Illinois’ Most Popular Uber Destination Is No Surprise
It shouldn't have taken you too long to guess this one.
WGN - It’s no surprise that Cubs fans venture to Wrigley Field in droves, filling Metra trains, El cars, and buses, but unlike mass transit options, Uber charges users a higher surge fare during busy periods. So that’s one thing to keep in mind if you plan to see the Cubs play at the Friendly Confines.
The list excludes airports and other major transit stations so this was obviously going to be the answer. I myself contributed to the number of Uber trips to Wrigley at least 3 times this past season.
If you've ever tried to drive into Wrigley and park your car you know how much of an (expensive) pain it can be. That's why I absolutely 100% subscribe to the Uber method. My personal advice for getting to a Cubs game is to take the Metra to the Irving Park stop, get off and order that Uber. The whole trip will cost you less than 20 bucks. It's easier, cheaper, and you can enjoy a few adult beverages during the game and not worry about driving home.
If you were wondering about Wisconsin's most popular destination, it's very similar to ours. Home of the Brewers, Miller Park, was their most requested ride. It looks like no one wants to drive to a baseball game.
