    So awesome. And free!

    This is especially a great solution for the 18-21 age group who aren't old enough to rent a car.

    Also I hope this encourages people from San Diego/Sacramento/wherever to save gas and take the train instead of driving. Although I'm a little concerned about Amtrak trains running late and causing people to miss their connection. But maybe Amtrak is better than it used to be about that sort of thing?

    Awesome. I just made my girlfriend agree to blow me on trains today provided no males could see. This is all too convenient.

    This is so fucking awesome! Wow. Many thanks to Goldenvoice for this. I actually considered amtrak this year but their site kept telling me there was no route from LA to Indio. This is a million better than Greyhound. I'd definitely pay more than the Greyhound fee for this service, and it's FREE? Incredible.

    I'm getting 404 errors when I click submit...anyone else?

    if you have a confirmation number then you can use order number, we can tell whats up.

    if you mean barcode, if it is a 3-day ticket you can use one and we can tell.

    Genius! It's been a busy week for you, PF.

    Too bad I live EAST of Indio. There IS an overnight train from here that gets into Union Station at 9am every day...hmmmmmmm.

    this is absolutely perfect.
    the flyaway is super easy to find at the airport, and super cheap,
    and downtown union is a beautiful old station.
    AND, I'm thinking the train out into the desert will be an awesome experience.
    THANK YOU endlessly for this, PF and co. this was really the single missing link in this festival being truly accessible to younger travelers.

    and as an afterthought,
    HOW MUCH OF A FUCKING PARTY IS THIS TRAIN GOING TO BE?!

    Well, I care more about males seeing her blow me than she cares about females, that's for sure. Frankly, why would she care?

    If I couldn't get a ride, I was going to do the Greyhound again, which sucks because it's hard to get a cab from the campsite back to the Greyhound station. Now that's no longer an issue.

    This is amazing.

    I'm sure it's already costing them a lot of time, effort, money, etc to have one such train.
