Getting to Coachella is one thing; getting around Coachella is a whole other beast. If you're not conveniently camping on the festival grounds, you're going to have to maneuver your way around Indio, along with thousands of other revved-up festival-goers. Here's a guide to transportation around Coachella. PARKING Driving your own car? There is adequate parking adjacent to the festival grounds, just look for signs. Everyone in the vehicle must have their festival pass on their wrist in order to enter. Day parking is free and open from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Be careful; cars left after 2 a.m. will be towed. BUS The nearest bus stop is in downtown Indio, about three miles from the venue. Greyhound Bus, Sunline Transit Agency and Amtrak are all accessible here. TAXIS / UBER DROP OFF Send your taxi or Uber driver to LOT C located near the corner of Avenue 49 and Monroe Street. Pick up is located in the same area.

No bikes are allowed inside the venue, however. Do not lock your bike to gate openings/closings or art or it will be considered surrendered. Look for designated bike parking in LOT 11, subject to change. Motorcycle parking is located in LOT 11 (same as the ADA parking area). Source: DiscoverSD
