Los Angeles' "Public Transportainment"

An enterprising couple from Los Angeles turned an RV into a mode of public transportation for the party-going crowd. Recent partnerships with Foursquare and Walt Disney Imagineering have made the RV a popular way to get around Tinseltown.

From Good Magazine:
"The RVIP Lounge is not a truck, strictly speaking. Rather, it's a fully-functioning RV that provides free, safe public transportation while riders belt out karaoke standards at the top of their lungs."

"After a debut at SXSW three years ago, the RVIP Lounge has become a favorite at progressive gatherings, where it can serve as an impromptu community-builder."
