AIRPORT SHUTTLE FAQs
Q: How long is the drive from the hotels/festival to LAX?
A: The drive from Indio to LAX is about 3 hours WITHOUT ANY traffic. Traffic within the L.A. metropolitan area and leaving the Coachella Valley can be quite heavy, especially during the morning and early evening hours. When selecting your shuttle time, please be sure to build in plenty of extra leeway time to account for traffic. We are not responsible if you miss your flight.
Q: Where will the pick-up location be for my arrival shuttle to the Coachella Valley area?
A: Due to ongoing construction at LAX the exact pick up location has not been confirmed, but we assure you it will be at or very near to the airport. Purchasers will be informed of the specific location as soon as it is confirmed.
Q: How close to the airport will the arrival shuttle stop be?
A: The shuttle stop will be within a very close distance to the LAX Airport, that being said, in order to ensure you do not miss your arrival shuttle, we advise factoring in at least an hour cushion time to land and make your way to the shuttle stop.
Q: Will my return shuttle take me directly to the LAX Airport?
A: Yes. All return shuttles will take guests directly to the LAX Airport.
Q: I missed my LAX Shuttle. What do I do?
A: Please tell the shuttle rep at LAX or at your hotel/shuttle stop. We will do our best to get you on a later bus depending on availability. Feel free to also reach out to Guest Services at 888-833-1031 for assistance.
Q: Can I purchase a shuttle pass at the shuttle stops?
A: Very limited passes may be available on-site, but are sold on a standby basis and are NOT guaranteed, so we strongly encourage you to purchase early.
Q: I’m staying at a hotel or property not listed as a shuttle stop. What are my options?
A: We would recommend that you ride the shuttle to the hotel that is the closest stop to your destination. Most destinations in the valley can be reached by a short cab ride from one of our stops. Please do NOT ride the camping shuttle.
Q: I purchased a LAX to Camping shuttle pass, but my festival wristbands are at will call. What do I do?
A: Please contact Valley Music Travel at 888-833-1031 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org so our shuttle team will be prepared to escort you to the box office to collect your festival wristbands upon arrival. Please be prepared to present a copy of your ticket confirmation email before boarding.
Q: The Airport Shuttle pass was purchased as a gift. How does the recipient receive the pass if I will not be there?
A: To accommodate this, the original purchaser must contact our Guest Services team at 888-833-1031 or email@example.com to authorize an alternate pick-up person. This authorization will allow a friend or family member to pick-up the package on the purchaser’s behalf. All informational emails and correspondence will still go to the original purchaser and it is up to them to relay the information to the guest that is attending the festival. Alternate pick-ups can be processed in advance through Valley Music Travel up to 2 weeks prior to the event date. Alternate pick-ups will not be authorized after Friday 3/27 for Weekend 1 or Friday 4/3 for Weekend 2.
Q: What if I change my mind and don’t want my package?
A: All packages are sold as non-refundable. Please refer to the purchase policy for complete details.
