SouthBay Burner Community Ticket Exchange
Once again, we’ve offering a South Bay Ticket Exchange spreadsheet up on Google for our local Southbay regional community, as well as a ride-share list.
This is open to the public, so we ask that you use common sense and reasonable caution when disclosing your personal information and when making monetary transactions. South Bay Burners can’t vouch for any of the buyers or sellers who make an entry on this list. (NOTE: this is DIFFERENT from the Burning Man STEP (Secure Ticket Exchange Program)which has specific deadlines.)
Having said that … here’s the 2017 South Bay Burner Ticketshare link! Besides linking buyers and sellers, there are also tabs on the spreadsheet to link people who are looking for rides, camps, and art projects. Good luck!
