    why the fuck would you fly to carlsbad??

    Carlsbad to Indio is far. 107 miles, according to Google. Carlsbad is a northern suburb of San Diego. The airport there is tiny. I mean, they might have a cab waiting when you get in. Maybe.

    why the fuck would you fly to carlsbad??

    I doubt anyone else is flying into Carlsbad considering most people don't even know it has an airport, your best bet is finding someone in North County to pick you up from there and take you to the festival if you split gas money.

    He meant, 1.look through the carpool thread for someone offering a ride from San diego area, 2.PM one of those and ask for pickup near Carlsbad airport. I'm sure you can offer gas money etc. in exchange. 3. Profit

    i live in carlsbad. there won't be a cab waiting there when you land, you will need to call. your best bets, in order of convenience: rent a car and drive yourself in about 2.5 hours for a lot of money. carpool with someone on the forums, probably $30 or $40 and the same amount of time. take a 20 minute cab to to the oceanside transit center for about $25 and either 1) take the amtrak with a bus transfer for $29 and 4.5 hours, or, 2) hop on a greyhound to indio for $22 and a 6.5 hour ride.

    the bus is probably your best bet if the first two options don't work out. it is a longer ride, but it is the cheapest and gets there the earliest. the amtrak solution doesn't arrive until almost 10pm.

    good luck!

    what airline flies into carlsbad? the plane will probably crash before you even get there, so don't stress too much.

    in a lot of the sites like expedia, orbitz, .... they show "1 ticket left" or "2 tickets left" but once you selected at payment they say that they are not available anymore,, and the ones available are all over 400 us dollars plus tax

    The last time That I flew in and out of Carlsbad was in the 90's. Very small prop planes (like 15 passenger) were all that flew there back then. I was on United and I swapped over to jet at LAX. I suspect it's still pretty much like that.

    Very few services there. A car or someone to give you a ride really will be your best options. Otherwise, the transit center route may be to only other option reasonable option. There's just not really any mass transit there.

    The airlines don't like that. Odds are they wil cancel your return leg. They do that to stop people from doing what you're considering and getting off somewhere other then your booked flights.
