Coachella Shuttle Service!

It appears that Goldevoice has FINALLY instituted a park-and-ride shuttle system for Stagecoach and Coachella.

Can I get a "HOO-RAY!"?

The following can currently be found on Stagecoach's website:

Local Hotel Shuttles
Take the convenient shuttle to and from the show each day. We will be making multiple trips from each hotel, so if you want to go early and hang out at the festival, or stick around and soak up the sun at your hotel, we've got you covered. At the end of the show, your ride will be lined up and waiting for you. We'll have "Bus Counselors" on site to assist you getting to and from the show with ease!
• One (1) 2-day Shuttle pass for unlimited transportation to and from the hotels serviced.
• Shuttles will run from 2 hours before the first band of the day, until 2 hours after the last band leaves the stage at night.
• Shuttles will be running continuously throughout the day.
• Festival Tickets are not included in the purchase of a local hotel shuttle pass.

There are two routes shown on Valley Music Travel's website and both routes service the major hotels in the area. VMT's website also indicates that Coachella festival information is coming soon.

This is a win/win for everyone. If you don't want to drive, you can park at one of the hotels and ride in-hopefully they have a route set up for the shuttles that avoids the parking lot traffic. If you do end up driving, there will be less traffic, therefore loosening up the parking lot traffic.
