ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Athletics officials with the University of New Mexico have partnered with ride-booking service Uber to provide fans with transportation to and from University Stadium for all home football games.

The university made the announcement Thursday, saying the three-year partnership will extend into the 2019 football season.

An official pick-up and drop-off zone will be established across from the stadium’s north entrances. Signs will be placed throughout the stadium to help fans locate the area.

Uber’s general manager for New Mexico, Steve Thompson, says the ride-booking service is thrilled about the partnership. He says it will provide a reliable transportation option on game day.

The partnership was secured by UNM Athletics’ multimedia rights holder, Learfield’s Lobo Sports Properties.
