    Default Taxis after festival?

    I'm carpooling with a few friends but in case we split up or want to stay later are there taxis services that can pick us up from the festival? What do you recommend?

    You should be able to Pre-arrange a pickup time and spot with a private driver, but probably not a taxi. It might be a little costly. That would be your best bet. Finding a taxi night of is impossible.

    They are not aloud, but they are allowed to pick up passengers after the fest. Ive seen the line people were waiting in, you should plan some thing else. It looked like an hour wait at least.

    according to coachella.com, there is a designated taxi (and parent) drop-off and pick-up location: Corner of 52nd Ave and Madison St. i've never had to try and get a cab at the end of the night, but i would imagine it is extremely difficult and takes a while.

    go to the passes thread and get close shuttle pass if possible. I see some in there for 20 bucks, which is less then 1 taxi ride and no taxi line wait.

    Yo dude I went last year thinking a Taxi would be a good idea. It was not a good idea the line up for Taxis is huge and it is always like 2+ hours wait. We always ended up walking down the street flagging down cars for a ride to our hotel. It wasn't cheap either it was about 50$ for a 5 - 10 minute ride to our hotel. Shuttle passes are the way to go.

    You really should try and arrange to get your taxis done before the festival. Good luck trying to fax your W-2's to your accountant from the Sahara tent whilst random perverts tap your shoulder & blow on your neck. Just sayin...

    A 3 mile trip in PS is $20 plus tip. A 12-mile trip would therefore cost about $80 + tip. Don't do it.

    Yes, we know. You spam countless threads with your trash listing. You also scalp tickets. Just go away.
