Carpool to Win Beach Blanket Babylon Tickets!

511 is teaming up with Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon to promote carpooling in the Bay Area. Register in our free 511 RideMatch Service, complete three (3) carpool trips a week starting April 7 through May 31, 2014, and you could be randomly selected to win tickets to Beach Blanket Babylon.

Carpooling is a great way to beat traffic congestion, reduce auto emissions and cut your commute costs. Carpooling is also a sustainable alternative to drive-alone commuting.

The always-topical Beach Blanket Babylon, now celebrating its 40th Anniversary, is the longest running musical revue in theatre history. It's packed with hilarious spoofs of political and pop culture, spectacular costumes, outrageously gigantic hats and one show-stopping number after another. See the show at Club Fugazi in North Beach.

How to participate:

Get started right away and join a carpool! As soon as you register, you'll receive a list of potential carpool partners who live and work nearby. Give them a call, meet for coffee--and try carpooling. Then track your carpool trips to work in your Trip Diary, located in your 511 RideMatch account, and you will automatically be entered into the drawing for tickets.

When you carpool, you'll save time, money and meet new people. And you may be on your way to see Beach Blanket Babylon in San Francisco!

(Attendees must have a valid photo ID and be 21 or over to attend an evening performance.)
