Hello fellow carpoolers! www.rickyrides.com has officially signed up more than 1000 festival goers! Check it out for carpooling to Coachella and many other events. Add your location, offer a ride, or look for a ride. It is a visually based carpooling experience using google maps. You can access Coachella first weekend or second weekend.

Please leave a message at the bottom letting us know what you think. We were recently "unstickied" because someone acquired the exclusive rights to carpooling and took us off the website. If you leave a comment it will bump us up. Thank you everyone for supporting us!

Most likely the only people who will take notice of your site will be AEG's lawyers, unfortunately.

Wonder if AEG is gonna send them a cease & desist.

My favorite part is the guy in Norway in need of a ride.

He's gonna get one for sure.

Why would they?

Hey guys... you really think AEG is gonna say something? We're not making any money and it's just a tool for finding rides, to help the community.

03-24-2011, 12:35 PM
They can't do anything, AEG doesn't own any rights to the Coachella name.

03-24-2011, 12:41 PM
It's a freaking google map, with the name of a region in the url. It's a helpful tool that is totally autonomous the festival making no mention of it. Again, nice work with this thing!!!

Good thinking, good work, and good luck!

AWESOME website! I have been emailing everyone la south... but if you need a ride I am leaving OC around noon on Friday... Coming back Sunday night to SD

Got a pm from a potential ride, any way of telling if theyre legit?

04-14-2011, 01:20 PM
Hey, we were the ones who created the site so if you received a message it is from someone that saw your location and sent you a message. As for if the person will follow through we don't have any way of gauging that. Sorry, but we hope you don't have any problems. Thanks for trying out our tool. Next year we may try to organize caravans or buses. We'll see!!
