate your fare before requesting your ride.
  • Make sure you are in the right Uber: Once a driver-partner is headed toward you, take a peek in the app for great info to make sure you get in the right car! Driver name, make + model, license plate number…oh my!
  • Surge Drop: Requesting a ride during our super busy time? Well, what goes up, must come down. Have some time to stick around? Get notified when Surge pricing ends.

  • Split Your Fare: Sometimes math is hard. Uber isn’t! Sharing a ride with a friend or 5? Share the fare!
  • Share Your ETA: Heading out to meet your buddies? Wanna let Mom know you’re on your way? Here’s how.
  • Be an Upstanding Citizen: A great reason to ride with Uber is after a few drinks out. Party before & after the ride but please, not in the car.

  • Ratings should be based on your driver’s performance and quality of service, not the fare. Had an awesome experience? Give your driver a virtual high 5 by opening your app and tapping that 5th star.
  • REMEMBER: Drivers don’t control surge pricing. If you have concerns about the price, we’re always happy to review your fare! Please reply to your ride receipt or write to us directly at
