RYDE Provides Environmentally-Friendly Transportation Shuttles for Frendly Gathering Music Festival

Partnership Features Upscale Motorcoaches to Provide Safe, Convenient, & Affordable Rideshare Opportunity to 5th Annual Festival in Southern Vermont

Los Angeles, CA, June 04, 2015 --(PR.com)-- RYDE, a crowdsourcing transportation company, and Frendly Gathering Music Festival have partnered to provide an environmentally-friendly and economical rideshare option for the 5th annual festival June 26 & 27, 2015 at Timber Ridge in southern Vermont. RYDE will provide upscale motorcoaches to Frendly Gathering attendees to alleviate any travel, congestion, and parking concerns associated with this beautiful yet somewhat hard-to-access setting. One-way and roundtrip long-distance shuttle service is available from cities such as Boston, New York City, Burlington, Concord, and Albany. Frendly Gathering was formed by professional snowboarders Danny Davis and Jack Mitrani as a means of bringing together their mutual passion for music, the environment, and "frends" from around the world.

“Frendly Gathering has such a great vibe to it with the music, camping, food, and yoga, and they are so conscious of how they are impacting the environment,” commented Brian Allman, CEO of RYDE. “Besides giving fans a fun, economical, safe way to get to the festival, RYDE strives to take 30-35 cars off the road for each bus while providing a fun-filled experience in the process. Our motorcoaches are a perfect social ridesharing solution for people who want to relax and enjoy the festival without worrying about the travel aspects.”

“Timber Ridge is such a beautiful, relaxing environment, and even our intimate setting can have its access challenges that impact the overall awesome festival experience,” said Jack Mitrani, Co-Founder of the Frendly Gathering. “We partnered with RYDE to help us extend our fan base into new cities, and to help us facilitate a rideshare option. Frendly Gathering is enabling the RYDE buses to bypass the checkpoint at Magic Mountain, and that should really help reduce wait times and get people to Timber Ridge faster. ”

RYDE out-of-town shuttles are one-way or roundtrip, with the motorcoaches picking up passengers on Friday, June 26th, 2015 and returning them on Sunday, June 28th, 2015 after the festival’s conclusion. Frendly Gathering Music 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.
