BurningManRides.com is a carpool site that helps attendees share rides to the Burn. Created by the rideshare service Ridejoy, the site allows users to easily request or offer a ride and get matched up with other Burners going along their route on the same date and time frame.
For those lucky enough to snag a ticket to the annual celebration of "radical self-expression" held in the desert of Nevada (which are largely sold out), finding a way to transport themselves along with their food, water and gear can be a daunting task so carpooling is a big help.
The Ridejoy founders, themselves Burners, launched the first version of the site in August of 2011 where over 1200 rides (including 5 plane rides) were posted. You can read the full story here.
To promote the relaunch of BurningManRides.com in 2012, they are offering a "gift-away" of a free ticket to two randomly selected winners.
I'll be there this year, camping again with Liminal Labs on the Esplanade. See you there!
