This morning I gave a ride to the Marketing Director for Mercedes-Benz stadium. She told me that not only is Lyft their official ride share partner, but that there are plans to geofence Uber requests out of the stadium with cops ready to give tickets to Uber drivers trying to pick up.
While I’m all for better organization for these event pick ups, I feel this high level of fuckery will not turn out like they want…
Yeah, try telling people that they can’t use Uber to get home and they’ll just walk out of the fence and request their ride anyway, creating the madness they are trying to avoid.
I’m sure this will change, but I wanted to give everyone the heads up since Uber/Lyft tells us nothing.
