Probably not a lot, but you can pack a shit-ton of people to build it, and to volunteer at different areas of the city. Not really sure how this is that much different than a ride-share, other than the fact that it's directly organized by BMan, which just (hopefully) makes it more reliable than the ToFlame bus (or whatever that was called). How much would you pay for shared gas, etc for a ride-share? You probably wouldn't be carrying a whole lot of "dangerous art" in that situation either.
I do not think the word "commodification" means what you think it does...
We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
TO FLAME BUSES NOT AUTHORIZED TO ENTER BLACK ROCK CITY IN 2013
Burning Man organizers want participants to know the To Flame bus operated by Rally Bus will not be granted access to Black Rock City in 2013.
Companies providing bus service to the Burning Man event are required to secure permits from Burning Man and the Bureau of Land Management. To Flame and Rally Bus have not secured these permits.
Additionally, Burning Man issued a Request for Proposals for a bus service to the event earlier this year. To Flame submitted a proposal, but was not selected based on gaps in their operational plan to support the event, previous track record and negative feedback about their bus service from operators and participants.
During the RFP process Burning Man advised To Flame to not sell any additional tickets. To Flame was not selected as the bus service vendor, but continued to advertise bus service during and after the RFP process. On June 26 Burning Man issued a Cease & Desist letter to the company.
Participants have a few options for public transportation to the playa, including the new BRC-supported Burner Express bus service operating from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. For more information on options, visit this page.
