To All Fans of EDC Las Vegas,
Over the past few weeks there have been several statements issued by Insomniac regarding 3rd party shuttle providers and access to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway during EDC Las Vegas 2017. We are issuing an official statement in order to share our perspective on the issue and to be as transparent as possible with our plans for servicing guests attending the event this summer.
The statement from Insomniac was something that came about very unexpectedly. Up until about 3 weeks ago, we had been operating under the assumption that our shuttles would be able to use a parking lot at the Motor Speedway during EDC Las Vegas 2017. Insomniac did not issue us a personal statement regarding this change of plans, and from what we can gather they did not send any other 3rd party shuttle provider a statement either. We cannot speak to Insomniac’s reasoning, but their abrupt halt to communications was a surprise to us, especially considering that their team has been issuing our shuttles official credentials for three years now.
We know that between all of the 3rd party shuttle providers, we end up shuttling a very sizeable portion of guests to EDC. From our experience we think that simply denying access to the parking lots at the Motor Speedway is going to make for an unpleasant experience for ALL guests attending the event including people taking Ubers, taxis, parking themselves, and the official EDC shuttles. A more complicated traffic situation is going to make for more problems, it’s as simple as that. It will also make for an unsafe situation too, and that is absolutely the most concerning issue. It is our hope that because of these problems, Insomniac will amend their stance on 3rd party shuttles.
With that being said, Unity Travel is taking steps to ensure that our shuttle service continues to be a preferred option for people attending EDC Las Vegas. Our team is hopeful that Insomniac will amend their policy on 3rd party shuttles. In the event that Insomniac decides to continue to not work with us, we will still have a solution for our guests. Unity Travel has years of experience traveling tens of thousands of people to more than 40 major dance music festivals across the world. It shouldn’t go without mention that Unity Travel is based in Las Vegas, and navigating transportation routes there is second nature to our staff. We are very confident that our solution for shuttles during EDC Las Vegas will be convenient, fun, and above all SAFE.
We encourage you to still purchase our shuttle services now in order to take advantage of the best pricing available. You can receive a refund on your order up until 14 days before the event. If by that time you are not satisfied with the plan for our service then you are welcome to cancel your order.
Moving forward, we will be publishing updates regarding this issue. Stay tuned to our social media profiles for more information.
We also encourage you to share your thoughts and concerns with our team and on social media. YOU are the reason why we offer these services and go to great lengths to ensure a great experience. YOUR voice matters.
Thank you for your support and love for the dance music community.
