RYDE Partners with Quick Lane Bowl to Provide Game Transportation

Luxury Motorcoaches Provide Access to Ford Field From Multiple Locations. Avoid hassles of traffic and parking fees while traveling safely and economically.

Online PR News – 18-December-2014 – Detroit, MI – RYDE, an innovative crowdsourcing transportation service platform, has partnered with Quick Lane Bowl to transport game attendees to the December 26th football Bowl game in Detroit, MI between Rutgers University and University of North Carolina. Using an online reservation service, fans reserve seats on luxury motorcoaches for a roundtrip RYDE to the game. The service enables fans to avoid traffic and parking issues while helping to reduce their carbon footprint. Options to purchase game tickets are also available on the RYDEthere.com site.

“If you’re looking for a stress-free, no hassle way to get to Ford Field for the 2014 Quick Lane Bowl, RYDE is definitely the way to go,” stated Nicki Keller with Quick Lane Bowl. “When approached by RYDE to hear about the services they can offer our fans, we were eager to begin this partnership. We hope that everyone interested takes full advantage of all the services that RYDE can provide.”

“We are excited to partner with Quick Lane Bowl in their inaugural season, and know that our shuttle partnership will help enhance the fan experience in getting to the Field,” said Bob Aube, Founder and Chief Revenue Officer at RYDE. “Bowl passengers will capitalize on a fun, convenient, safe, and affordable means of getting to the game without the hassles often associated with single car driving to large scale events. Fans can celebrate freely, knowing they have a safe, “designated” driver to take them home.”

Shuttle buses will depart from locations in Saginaw, Flint, Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Toledo, Monroe, London, and Chatham-Kent, and arrive at Ford Field in designated bus parking close to the stadium. Buses will depart from Ford Field 30 minutes after the game to return fans to their original location. Pricing starts at $39 for the RYDE transportation.

RYDE’s business model enables a collaboration with consumers to reach a level of sustainable efficiency, meaning a shuttle is only confirmed with a critical mass of participating passengers. RYDE encourages the use of social media platforms to share event information and push passengers from solo vehicles to the more economical bus service. This solution supports RYDE’s core value of helping the world reduce carbon emissions as each bus may take 20-30 vehicles off the road via ride-sharing. At the same time, road safety is enhanced as professional “designated drivers” from RYDE enable event goers to maximize their fun without endangering others on the road on the way home.
