Supporting Our Clients at "ROADEOS": Fun, Excitement, and a Vision for the Future

We're thrilled to announce that we are attending several annual Roadeos in 2024. If you are not familiar with a ROADEO, it's a unique and exhilarating event where bus drivers showcase their skills by competing in a timed obstacle course. This isn't just any competition; it's a thrilling display of precision, speed, and sheer driving talent that you won't want to miss.

2 Reasons Why We're Attending

Supporting Our Clients: Our primary reason for being at the Roadeo is to support our esteemed clients. Their commitment to excellence and safety on the road is truly inspiring, and we're here to cheer them on as they navigate the challenging course. We believe in celebrating their dedication and skill, and there's no better place to do that than right here at the Roadeo.

Because It's Fun: Let's be honest – the Roadeo is a blast! Watching these skilled drivers maneuver through tight turns, tricky obstacles, and high-pressure scenarios is as entertaining as it gets. The energy is infectious, the competition fierce, and the atmosphere is electric. It's an event that brings out the best in everyone, and we can't wait to be a part of the excitement.

One extra reason - Looking to the Future: A Virtual Reality Experience

As much as we love the live action of the Roadeo, we also have a vision for the future – a vision where everyone can experience the thrill of the Roadeo, whether that be practicing for the competition, or letting a lesser skilled driver, of friend/family member do the impossible and try it out (virtually of course). That's why we're exploring the possibility of creating a virtual reality (VR) version of the Roadeo.

Imagine sitting in a virtual bus driving simulator and either looking at the screen or taking the full immersive plunge and putting on a VR headset, where you'll instantly be transported to the heart of the action. You could take the driver's seat, navigating the same challenging courses and feeling the rush of the competition. It's an innovative way to bring the excitement of the Roadeo to a wider audience, allowing more people to appreciate the skill and dedication of our incredible bus drivers. Yet of course, there is always the possibility of honing driving skills, and making our roads safer at the same time - what's not to love!?!

Join Us on This Exciting Journey

We invite you to follow along as we support our client and enjoy the festivities at the Roadeo. Keep an eye out for updates on our progress with the VR project – we promise it's going to be a game-changer. Whether you're a fan of the event or just curious about what we're up to, there's something here for everyone.
