New Jersey can be a tough place to drive. After all, the Garden State is known for having some of the country’s most aggressive drivers. On certain days when you don’t want to be stressed, like game days for example, it’s always a good idea to book an Uber to get where you want to go. It would even be best to get an Uber on a day out spent bar hopping in Jersey Shore.
What makes Uber great in New Jersey?
Whether you’re a visitor or a resident of the Garden State, there’s no denying the allure of Uber. The car service may have started in neighboring New York City, but ever since it came to New Jersey, it has become a popular mode of transport. There are good reasons for that too.
- Partnerships with places where events are held
Hockey, soccer, and college sporting events can draw a crowd. One of the places that hosts such events is the Prudential Center in Newark. Whatever the results of the game, you’d like to get a ride home safely. Uber has partnered with the multi-purpose indoor arena to ensure a car picks you up.
You have to take yourself to the Uber Zone to wait for your driver. That designated lane is found on Edison Place, which is located between McCarter Highway and Mulberry Street. It is marked by an Uber signage so you know you’re in the right place. It also serves as the drop-off point if you’re taking an Uber to the Prudential Center.
Uber has also partnered with MetLife Stadium, the home of football and concerts. The sports stadium in East Rutherford is the home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets, two popular teams playing in the NFL.
Meeting your driver is done at Lot E, located off West Peripheral Road, which is outside the stadium’s Verizon entrance, if you are coming from a football game. On the other hand, you will have to go to Lot D, which is still outside the Verizon entrance of the stadium, if you’re coming from a concert.
- Ride requests to and from Newark Liberty International Airport
Going to the airport can be a stressful affair. If you want none of the drama whether you’re flying in or out of New Jersey, Uber is here to help you out. There will be drivers waiting at the Rideshare Hold Lot so there’s a guarantee that you don’t have to wait long once you’ve booked a ride.
You might have to wait a bit if you’re booking a ride to the airport since your driver’s arrival depends on where exactly they are when you requested a pick up. Then again, you probably won’t have to wait long given the number of Uber drivers serving the state of New Jersey.
- Partnerships with New Jersey hotspots
Uber has partnered with the township of Evesham and Old Bridge to pick up riders coming from bars and restaurants in the area headed to homes also in the area. This service runs from 9pm to 2pm.
Uber has also partnered with Hackensack University Medical Center to allow employees, patients and their families to get a ride without any hassle. Keep in mind that there are six different pickup locations at the hospital’s campus.
Uber is a great service, and whether you’re from New Jersey or not, there’s no denying the benefits to booking the car service. So whether you’re headed to a game or need to fly out of the state, use Uber.
