UFA’S Philadelphia Phoenix Hits The Road With Best Transit

Philadelphia, PA. (March 19, 2024) - The Philadelphia Phoenix of the Ultimate Frisbee Association (UFA) have announced Best Transit as the team’s official transportation sponsor. A Philadelphia-based transportation company founded by Robina Shafqat, Best Transit was originally established to provide Non-Emergency Transport (NEMT) to primarily Medicare and Medicaid recipients and is one of the largest privately-owned transportation companies providing paratransit, fixed route, shuttle, and school bus services.

“I’m a lifelong Philly sports fan,” said Best Transit president Tabeel Noel. “And when we found the opportunity to work with the Phoenix, we were so excited to share our services with the team and its fans. Ultimate frisbee represents the next generation of elite sports and we are thrilled to launch our new athletic service line with the best in the game.”

Best Transit will provide transportation services for all Phoenix road games in 2024 and 2025, with stops ranging from Montreal, Canada, to Raleigh, N.C. In addition, the company will also be hosting Hotbird Party Bus roadtrip experiences to New York and Washington, D.C., for local fans, including exclusive pregame tailgates. Tickets are included in the Pro and All-Star season ticket packages and are available for individual purchase at https://www.phoenixulti.com/collections/tickets.

Best Transit will be featured on all Philadelphia Phoenix jerseys and fans can check out the “Best Transit Drive of the Game” on Hotbird social media platforms after each matchup. For the adventurous fan, the company will activate a tricycle race at each game and Philly’s Hometown Hotbirds will roll into enemy territory in the first-ever branded team bus in UFA history.

“Best Transit represents everything we value at the Phoenix,” said team owner Christina Lee Chung. “They proudly serve our local community and neighbors, and they are committed to enriching Philadelphia to ensure all people can get where they need to be. The Hotbirds are going to fly in style with Best Transit!”
