Zinzinnati, Your Uber Is Arriving!

Oktoberfest Uber

GETTING TO AND FROM OKTOBERFEST

Keep the party going in Zinzinnati this weekend! From the Chicken Dance to the Running of the Wieners and everywhere in between, a safe, convenient ride is always just a tap away.

If you’re looking to catch a ride to or from Oktoberfest, here’s what you need to know:

  • Requesting a pickup on or around any roads that are closed due to the festivities will severely impact ETAs
  • Your best bet for a smooth pickup is to request after walking a few minutes away from the crowds

MAKE IT A WINNING PICK UP

After a few das boots, the night may get blurry. Keep your ride crystal clear by following these steps:

  • Confirm your driver. Call your driver if needed, and double check their name and license plate number before you go.
  • No IOUs. Fare split your ride with friends and pay just a fraction of the flat rate (we’ll even do the math for you)!

KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT

SO HOW DOES DYNAMIC PRICING WORK?
Our goal is to be the most reliable ride on the road, and sometimes we see such high demand that the number of available cars gets tight. With dynamic pricing, Uber rates increase to get more cars on the road and ensure reliability during the busiest times. When enough cars are on the road, prices go back down to normal levels. Important details:

  • You’ll always be notified in BIG, BOLD print if dynamic pricing is in effect.
  • The dynamic confirmation screen requires you to type in the multiplier to ensure you know what to expect.

 

NO SURPRISES

Use the Fare Quote option in the Uber app to estimate your fare before you make your request. If dynamic pricing is in effect, your fare quote will always take the current rates into account.
