Crowd-powered mobility co. partners with Major League Baseball

Posted on July 19, 2016

Crowd-powered mobility platform Rally, a NYC-based tech company, which offers pop-up mass transit to events, announced a new partnership with Major League Baseball.

The partnership is intended to enhance transportation of fans to and from MLB games. Seats are booked in advance, meeting points are pre-determined, friends and/or fellow fans can travel together in large groups, and there are no surge fees.

Teams confirmed to participate include the Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago Cubs, Kansas City Royals, Miami Marlins, Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets, Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals.

Customers can find the game through the Rally mobile app, website (rallybus.net) or when purchasing tickets online at MLB.com and the official Club website, choose a convenient Rally point (bus stop) for travel direct to the stadium.

Rally has crowd-powered community travel to and from a number of major events including the Kentucky Derby, Super Bowl, Daytona 500, Beyoncé, and the recent visit by the Pope. More recently, Rally was accepted into Techstars prestigious international Mobility accelerator.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Major League Baseball and are excited that they see the potential for their fans to really enjoy using our service,” says Numaan Akram, CEO of Rally. “We are hopeful that with this launch we will be able to get more communities to baseball games and help them extend their fan experience beyond the game with an enjoyable travel experience."

Additionally, Rally also just announced a new partnership with world-renowned soccer club, New York Cosmos.
