Creation Festivals has announced a new partnership with RYDE, an innovative crowdsourcing transportation service, to provide an affordable and efficient transportation solution to get festival attendees out to Creation Festivals. Beginning with Creation Northeast at Agape Farms on June 24-27 in Mt. Union, Pennsylvania, RYDE’s motorcoaches will shuttle in individuals, families, and groups from outlying areas to and from the four-day festival.
Fans will be able to reserve round-trip tickets via RYDE’s website for a shuttle that will pick them up from numerous cities in each festival’s region (within approximately a 120-mile radius). A RYDE motorcoach will bring them straight to the festival grounds and return them to their embarking location on Sunday evening following each festival.
“Creation Festivals has done a tremendous job of creating a series of powerful festivals across the country that illustrate their core values of spreading the Gospel through music,” says Brian Allman, CEO of RYDE. “RYDE’s goal is to help grow the community of attendees as our shuttles help overcome some hurdles that come with traveling distances for multi-day events. We create a rolling social gathering of sorts, and we hope to minimize the stress involved in getting to what many proclaim to be a life-changing experience.”
“At Creation, we are always thrilled to explore new avenues of making the festivals and the Gospel message accessible to more people,” states Bill Darpino, Executive Director for Creation Festivals. “One avenue of providing greater accessibility is by partnering with RYDE to offer fans a comfortable, affordable ‘carpooling’ experience to and from the festivals.”
