DALLAS (AP) - Ride-sharing service Uber offered a novel way to get to college football’s national championship game: by helicopter.

Company spokeswoman Debee Hancock told The Dallas Morning News that 20 fans took the UberChopper air service to AT&T; Stadium for the first College Football Playoff national championship game Monday night. Each paid $350 to be airlifted over traffic to the stadium in Arlington.

Uber teamed up with Epic Helicopters to offer the service. Passengers hailed a private car through Uber for a ride to a helipad, where they boarded a helicopter for an aerial tour of Dallas before being dropped off at the stadium to watch Ohio State play Oregon.
