SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 7, 2018-- today announced the launch of fan shuttle services for Beyoncé & Jay-Z OTR-II Concert Series in 15 Cities starting with the August 16th concert in Columbus, Ohio and ending with the October 4th concert in Seattle, Washington.

“With pickup locations in 69 Cities and 70+ million people who live within 150 mile radius of the 15 Concert Venues, ProntoShuttles offers the broadest, most dense and unprecedented shuttle service coverage for a public, large-scale event on such a broad scale,” said Al Linden, ProntoShuttle’s Director of Marketing.

In a related announcement, ProntoShuttles.com also announced the launch of its open and crowd-sourced Book My Shuttle platform for event shuttles for concert and sporting event venue and stadium management, and for individual groups to book and manage shuttles for their social, outdoor and other group activities.

“The curated shuttles - schedules, locations and itineraries - we have set up for the 15-City Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert series showcase the Book My Shuttle platform’s ability to set up and automate management of shuttles on a massive scale,” said Cory Smith, ProntoShuttles’ VP of Business Development. “If the schedules and locations offered by Pronto curated shuttles don’t meet their needs, the open, crowd-sourced Book My Shuttle platform empowers and enables groups to set up their own shuttle schedule, itinerary and locations.”
