It’s back and it’s badder then ever! In an effort to bring our guests the best, we’re adding additional stops and service to bring the best of Rockaway Beach to all the awesome guests from across Manhattan & Brooklyn (coming soon… Upper East Side Express), to beach with us this summer. After teaming up with the awesome folks at Vice and Old Blue Last Beer, we’re taking the OvR Beach Bus to the next level!!
Rockaway Beach is an old New York institution on the rise after surviving the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. You can support a rebuilding scene and join us on The OvR Rockaway Beach Bus for an epic day at the beach!
Post Hurricane Sandy, the OvRride team activated our community, offering transportation of goods and volunteers to help relieve our beautiful New York City beach community. Fast forward to the summer of 2014 and our volunteer efforts turned to a service offering in the Rockaway and Manhattan/Brooklyn communities. Connected and flourishing, The OvR Rockaway Beach Bus was born as a direct way to continue to help promote and offer service for beachgoers. Each year the revitalization of the beaches across the NYC coastline has grown. Just as important as the rise of local businesses and recreational beach activities is the conservation and preservation of the beaches we love to enjoy. That’s why we’ve connected all the dots and launched a new incarnation built on the spirit in which it was founded, enter the summer of 2018! This season for every guest joining the bus, we’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds to local charities in Rockaway who continue to fight to ensure we have beaches to appreciate in the future.
Rent a board and get a surf lesson with the awesome guys at Locals Surf School. Bar hop at some of the best beach bars in the game, or keep it mellow and just hang on the beach, whatever you’re into we have you covered! With exclusive deals at a variety of local spots including restaurants, hotels and shops, you are guaranteed to get the authentic NYC Beach experience!
Round trip transportation, as well as oneway to/from Rockaway Beach, Riis Park Beach Bazaar and Fort Tilden on “The Fun Bus”.

When you get on The OvR Rockaway Beach Bus, the commute becomes part of the experience.
