My usual Bonnaroo group couldn't make it this year. I made arrangements to meet up with a group from RickyRides about 30 miles outside of Manchester and shared an RV with them for the weekend. I also connected with someone from RickyRides who needed a ride to NC after the festival. I guess that's two success stories! :)- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2015 Carpooler
It was great. Thank you Ricky Rides!- Once Upon a Festival 2015 Carpooler
My girlfriend and I were flying into St.Louis and driving to Bonnaroo. We knew it would be a cheaper option to try and share a ride with someone. We found our new friend Andy!

It was a way to save everyone money and make good friends along the way. - Bonnaroo Music Festival 2015 Carpooler

They didn't have a ride and I had some space so we connected right here on RickyRides. Just another Bonnaroovian connection. As they say, "The Dude abides... but Bonnaroo provides!"

It went good- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2015 Carpooler
In 2014 I my made my first journey to Bonnaroo and I spent about $225 to get there and return back home. I was on bus for 1 day and 9 hours making my way from south Texas to Manchester, TN. I was able to fly back to San Antonio and took a two hour bus ride home. This year I used Ricky rides and I spent $60 to get from Houston to Bonnaroo and back. The savings were immense but the experience was unbelievable! If it weren't for Ricky rides I'd be stranded in Tennessee or completely broke. - Bonnaroo Music Festival 2015 Carpooler
Fantastic! I ended up giving 4 people a ride to Bonnaroo. It was a long drive and we were packed tight - but, everyone got along and we all had an awesome time at the festival. I really can't imagine the whole trip going any better - and the passengers that I picked up through RickyRides made it all the better.- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2015 Carpooler
I drove two people from Dallas to Manchester, Tennessee, for Bonnaroo. It was a long trip so having company was great. They were polite, respectful, and gave me gas money up front. I'll definitely use Ricky Rides again in the future!- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2015 Carpooler

Finding a ride share here took very little time and it worked out remarkably more cost effective and fun!

Ricky Rides was absolutely awesome! I was planning to make the trip to Bonnaroo alone after having multiple friends bail last minute. I still had room for one more and decided some extra gas money and company along the ride couldn't hurt so I posted on Ricky Rides. About two weeks before leaving I was contacted by a female individual in the Kalamazoo area who was actually the same age as myself and needed a ride. She turned out to be a really cool person and we ended up camping together and hanging for most of the festival. This experience definitely put aside my doubts and even allowed me to meet a new friend. - Bonnaroo Music Festival 2014 Carpooler
I made it to roo and back and made some sweet new friends along the way. I was awesome!- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2014 Carpooler

I had planned a trip with my friends to Bonnaroo, but unfortunately my ride fell though. With only a couple days before the festival started I was looking all over the interent for a ride. Fortunately I found this site and I got to meet a very cool guy! The commute to Bonnaroo was very enjoyable! The person who picked me up was super nice and I had a blast traveling with him! Very impressed I will definitely give back to the Rickyrides community.- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2014 Carpooler

Ricky rides kicked ass! Will use it again 100%- Summer Camp Music Festival 2014 Carpooler
I was skeptical at first, it was to be me(female) and three male strangers riding. But it ended up being perfect! Everyone was super cool and it eneded up being two really awesome 14 hour rides!- Summer Camp Music Festival 2014 Carpooler
Rickey Rides was of great help. If you need a ride somewhere this site rocks and will get you a ride to your destination. Rickey Rides is here to stay :)- Mysteryland USA 2014 Carpooler
My husband and I met up with Jill, the driver, and two other passengers near the Chicago airport. We were all very excited for the festival and had a great time on our 2-3 hour trip to the festival. Plus, Jill was an excellent driver! We rode with her back to Chicago airport area and this time we picked up someone who needed a ride as well. It was interesting as this man has been hitchhiking for 7 weeks. All in all, an interesting and delightful trip. We got to meet new people, actually got to go to summer camp and we were being green! Thank you, Jill & RickyRides! -kait & sam- Summer Camp Music Festival 2014 Carpooler

Awesome! Last minute decided to make the post. I came from MD so it was just a long solo ride. Ended up picking up this guy in WV.

