Root is providing 8 vehicles total, between the two pickup points*. At each pickup spot, riders will be greeted by Root ambassadors that will be giving away pizza and prizes all night! The rider can choose any destination for themselves or their group, which can include up to 6 people. The rides will be subject to availability.
