Detroit Lions partner with ride-hailing service Uber

- The Detroit Lions and Uber are offering a special pickup and drop-off point near Ford Field for those using the ride-hailing service for the team's home games.

The exclusive pickup and drop-off point will be along the northbound E Fisher Service Drive, between Woodward and John R.

The Lions say fans using Uber on gamedays also will be eligible for special Lions' giveaways. And a promotion code is being offered for first-time users.

The code is LIONSDET and is valid for one free ride up to $20.

"Uber is teaming up with the Lions to make sure a trip to and from Ford Field is hassle free," Uber Michigan General Manager Sagar Shah said in a news release. "Lions fans can skip the parking lot-just open the Uber app, push a button, and get a ride."
