Derby Daily - Thursday

Happy Thursday! The main Kentucky Derby™ events kick off today, bringing thousands of rider requests your way all day long. Read on for the event details, best places to be and a pro-tip to perfect your pickups! 


Thursday's Events


Suggested Times to Drive

Morning demand will pick up by 11am and remain constant until demand spikes at 4pm for the evening’s events. If you can’t drive in the morning, you’ll want to be on by mid-afternoon to catch the demand bump from Thurby at Churchill Downs!

Demand tonight will be higher than even a normal Saturday as many of the Derby visitors have now landed in Louisville.  Expect Churchill Downs, Downtown and other entertainment areas to drive the biggest demand.


Looking Ahead

Friday, May 6th
