Pickups and drop-off are located at the East Bathhouse, a short walk across from the amphitheater.

Bus service will begin May 30th with the Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band show and run on all show nights through September, ending with the final concert of the season on Thursday, September 19th.
"NICE Bus is proud to partner with Live Nation to expand service to Nassau County's beachside entertainment destination," said Jack Khzouz, NICE Bus CEO.
