We know transportation is a BIG part of the equation when you're planning your arts-going with your TeenTix Pass, which is why we're ALWAYS looking for new ways you can see art safely and for not a lot of dough. We also know that not everyone's transportation options are the same - so we like to work with people who can help teens get around Seattle in all sorts of different ways.
We are STOKED that our friends at ReachNow want to help.
Have you heard of ReachNow? We love them because they're local, it's a care share AND ride service (your choice!), the cars are sweeeeet (BMW/Mini's!!!!) and some are electric (eco-friendly!!), pricing is by the minute, and PARKING IS FREE almost everywhere in-town. Check out all the deets and FAQ's below!
THE TEENTIX DEAL:
Teens 18 & 19 get $15 of FREE drive credits!!
That's basically to-and-from an arts show for FREE - now through SEP 7, 2017.
Check your email for your personalized code IF you are 18 or 19!!!! Or email us if you can't find it.
- Download the CAR SHARE app (even if you're gonna do the RIDE option - you gotta have both for it to work) and sign-up! Find it: App Store or Google Play
- If you'd rather ride and not drive - download the RIDE app and sign-up! Find it: App Store or Google Play (Heads up - RIDE doesn't work unless you've signed up for CARE SHARE - it's still in beta mode.)
- Use your personalized promo code in the CAR SHARE app for the discount! (The coupon will apply to both RIDE and CAR SHARE options.)
Help us test this out! Sign up NOW and email us with a THUMBS UP or THUMBS DOWN on this idea. The more we understand how you WANT to get around town, the more we can work on finding YOU safe and affordable transportation to see cool art.
