Uber offers helicopters to CFP final

DALLAS -- Ride-sharing service Uber offered a novel way to get to the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T: 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 title 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.
