‘Dollar Van Demos’ operating in New York is a budget public transportation alternative created by young Brooklyn entrepreneurs offers commuters a cheap ride, while the van also doubles as a showcase stage for talented musicians and comedians.

For one dollar, cash-strapped New Yorkers can enjoy a Brooklyn commute with a side of live entertainment, serving as a captive audience for the entertainers.

The group describes the ride as "cheap, adventurous and now immensely entertaining with the addition of performers singing their hearts out."

The ad-hoc shows are recorded and later posted onto the group’s YouTube page.
