Dating and friend finding app offers free rides during SXSW

The dating and friend finding app, Bumble, partnered up with Skedaddle, a user generated transportation technology, to offer free rides during SXSW from March 10 - 19.

A fleet of luxury minibuses drove around key neighborhoods (like downtown, South Congress, Rainey Street and West Campus) and picked people up who had a Bumble or Bumble BFF profile. 

Those who rode the bus got some cool swag and also a chance to connect with some new people.

FOX 7 checked out the bus after the first weekend of SXSW. You can watch the Facebook video below or here.
