 Special Information for taxi, Uber and Lyft drivers at Country Jam


In response to some problems encountered during the Eaux Claires Music Festival the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office, in cooperation with the Eau Claire Police Department, Country Jam organizers, and their transportation partner Right Way Shuttle, has created a protocol to streamline access to the area of the music festival during the upcoming Country Jam Music Festival.

Special routes into and out of the music festival area have been established for use by taxi cabs, Uber and Lyft drivers. A specified drop off and pick up location has been established and will be clearly marked. A secondary location has also been established in case the first location becomes unusable as occurred during the Eaux Claires Music Festival.

Taxi cab operators as well as Uber and Lyft drivers who wish to provide transportation to and from the music festival will be required to stop by the Right Way Shuttle Office located at 128 North Clairemont Avenue to obtain a dash placard. This placard must be displayed while operating in the vicinity of the music festival and will be required for entrance to the pickup and drop off locations.

Any questions regarding this protocol can be addressed to Sergeant John Staber at the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office.
