Merriweather Post Pavilion partners with party bus company Rock & Bus

Fans of My Morning Jacket at their show at Merriweather Post Pavilion

Since at least August, some concertgoers have been traveling to Merriweather Post Pavilion by way of the party bus company Rock & Bus.

Today the concert venue formally announced a partnership. Rock & Bus, which also offers "luxury tailgate travel" to Madison Square Garden in New York and M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, will be the venue's official shuttle service.

Tickets for an upcoming round trip, say, to see Incubus, cost $40. The buses have pick-up stops in Maryland, Virginia and the District. Reservations can be made by visiting Merriweather's or the company's website.

Prices are comparable for the region. Boomerang Buses charged $40 for trips to the Preakness Stakes. For that event, Chariots for Hire's largest limo buses ranged in price from $150 an hour to $500.

Reservations are limited for Rock & Bus. The earliest available reservations for an upcoming show are for Incubus; buses for the National show are sold out.

For Virgin Mobile FreeFest, round trips are $50.
