Uber Drivers Threaten Strike During Super Bowl 50

Posted on February 5, 2016

Super Bowl 50 arrives bearing gifts for San Francisco. Uber, an official partner of the Big Game, can use taxi stands when ferrying passengers to and from the various events, including the parties in San Francisco and the game itself at Levi's Stadium. That's a nice perk for Uber drivers, some of whom are organizing to make sure no driver takes advantage of it.

If you’re looking for a ride to or from the Super Bowl, the world’s largest unofficial taxi company might not be an option.

Some Uber drivers in the greater San Francisco Bay area say they’ll be boycotting the roads during the big game on Sunday, in protest of the ride hailing giant’s wage policies.
