Los Angeles, CA, May 24, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- RYDE, a crowdsourcing transportation company, and Deadhead Productions, producers of Grateful Dead-centric events Highberry Music Festival and Hillberry Music Festival, have partnered to provide an environmentally-friendly and economical rideshare option for the festivals. Upscale motorcoach shuttles will enable fans from outside the Ozark area to attend the events with minimal hassle, alleviating travel, congestion, and parking concerns. RYDE strives to minimize the carbon emissions impact of live events such as these by taking 30-35 cars off the road for each bus, while also providing a fun-filled transportation solution that enhances the overall experience. Highberry Music Festival is July 2-5, 2015 in Ozark, AR and Hillberry Music Festival is August 20-23, 2015 in Eureka Springs, AR.
“We are excited to be part of the Highberry and Hillberry festivals, and we’re so impressed with their growth trajectory and talent they’ve been able to attract,” commented Brian Allman, CEO of RYDE. “RYDE’s motorcoaches are a perfect social ridesharing solution for the Deadhead community at these festivals, and Deadhead Productions shows that they are committed to enhancing fan access while also hyping up the fun factor. RYDE is the responsible designated driver, and the fans can focus on the music and the overall vibe while knowing they have made a positive environmental impact.”
“Highberry Music Festival started as a private two-day party at a house, and is now developing into a true festival destination,” said Jon Walker, Founder of Deadhead Productions. “As we grow, finding experience-improving and logistics solutions like ridesharing opportunities is very important and RYDE has been a great partner. RYDE enables us to appeal to a bigger geographic audience, and we’re providing a great way for like-minded people to interact before and after the event and build new friendships.”
RYDEs out-of-town shuttles are one-way or roundtrip, with the motorcoaches picking up passengers at designated locations and returning them at the end of the festival. Festival attendees reserve seats via RYDE’s easy-to-use website, and enjoy the Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, spacious leg room, and ample storage space for any camping gear fans may bring. RYDE encourages ticket purchasers to utilize social media and word-of-mouth to promote the RYDE to others, helping ensure there are enough passengers to make the shuttle environmentally and economically viable to run.
