My friends and I are staying at the Hampton Inn in Palm Desert and we were planning on taking a taxi to the venue, I was wondering if anyone has experience doing this and if anyone would like to join in on our taxi to cut costs. There will be three of us, we would like to get a taxi van!

So much easier to take a shuttle.

Hampton Inn Palm Desert looks to be a 5-8 minute walk to the last shuttle stop (Homewood Suites) on the JW Marriott Line, by my calculations.

If I have the indian wells tennis garden shuttle pass, can I take the JW Marriott line?

A five to eight minute walk is well worth not having to deal with all the hassle.

From the VMT FAQ http://valleymusictravel.com/coachella_faq.php

Yes, you can change your shuttle line by calling (888) 833-1031 until Feb 7th for Shuttle/Ticket Combo and March 3rd for Shuttle only purchasers. After these dates, no changes will be allowed. However, If you have purchased a GA Festival Pass/Shuttle Pass Combo and you wish to switch it to a hotel shuttle stop, you must be a registered guest at the respective hotel. If you are not staying at any of these hotels, feel free to switch to any of our Park & Ride Stops!

Nope, but you can try to trade with someone.

If enough riders kick in a few bucks for the shuttle driver to go another .5 mile we might get door to door. Driver dependent.
