Burner Express

Post by martaalvp » Thu May 16, 2019 4:31 pm

Hi. My boyfriend and I are attending this year for the first time!!!
I’m looking for the best option -we are either going from SF or Reno- We were planning doing the burner express, but I’m not sure how does it work...
where does the burner express leaves you in BM and picks you ?? Because we are going with a camp.
Any suggestions ??

All those answers are in the Burner Express FAQ on the website.

So. Bus comes into the event, (not on schedule), And leaves you at the bus stop. Call it 630 and H. From there you can get on the shuttle bus and ride down G street. Get off as close as possible to your camp. Find someone in a camp that will watch your gear while you go find your camp and some help. All destinations approximate. When you leave it is from that same bus stop. I don't know if there is a shuttle. It's doable.

Reno has a stop at Keystone Shopping Center for one hour to buy food or whatever. You leave on the bus from the airport. You can pay ahead of time for extra baggage.
SF has no grocery stop and I don't think you can take extra bags.

Which one is the easiest/ less expensive to get to?
