    Default Taxis?

    Just wondering what kind of prices taxis are in LA? I'm looking to go from LAX to a supermarket (there's a Wal-Mart in Crenshaw, but if anyone knows a more convenient one please let me know) and then from there to the downtown Greyhound stop.

    Also might be getting a taxi from the Indio stop to the polo fields, how easy/hard is it gonna be to find one at about 10pm?

    Any help with anything above would be greatly appreciated as I'm travelling alone, thanks.

    look up some numbers to taxi companies on google so when you get into indio you can give them a call just in case there aren't any waiting at the station. getting a cab shouldn't be too hard, imo, though.

    found this on the fodor's travel site through google:

    By Taxi
    Don't even try to hail a cab on the street in Los Angeles. Instead, phone one of the many taxi companies. The metered rate is $2 per mile, plus a $2 per-fare charge. Taxi rides from LAX have an additional $2.50 surcharge. Be aware that distances between sights in L.A. are vast, so cab fares add up quickly. One relative bargain, though: for a $4 flat fare, up to four passengers may use a taxi to visit downtown attractions within the "One Fare Zone," which is bounded by the Harbor Freeway (I-110) to the west, Main Street to the east, Pico Boulevard to the south, and the Hollywood Freeway (U.S. 101) to the north.

    I believe is better if you catch a taxi around the venue or if you try to go to a walmart, vons, raphs or any supermarket around. Check online, it's gonna be cheaper for you, and probably you might find a ride.

    i would suggest calling them and asking for an estimate to go from A to B (have addresses handy).

    for coachella there is a list of local taxi companies on the website.

    good luck
