HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Taking an Uber or taxi cab during Super Bowl week festivities?

Here are a few things you need to know to make your travels easier:

UBERing during Super Bowl

UBER has only one designated drop-off and pickup point at Super Bowl Live on Crawford, between Rusk and Capitol. It is directly behind Marriott Marquis.

UBER and Super Bowl have created a "geo-fence" around Super Bowl Live. When riders open the app within the clean zone, they will not be able to order an UBER. Instead, the UBER app will direct them to the designated drop-off/pick-up zone.

The location is at the Super Bowl LIVE Welcome Center on Rusk Street between Crawford Street, and Avenida de las Americas. Read more

How to hail a taxi during Super Bowl

Taxis are approved to provide rides to various locations downtown and around Super Bowl LIVE.

If you're jumping from event to event in downtown, $6 taxicab rides anywhere downtown by any taxi company in Houston ("Six in the City"). Taxicab stands are located around downtown or find one on the City of Houston's new rideshare app, ARRO.
