Its speculation at the moment, but from the looks of it the Indio trifecta of festivals are probably going to be implementing a new partnership with Amtrak as a means to create a new option to get to the festival. Sometimes the struggle to drive to(especially from) is real; this service would save carbon footprint, stress, and paint jobs during the best weekends of everyones life.
“The trains will run from L.A. Union Station to Indio, where folks will either be bused directly to the site or go via taxi or other means to their respective hotels,” said Greg Pettis, chair of the committee for Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Committee.
This sounds crazy at first, but in 2008, Goldenvoice implemented this plan and took people from LA’s Union Station to Indio. If this plan goes though, we’ll be seeing this service alongside shuttles to the venue or to hotels for the experience.
