Take a look at all three of our public route options and decide which you are most interested in exploring. Please note that certain routes are offered on certain days which may play a part in your decision. Once you are ready to book your reservation, follow the process on the website. While there is a minimum number of passengers (7) for us to provide public rides, there is never a minimum number of guests required in your party when booking a public ride, so come solo or with a crew – it’s totally up to you!
Every public ride will start and finish in the parking lot across from ZZQ in Scott’s Addition (3207 Norfolk Street – entrance on Moore Street). If there are spots available, you may feel free to park your car in the lot for $5. Once aboard, you will have 2 or more options for each destination on the ride. If you know ahead of time which locations you will be going to, great, if not, simply let the driver know the day of your ride! You will be able to enjoy each destination for 1 hour no matter which tour you choose. The driver will let you know when he/she drops you off at the destination what time they will return to pick you up. Please be outside and ready to go at the specified time; due to a strict time schedule, we will not be able to wait so it is very important to keep track of the time.
At the end of your ride, the bus will bring you back to the parking lot in Scott’s Addition or drop you at one of the other entertainment options before heading home. Part of why we love what we do is that it is a SAFE way to enjoy adult beverages – please plan accordingly and have a sober driver take you home. Uber and Lyft are both great options!!!

If you plan to have several adult beverages, please plan to have a DD or sober driver (Lyft/Uber).