We had the best experience using Ricky Rides! Our kind carpoolers picked us up and dropped us off right outside our hotel door, chatted to us the whole way like we were old friends and made us feel totally safe and welcome on their trip. It's comforting to know there are still decent people in this world!- Coachella Music Festival 2014 (Weekend 1) Carpooler
Ricky Rides was awesome! I was able to find people with whom to share cabs both days of the Treasure Island music festival, and, in the end, it worked out better than my original plan (which was derailed by the BART strike) would have. Saved money and met cool people.- Treasure Island Music Festival 2013 Carpooler
Super easy, dude ended up being one of my best friend's college roomates- What The Festival Carpooler
my girlfriends car exploded the night before we left... epic fail, it had to strait to the mechanic with no hope of being fixed. the next morning when we were supposed to be on the road we had our heads in our hands with no way of making it from Ann Arbor Michigan to the place that used to be called Buckeye Lake. 3:35 min drive on the high ways. We tried everything from renting a car to guilt on our friends. We thought that people might be trying to car pool so we looked and found Ricky Rides. Although at that last minute we didn't find a ride on Ricky Rides we were able to keep the hope alive long enough with this site to find another way down. What Ricky Rides did for us was to keep us from giving up because failure was not an option lol. Thanks Ricky rides for being here and now that i found u I'm posting on it early next time. be good friends peace -Casey- All Good Festival 2013 Carpooler
Your site worked great, I changed plans at the last minute. I was able to delete my old markers, put my new plans up, and all this without a facebook acct. I actually drove out of my way an hour to pick up someone and bring him to his first festival. We all had a ball for the weekend. Thanks for your site, he said he wouldn't have made it to the festival without this site and finding me. Thanks again, Happy first time user- All Good Festival 2013 Carpooler
I had a good experience carpooling with 3 others.- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2013 Carpooler
I paid for all my gas from St Paul, MN to Bonnaroo by giving people rides! RickyRides helped a ton, thanks!- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2013 Carpooler
Rickyrides was so succesful on helping me find rides, that I continued to find people who were looking even after I had filled. I then helped to try and connect those people and even got a group together who also rented a car! I felt like with Ricky it was a great way to pull this all together!- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2013 Carpooler
Not only did I get a ride to Bonnaroo, but the guy who was driving happened to have an extra wristband, so my 3 day bracelet for Bonnaroo was free!!!- Bonnaroo Music Festival 2013 Carpooler

Thanks !!!- Coachella Music Festival 2013 (Weekend 1) Carpooler
I volunteered to Grandma-sit cos I didn't think I had a ride, but I actually found one after I'd made other plans! Next time, I'll try to be more patient & keep the faith! Thanks!- All Good Festival 2012 Carpooler
I was looking for a ride to Bonnaroo on very late notice and I came to the site in desperation. A very friendly person e-mailed me and was my last hope. We drove 10 hours together and I had a blast at roo. We are now friends. If it weren't for this site and the kindness of a stranger I would have missed out on one of my favorite experiences. - Bonnaroo 2012 Carpooler
I was able to give three people a ride to bonnaroo and back and had a great time with them along the way.- Bonnaroo 2012 Carpooler

Posted my request needing a ride, got contacted by about 6 people, one of which was whom helped make one of my most memorable memories ever. If it weren't for this site, I would have missed out on an incredible experience. Thanks!- Bonnaroo 2012 Carpooler
I was given 3 different ride share sites and rickyrides was the best. The map feature works well and is easy. The communication was between riders and rides was also very easy. Lastly, I couldn't even use one of the other sites because they wanted me to login with my Twitter or Facebook account. Sorry, but I'm not going to let some third party have access to my FB/Twitter info. I know some people just let apps do that without any regard for the consequences, but it's a privacy issue for me and I will never use a site that doesn't allow me to create an independent account. Good job RickyRides! :)- SYMBIOSIS GATHERING 2012 Pyramid Eclipse Carpooler
Managed to get set up rides with some really cool peeps...- SYMBIOSIS GATHERING 2012 Pyramid Eclipse Carpooler
Ricky Rides saved my festival! :) I won tickets to Coachella but had no way to get to the venue as well as no where to camp when I got there (I was flying in from NYC). I happened to check the forums for possible rides and I found a link for Ricky Rides. I contacted a couple going on the second weekend who were looking for help splitting gas and camping costs. It turned out AMAZING! They were awesome people, we all had similar music taste, and we all hung out the entire time I was there. They were even able to accommodate my girlfriend when she decided to join us last minute. I can't image what I would have done without Ricky Rides! Thank you for creating this website!!! :)- Coachella 2012 (II) Carpooler
It was so great. I met this nice girl from San Diego. The thing was that I was asking about a ride to Coachella from San Diego because I flew from Mexico City to Tijuana and then a Shuttle to San Diego. Thanks a lot :)- Coachella 2012 (II) Carpooler
My experience was fantastic. My ride and I had so much in common that it was meant to be in every way. I cannot express my thanks to Ricky Rides for making our trip to Coachella weekend 2 possible. I hope others will have a similar successful story as mine. - Coachella 2012 (II) Carpooler
Was able to meet some great people to plan the logistics for Coachella 2012. Couldn't have done it without RickyRides!- Coachella 2012 (II) Carpooler

Was looking for a last minute ride to Coachella, since my friends were leaving later than I wanted to arrive. Found one in the area, contacted the person and left my number.

Fun times for all.- Coachella 2012 (I) Carpooler
