Get ready to ride in style, because the Vengabus is coming to town, and it’s all thanks to Uber! The ride-share giant is hitting the streets with the ultimate party bus for Pride – the Uber Pride Ride. And the best part? It’s hosted by none other than the legendary Dutch pop icons, the Vengaboys, and a bunch of LGBTQIA+ icons.
The Pride Ride bus will be unveiled this Thursday by the Vengaboys themselves, with a VIP ride for early birds to get the party started. And, because Uber knows how to throw a party, they’re also making it rain with party trips, covering up to $100 off shared rides (Uber Pool trips) to and from Mardis Gras (February 24th-26th).
The free hop-on, hop-off bus will be available to festival-goers during the weekends between February 17th and March 5th, and each ride will be a wild, fun-filled experience. Get ready for drag bingo, karaoke with Jojo Zaho, Carla from Bankstown, and Coco Jumbo, and educational talks from Black Rainbow, the organization advocating for the voices of first nations LGBTQIA+ young people.
And for those hitting up Mardis Gras, Uber is giving you a lift for free*. All you have to do is order an Uber Pool trip to Sydney festival locations between 12 PM and 10 PM on the 24th, 25th, or 26th of February, and your trip will be covered, up to a value of $100.
Emma Foley, Director at Uber Australia, says, “In collaboration with some of Australia’s most fabulous LGBTQIA+ icons and our partner Black Rainbow, we’re excited to launch the Uber Pride Ride, a platform for everyone attending the festival to celebrate who they are and get around events safely and seamlessly.”
So, get your glitter on and prepare to party. The Vengabus is coming, and the Uber Pride Ride is the ultimate inner-city disco on wheels. With thousands of interstate and international travellers joining Sydneysiders for one of the biggest celebrations of our time, the Uber Pride Ride will make your travel easy, safe, and fun!
