With some Uber drivers promising to boycott transportation to Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, and game day parking as far as a mile from Levi’s Stadium, pedicab operators expect to make good cash on Super Bowl Sunday as they transport fans to and from the stadium.
Bicycle rickshaw operators will converge in the city of Santa Clara from all around the Bay Area Sunday to augment transportation around the stadium. Because not shuttle services will be available, football fans can either walk to the stadium, or ride a pedicab.
During major events at Levi’s Stadium, pedicab operators charge around $40 per mile per passenger. I’m told that patrons can expect around double that price on Super Bowl Sunday.
Enjoy the game! Thank you to Golden Gate Pedicab and Eco City Cycles for help with background. Other transportation resources:
- CHP Super Bowl 50 traffic safety plan.
- City of Santa Clara Super Bowl 50 events and updates, including road closures
- Several roads around downtown Mountain View Caltrain will be closed to car traffic on Super Bowl Sunday. Mountain View police say most will be open to pedestrians (and maybe cyclists), though additional access restrictions may take place on Central Expressway at Castro Street due to anticipated heavy pedestrian traffic.
- If you plan to ride light rail to the game, you must purchase an event ticket ahead of time.
