OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Thunder has partnered with Uber to give fans a safe and convenient way to and from Thunder games.

Starting with their home opener on Friday, fans can use the designated pickup and drop-off lot located at Southwest 2nd Street and South Harvey Avenue.

“We are excited to partner with Uber to provide fans more options for getting to and from the arena on game nights,” said Dan Mahoney, vice president of Broadcasting and Corporate Communications for the Thunder. “Our fans now have a great option to get in and out of downtown quickly and safely from the new Uber lot without having to worry about parking or traffic.”
