Uber will become the team's official ride-sharing partner, and beginning on Sept. 18, will host a designated Uber Pick-Up Drop-Off Zone for all home games. This service will enhance fan experience by allowing fans to easily get in and out of games, alleviate traffic and promote alternative transportation options.

"Leveraging the convenience and reliability of Uber's technology, we'll be giving fans easily accessible transportation options before and after every game."
The designated Uber Pick-Up & Drop-Off Zone is a ride-share lot located at the Prince George's County Sports Complex, adjacent to the stadium's parking lots.
- The Uber Pick-Up & Drop-Off Zone will open for drop-offs four hours prior to kickoff. When requesting a ride to the stadium, fans should enter the following address as their destination:
Prince George's County Sports & Learning Complex
8001 Sheriff Rd.

- Following games, fans can enter the Uber Pick-Up & Drop-Off Zone, order an Uber and meet their driver in a specified colored zone for better access and convenience. *Fans will only be able to request a pickup at the Uber Pick-Up & Drop-Off Zone. *
"Continuing to improve the game day experience is paramount and we see Uber's ride-sharing service playing an important role with us," said Terry Bateman, Executive Vice President, Washington Redskins. "We are excited to partner together to better serve our fans."
