We used to be coachellaridefinder.com a couple years ago but we made it redirect to http://www.rickyrides.com/search/coachella which lists both weekends. Coachellarides seems to be by Ridejoy. They do the same thing as Zimride pretty much. RickyRides is slightly different from both of them because it is solely event based. Also because it has a sweet map :)

So I contacted Rickyrides to get an estimate on how much it would cost to get a ride from the campgrounds to a location seven miles away and then back again.

FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS.

500 dollars.

Ricky, you wanna care to explain how in the FUCK that's fair pricing?

O wow. I don't think Randy is getting it. It's not a taxi service. I'm thinking if the creators of the website drove up to coachella to pick you up. Drive you 15 min. Then drop you off. Pick you up. Then drive all the way home. That's probably worth 500 dollars.

Nice pic though creep. That guy is handsome

nas4731
03-11-2014, 02:24 PM
I'm in SF currently. 500 miles at 30 mpg is roughly 66 dollars (x2) = 132 dollars + 30/hr (avg. taxi driver fee) x 17 hours of driving = 510 dollars. Plus food and wear and tear = 100. This all equals $742. Plus missing work to drive you. So it seems like a good deal!

Geez bro. You're freaking out about a price that was given.

nas4731
03-11-2014, 02:39 PM
O and add that yearly transportation license and liability insurance. BTW the breakdown is sarcastic. I'm not actually driving anyone. We are not affiliated with shuttling people or charging people. Can you please refrain from the name calling? It's very rude, abusive, and I personally consider it harassment. We are providing a way for people to rideshare.

Listen, RickyRides is not a shuttle service. It is a ridesharing/carpooling tool that people have been using successfully for many years for free.

When thelastmanstanding used our contact-us form to ask how much it would cost for us to personally drive him to and from the festival, nas4731 offered to do it for $500. Once I realized thelastmanstanding didn't know RickyRides was only for ridesharing/carpooling, we told him to use the site instead.

I think everyone is a bit angry at the moment, including nas4731 considering the name calling. Can't we all just get along?

Listen, if you aren't a transportation service, you shouldn't have given him a quote. Also, driving someone seven miles each way is not worth 500, no matter what convoluted math structure you and your partner use. Third, spamming the board with your website bullshit is annoying.

And speaking of which, I have a room to share. 2 king beds, non-smoking. So if you have the car but need a place, this is a perfect match because I have a place but need wheels!

$45 rides to Coachella April 11th 7am sharp. Black SUV Suburban, professional driver, and reliable service you can count on. My name is Gary email me for more information.


I have space for three people in my car going to Coachella from Los Angeles. Leaving early tomorrow morning. Asking $30 per person just so I can recoup the cost of the exorbitant parking ticket I had to buy yesterday! I'm parking VIP but I can let you off at the camp grounds entrance, or you can park with me if you have a VIP ticket. Happy Coachella!
