Transportation tips, timing advice, traffic apps and more recommendations you should consider.
Super Bowl 50 is coming in a week and if you’re from the Bay Area you might be thinking there are going to be some chaotic situations. Make sure you’re prepared for America’s biggest event and its city consequences like traffic problems, crowded transportation options and places (bars, restaurants, streets, stores, etc) and expensive rates. Here are some simple but useful tips that will help you:
1. First, one way to survive this event is by simply staying at your home. You can also watch the game at home; you just don’t need to go out to encounter any chaotic situation. Make sure you have everything you got before you do that. So, do some grocery shopping first.
2. Even if you don’t have tickets for the event, you can always go outside the stadium and support your favorite team! This is a very common thing to do, join the party, doesn’t matter if you are not a football fan, you can hear the show from outside! Yes! Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars (maybe Rihanna) for free! Have fun with your family or friends in the crowd.
3. If you need to go to work, do some shopping or any business you can find alternative routes before from your main point to your destination. You can use Google maps or the famous app Waze to get through this.
4. If your friends invite you to watch the game at a bar and don’t want to go because of how crowded it will be, simply tell them that you’re sick or that you have some important errands to do. Of course, they probably won’t believe the latter because, who has errands to do on Superbowl Sunday? But I’m sure you’ll manage.
5. Do you want to go out but not to drive? You can take a stress-free ride asking for a private transportation service like ShuttleWizard, the famous Uber or Lyft. You just need to make your reservation with anticipation (hours or even days of anticipation) depending on your plans, distance and location. If you are about to travel that day and need to arrive early to the airport be sure to be prepared everything and be on time.
6. Get traffic alerts. You can receive comments, advice and routes from other people using traffic Apps from your smartphone. Also, checking comments at your social media (tweets and facebook posts) can be fruitful.
7. If you live or own a business near the Stadium, you have two choices: secure your house, apartment or local (to keep people away). Or you can make some extra bugs by selling crafts & food, renting a room or your parking lot for this day, you’ll be surprised of how much money you made after the event.
Whether you’re a football fan or not, you can’t deny how huge of an event is the Super Bowl. So huge, that it’s hard to do anything outside because of how cramped every place will be. But that just proves how huge of an impact the Super Bowl has made to America, if you love football, you probably won’t mind very much everything else that has been mentioned. If you’re not, that’s alright, you can still find ways to enjoy the event whether it’s with your family or with your friends, or at least, you know, survive it.
