Thread: TX to Coachella WKND 1 (IH-10)

    Default TX to Coachella WKND 1 (IH-10)

    Hi. This is my second Coachella and first Weekend 1.

    Last year I took a Greyhound bus from San Antone to Indio and it was $162 total round trip. It is about a 25 hour ride with several stops along the way, El Paso, Las Cruces, Tucson, and Phoenix.

    It was my first and only experience with Greyhound and it was a cheap route to get to Coachella. I had no complaints with the service for what I paid.

    I am looking to do the same thing this year and looking for anyone who may want to link up along the way and talk music and anything else.

    Cheers,

    Eric

    What airline and how far in advance did you get the tickets? That is a great deal.

    I usually fly united into lax. I start searching in January and Look everyday until I see a deal. Ussually 3 weeks is out is the best price but 4-6 weeks works out as well. If you wait too long after 3 weeks they go up.

    Much more to fly to Ontatio than lax from Houston as we are a hub and so is lax for united.

    I believe we arrived about 10 minutes before the scheduled arrival time. I got to the Indio bus stop at about 6 AM Friday morning. They are pretty good about staying on schedule in my experience going to Cali and coming back to Texas.

    Will consider. Also considered Palm Springs as it is the closest to Indio.

    I'm still on the fence over taking the Greyhound or flying there. One drawback about the airplane is I know I couldn't sneak any party supplies with me.

    flying to PSP tends to be expensive though, that's the thing.

    Driving in from Houston. Looking for car camping if you can swing it. If not, maybe we can at least share a ride and lessen all of our expenses. This is our 3rd year going. If you are down we can figure out logistics.

    Good day,

    Reezy, I would have loved to catch a ride with you but I ended up buying a plane ticket through Southwest to land in LAX Thursday the 10th. I became a bit anxious in getting the best deal for my ride over to Coachella and hadn't make the connections I wanted to by the time I wanted to (a month in advance).

    I've yet to determine any lodging but have reserved a rental car that I will sleep in worse case scenario.

    I'm game to meetup at the festival with my fellow Texans if we are interested in any of the same acts.

    Thanks everyone for your replys.
