Ultra is moving from its longtime home of Bayfront Park to Virginia Key for the first time this weekend. More than 50,000 people are expected to show up to the three-day festival, and city officials are working hard to ensure that traffic on the Rickenbacker Causeway flows smoothly.
For those that may not know, the Rickenbacker Causeway is the one road that connects the Miami mainland to Virginia Key. To reduce the chances of traffic snarls, ridesharing services such as Lyft and Uber have made it known that passengers will not be picked up at Virginia Key during the Ultra Musical Festival. For anyone that intends to use ridesharing, they will need to ride one of the three shuttles transporting them to the following locations: Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, the former home of the Miami Herald near Omni, or the American Airlines Arena. It is only at these locations that people can be picked up via Uber or Lyft.
Although Uber and Lyft have made their pickup policy clear, passengers can still be dropped off at Virginia Key. While Uber won’t have any drop-off restrictions, Lyft will cease drop-offs beginning at 10:30 pm until 6 am. Residents of Key Biscayne residents can also request vehicles from either service.
