Concerts are supposed to be a relaxing and fun experience, but traveling to them can sometimes be the opposite of just that. Getting dropped off on the wrong side of a giant stadium could mean a whole lot of walking until you get to your seat.

However, ride-hailing company Lyft and the ticket selling platform SeatGeek have teamed up to remove tension from the experience.

Lyft will integrate information from SeatGeek into its own app — allowing riders to enter detailed information about their destination so they can be dropped off at the sport or concert venue’s entrance that’s closest to their seat.

And if you select to take a ride directly from the SeatGeek app, your ticket information will be automatically synced with Lyft to ensure you’re dropped off as close as possible to your seat.

The feature seems to function similarly to how you can choose what terminal and airline you’re getting dropped off at the airport.

The first location where this feature will be available is Portland, Oregon, at Providence Park — home to the Portland Timbers soccer team. Images provided by Lyft show four drop off locations corresponding to four of the venue’s gates.
