Not sure if you already know about this,

Free transport for onsite campers to festival & back!


We have teamed up with Amtrak to create the COACHELLA EXPRESS. This one of a kind train will transport campers from Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles to Indio and back. Coachella, Amtrak and the city of Indio are working together to create a temporary train platform in Indio. From there, concert going onsite campers will be transported via shuttle buses to and from the onsite camping check in area at the polo field and the temporary station.

COACHELLA EXPRESS is FREE and open to anyone with an onsite camping and festival ticket. Reservations can only be made here. Space is limited and will fill up quickly on a first come first serve basis so don't delay! FILL OUT FORM ON BOTTOM OF PAGE. Form will be removed as soon as we hit capacity.
