By Community | April 19, 2018

Leeds United have teamed up with Uber to help reduce ground congestion on matchdays.

The English Championship football club have joined forces with the taxi firm to encourage fans to leave their cars at home and grab a cab instead when travelling to Elland Road.

The partnership will kick off this weekend ahead of the Yorkshire derby with Barnsley.

Dedicated Uber pick up and drop off points will be in place for the clash.

Tom Elvidge, Uber’s UK General Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Leeds United and have some very ambitious plans to help them create the best fan experience possible, while helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality.”

Leeds United Managing Director, Angus Kinnear, added: “This is a really exciting partnership for the club and we hope the fans will enjoy it. Getting to and from the stadium will now be a seamless experience and we’re exploring ways to make help fans travel for away games as well. Leaving the area after a game in private cars can lead to congestion and long wait times, so this deal will really help cut down congestion in the area.”
