What do I need to bring to board the bus?

You just need yourself and your bus ticket (either printed or displayed on your phone). Be sure to also bring along your event pass/wristband in order to enter event grounds!

Are bus tickets transferable?

Yes, tickets can be transferred from one person to another. You don’t need to change the name on the ticket.

Please note, riders will be checked in. Once a rider is checked in, the ticket is expired and no one else will be able to board using that ticket.

Yes, it’s possible. Email us at [email protected]

Are buses ADA accessible?

Accessible shuttles are available upon request. Please email [email protected] to let us know, so we can arrange the right vehicle.

Please note that requests must be made a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the start of the event. Let us know as soon as you book your bus ticket!
