Uber offers helicopter rides to college championship game in Arlington for $350 a person

January 12, 2015 - 3:44 PM

DALLAS - Uber is offering a novel way to get to college football's national championship game: by helicopter.

The ride-hailing app will help fans avoid the traffic by getting to AT&T Stadium by air for the first College Football Playoff national championship Monday night. The fare? $350 per person.

Uber has teamed up with Epic Helicopters to offer UberCHOPPER. Those looking to fly to the stadium will be picked up by a private car and then transported to a helipad. They then will get a tour of Dallas before being dropped off at the stadium in the Dallas suburb of Arlington to watch Ohio State and Oregon face off.

Those taking the helicopter, though, must have their own game tickets — they aren't part of Uber's deal.
