Drop-offs and Pick-ups

When you arrive at Raymond James Stadium, have your driver go to the drop off location in the southbound right turn lane on Himes Ave, approaching the entrance to Lot 4 which is in close proximity to the main entry gates.

For pick-ups following the event, Uber drivers must identify themselves at the corner of MLK and Himes Ave. The best way to enter the designated pick-up area is coming south on Himes Ave or east on MLK Blvd from Dale Mabry, as southbound Himes Ave will be closed to through traffic.

Please exercise caution when you get behind the wheel and watch your BAC. Your blood alcohol concentration is personal depending on your gender, weight, and how much has been consumed in a period of time. Play it safe!
