CHICAGO — Uber is getting special pick-up zones at some major Chicago attractions. Its first stop is at Navy Pier.

Three dedicated areas will go near the IMAX theater, fun house and the grand ballroom.

A spokesperson for Navy Pier says the new pick-up spots will help keep traffic moving.

Signs will be posted to guide Uber riders toward pick-up zones.

The ride-sharing company hopes the zones will also be added to airports.
