The Rangers have a special subway train with their logo all over it and today they’ll have a double decker-bus decorated in Rangers’ décor in honor of their playoff run.
Today from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. Ranger fans will be able to hop on two customized tour buses to wreak havoc… err I mean spread Ranger cheer through the city of New York. The bus goes on a direct route from Madison Square Garden up to Times Square and back.
This promotion was run last year to much success that Vector Media, who is behind the fan bus rides, decided to do it again this year (click here to see video from last year’s “Fan Ride”).
“This is a shorter tour circling MSG and surrounding areas,” said Gary Greenstein, VP of Vector Media. “This tour is all about the fans, with music, chanting, etc. Think pep-rally.”
So a pep rally on wheels, sounds fun.
To add to the experience former Rangers Pete Stemkowski and Brian Muller will be along for the ride with fans. A film crew will also be on board to capture all the excitement and clips will be shown on the MSG video board during tomorrow night’s game.
So there you have Ranger fans, today before face-off you can spread your Ranger fandom and show the city that New Yorkers care about more than just April baseball and Knicks basketball.
