    Ah, but if you keep expenses down, you can have more vacations.

    My guess is that overall I pay $700, including food, water, and gas.

    I bought a hotel shuttle pass long ago. I can't be the only one so I doubt there were 15,000 left this morning. That said, I can see the value in the pass I bought because I don't have to drive at all.

    A shuttle to remote parking, however, isn't a perk. I'd consider it to be worse than parking onsite if I was going to drive to the polo grounds anyway. Sure, maybe it will help with overall traffic, but that's something that should just be factored into the general expense of running the festival when they decide ticket prices. Once the main lots fill, you get directed to a remote lot and have to board a shuttle--and they could encourage people to use the remote lots on their own to spread out traffic for those who might prefer it.

    The way they're doing it here is like charging someone on an airplane extra to sit in the middle seat. And since most of those people probably won't bother to park in the remote lot and just look at it as a tax on the ticket price for waiting too long, it's not going to help traffic much at all. So if the main lots fill up will they be directing people who didn't pay that extra $50 to a remote lot?

    it is confusing as to what exactly a shuttle pass is. if it is from nearby hotels to the event, and i was staying at one of said hotels, i'd see a lot of value in it.

    I don't know if you cut off the rest of my post, but I said I learned my lesson. I bought my ticket, but this is going to be one more reason for my friends to say, "it's too much money." Instead of carpooling in my rental, we will collectively have to cough up $250 for shuttles. Oh well.

    To everyone who is bitching about GV forcing you to buy tickets. STFU

    This year they announced the dates way back in August which gave you enough time to secure a place to stay.

    They gave you the option of buying tickets since December. If you didn't move on this quickly it's your own damn fault.

    Now I understand some of us have bills to pay or no job and I sympathize. Seriously though if your 21 + you should at least have $150 saved by the time Coachella lay away went on sale. If you didn't your lame and should really learn to save money.

    I've been going since 2004 and I never wait for the line up to be released. I have such a fucking awesome time every year that I don't care who headlines I save my money and buy my tickets and get my place asap.

    That is all.

    I don't understand why more people don't want to take shuttles in the first place. I'm staying with 12 people in a house this year in Palm Desert and all of us bought shuttle passes. We're gonna drive over to the hotel and shuttle it over to the venue. The facts that they have separate routes into the festival so they're not sitting in traffic, they drop you off closer to the the front gates, and it only takes about 20 minutes to get on a shuttle heading back to the hotel at the end of the night make it SO much more appealing than sitting in traffic for 2-3 hours every night like we did last year. That way, we get back home quicker and can hop in the pool for a night swim and night caps.

    if you stuffed into an account at least US$2.00 into an account everyday, you'd have enough for tickets in less than a year. of course that's not counting airfare, lodging, food, etc.

    but like i said in another thread, budgeting for coachella is like anything else, when you're going to make a purchase, ask yourself "is this latte now worth no coachella next year?"

    look at like this:

    you just paid $50 to learn a valuable lesson, don't procrastinate when it comes to coachella. money well spent IMHO.

    The one year I didn't camp, the hotel ran a shuttle on its own. It was a *terrible* experience - it was next to impossible to catch it to go back, it ran erratically and unpredictably, and just generally was so unworth it that after trying it the first day, we drove the next day.

    I'm sure... you're not allowed within a square mile without your festival wristband on. No way a shuttle is going to take you there without one.

    In all honesty, I'm starting to warm up to the idea, as long as the damn thing doesn't get stuck in traffic. I've had my own share of traffic nightmares after festivals, the worst of which was last years Mile High. Broken glass bottles disabled a dozen or so vehicles, creating a giant dusty field of confused drivers. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    my budget dictates how to handle things. right now with 2 kids in competitive athletics such as baseball and volleyball, you gotta work around it. but you figure it out and this will be the 5th straight year going to coachella.

    to the ones whom are bitching. just stop. do your homework and learn from it.

    you will find a ticket at a decent price if you just look!!!!

    DONT BE SO STUPID YOU MORONS!
