Integration allows fans to arrange transportation after ticket purchase, making it easier than ever before to discover and attend events.
San Francisco (July 29, 2015) – StubHub, the world’s largest ticket marketplace, today announced a new app integration with Uber, the nation’s leading on-demand ride-hailing service.
After completing a ticket purchase on StubHub, fans will now be able to set a reminder to arrange transportation through Uber when the event is imminent. Users who purchase tickets within two hours of the event will be able to order an Uber directly from the order confirmation page. In both cases, StubHub will automatically share the venue location with Uber.
“At StubHub, we are obsessed with thinking of new ways to create a frictionless event experience. Going to a game or concert involves so much more than just purchasing a ticket — there are a number logistics around the event that fans need to make decisions about,” said Parag Vaish, Head of Mobile. “Our integration with Uber takes one of the most frustrating parts of event-going — transportation — and makes the process infinitely easier. This integration marks another step towards StubHub’s vision to become an end-to-end live entertainment service, moving users from discovery to purchasing to planning.”
The Uber integration will be available within the StubHub iOS and Android apps in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Additionally, first-time Uber users will receive a voucher for $20 off their ride. Fans who purchase tickets at one of StubHub’s Last-Minute Service locations will also receive a promotional code to redeem their discount.
StubHub is the world’s largest ticket marketplace, enabling fans the choice to buy and sell tickets to tens of thousands of sports, concert, theater and other live entertainment events on desktop, tablet or mobile, as well as the ability to discover local live music through its iOS app StubHub Music. Offering a superior fan experience at its core, StubHub reinvented the ticket resale market in 2000 and continues to lead it through innovation through numerous industry firsts, including the introduction of the industry’s first ticketing application, first interactive seat mapping tool and the first live entertainment Fan Rewards program. The market leader, StubHub is partners with major organizations and brands, including more than 60 teams in MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS and NCAA, plus ESPN, NBC Digital, AEG and Paciolan. Throughout North America and Europe, StubHub provides the total end-to-end event going experience that is the way ticket buying should be.
