Miami Marlins partner with Uber for designated drop-off, pick-up lot

Partnership includes other events at Marlins Park


MIAMI – Uber is partnering with the Miami Marlins to help fans get to and from Marlins Park.

The team announced Wednesday that it has partnered with the ride-sharing service to provide designated Uber drop-off and pick-up locations for all Marlins home games.

The designated lot is located near Northwest Fifth Street and Northwest 14th Avenue.

"We are very excited with our new partnership with Uber as we continue to find ways to improve the overall fan experience at Marlins Park," Marlins President David Samson said in a statement.

The partnership will also be in place for other events at Marlins Park.

Uber drivers with a military background will also benefit from the partnership.

Riders will be able to nominate service members or veterans who provide quality service. Highly-rated driver partners will be recognized at Monday Marlins games for the rest of the season. They'll also receive four tickets.
