Stories from the Road: Summer Event Recap

Summers are nothing without the never ending flow of music concerts and festivals all across the country. We’ve helped hundreds of of Zimriders travel thousands of miles through our event partners this year!

To officially say “sayonara” to Summer 2012 here are some of our favorite stories from Zimride’s amazing community:

Bonnaroo 2012 – Madeline H and Sarah C

Zimride turned out to be a great decision! Sarah and I were both apprehensive about riding with a stranger but she was extremely flexible about when we left! After an hour or two on the road, we discovered we had a lot in common and got along great! I’m sure we’re going to stay in touch in the future, and she may even come visit me in CA!

I decided to Zimride because it was cheap, easy, and the most direct way to get to Bonnaroo from Indiana. Thank you Zimride!

Coachella 2012 – Amanda T, Allen R, and Josh A

I loved our experience and look forward to another trip to meet plenty of others! It all started when my bestie and I decided on renting a car to camp in at Coachella. I heard from another friend who has used Zimride plenty times and I thought I’d look into it. I was a little skeptical at first but when I realized I could see profiles of the others I was okay with it. Little did I know the passenger we ended up taking was AWESOME!

Bright and early the day of our trip, I arrived at the train station to meet my ride buddy, Allan! Dressed to the TEE in coachella attire, bandana and heart shaped glasses required! Of course we hit it off right away! For the next 9+ hours Allan and my family friend, Josh, talked NON-STOP about music, all music, anything to do with music and entertained us with the delights of multiple Anchorman/Will Ferrell songs.

Although Allan had other arrangements once we got there, we still kept in touch throughout the event and met up a few times. I’m counting down the days till I get to hit up the Haight with my new love Allan! Can not complain about anything and glad I made an awesometabulous new friend!!

Thanks Zimride. You will def be recomended and used again!!!

Major thanks to everyone who shared their stories with us over the summer! If you have a story that you want to share, please send your Zimride story from the road to!

Happy Travels,
