Uber Presents Helicopter Rides to School Championship Recreation

The School Soccer Championship recreation is hours away, and followers going to the sport in Arlington, Texas, now have a option to keep away from recreation-night time visitors. Uber, the experience-hailing app, is teaming up with an organization referred to as Epic Helicopters, to offer on-demand helicopters for Monday night time’s recreation. Right here is how the service works: Customers within the Dallas-Fort Value space pop open the Uber app, choose "UberCHOPPER," press "set decide up location" after which press the request button. An Uber driver then picks them up and takes them to a helipad in Dallas. After the sport between Oregon and Ohio State, an Uber driver will give them a journey residence. The fee is $350 per individual. Why is Uber providing this service? "We need to welcome followers from throughout the nation by displaying them every little thing Dallas has to supply from the most effective view on the town," Uber stated in a press release. That $350 cost doesn’t embrace a ticket to the sport.
