The Strawberry Music Festival has a link on their "main" page which directs people to the (non-org) BBS for the event (Called the "Strawberry Phorum") where both tix and rideshare are main topics (like BRC's 2005 ticket one), so anyone who needs to do either can access it from the Festival's main page. They've done it for a while and it has worked surprisingly well. Otherwise you have a lot of ad-hoc and "catch-as-catch-can" (on things like ebay and craigs list) trying to find either. These also post on theirs in reverse order (new posts on top) which would make it easier than the "first one first" that we have, but it's the best way to arrange either that I've found.
