Marathon Weekend in Philly

On Sunday, thousands will hit the streets to prove what they’re made of at the 2013 Philadelphia Marathon. Whether you’re in it for the whole 26 or are going to cheer someone on, we want you to know the best places for pick ups an drop offs to make Marathon weekend a smooth ride.


  • We highly suggest you request a ride above Spring Garden. This will be a short walk from the finish line, but will be far enough from closed roads!
  • Expect longer ETAs post-race! There will be a ton of traffic as runners and fans look to exit the race area – be patient!
  • Tap the Up Arrow icon to contact your driver. A call or text is always worth it to ensure you’re meeting your driver at the right place.
