View Full Version : Split a Taxi/Rent a Shuttle: Palm Springs Airport To Indio

I just finalized booking my flight for Coachella, and am staying at the Motel 6 in Indio. I figure there may be a lot of people trying to get to various hotels in Indio after landing in Palm Springs, and since taxis are expensive, some hotels don't offer shuttle services, and some of us aren't planning on renting a car, I've created this thread in case people are interested in comparing flight schedules and splitting the cost of a taxi and or shuttle rental to our hotel destinations.

I am ARRIVING at PSP on Thurs, April 14 at 10:00 PM, and my destination is the Motel 6 right be the corner of I-10 and Monroe.

My flight LEAVES PSP at 7:00 AM on Monday, April 18th...in case anyone else is needing to get to the airport super early, too.

Also, if anyone is renting a car from the airport that night and wants to give me + 1 a ride, we'll definitely chip in some $.

Cara, that's going to be like a $60 taxi ride (plus tip) each way. You'd probably be better off just renting a car for $120 or so for the full weekend.

But I wouldn't be using the car at all, and I hate the idea of paying money for something I'm not using. Splitting a taxi amongst 3-4 would end up being cheaper.

Thanks, pf. Hopefully I can find something on that site.

I don't think it would be $60 each way, for the record. It's $50 from PSP to Indio (as I found out one year).


Edit: actually, just calculated with a Palm Desert cab company. It's 4.3 miles from your hotel, so fare will be about $17.

Wait, the Palm Springs airport is 4.3 miles from my hotel? When I looked on google it said it's about 19 miles.


AM or PM?

PM! Should have put that.

We are picking someone up at PSP on the 10:04 pm Alaska Airlines flight that night from SFO. We're only going to Washington; Not quite making it to Monroe. Sorry :(

For realz though, assuming you're on the same flight, hit me up Cara and we can get you to your Motel 6.

I am on that flight! It's me and my boyfriend, so I doubt you have room for 2?

75% chance there will be room. If we get to the valley in time to drop everyone off at the house before going to the airport, then yes, we'll have room, but not if traffic sucks or if work keeps us from leaving LA early. It's still 3 months out, so feel free to keep this in mind as an option.

Well that would be fantastic. Thanks, Wes! I'll definitely keep that as an option :)

Shit, never mind. I didn't realize you were talking about cabbing it from PSP to the hotel. I thought you were talking about cabbing it each day from the Motel 6 to the Festival.

I also have a flight that leaves PSP at 7:00 am on Monday so I too need to get to the airport super early. I wont have a car. I'm camping at the festival grounds with some friends. I need to leave early on monday and they dont. I'm looking at my options. I'd be willing to split taxi fees from indio to PSP

Are you flying to SFO, Lady C? We might be on the same flight. Turns out my group and I ended up renting a car but I'm not sure if I will be returning it to PSP that morning or if another person not flying back will return it later in the day. Either way, I can either give you a ride or we can split a taxi!

So being hot or cute won't get you a ticket, but being average makes it happen? My mind is blown.

awwww.... I'm driving down by myself from East Bay.
I could have driven you, and dropped you off.

I'm flying to Colorado on Monday sorry. A ride or taxi to PSP works either way for me!

You must be thinking of someone different.
