We’re Arriving In The Desert For Festival Season!

We’re excited to announce that Uber is returning to the Coachella Valley to bring you safe and convenient rides during the upcoming festival season. And we’re not only coming for the festivals – we’re here to stay! April marks the official launch of Uber in Palm Springs, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than enjoying great music under the desert sun.

This year, we’re bringing uberX, BLACK, SUV, and STRETCH (yes, limos!) with us to the desert. Read on to learn more!

REQUESTING RIDES DURING THE FESTIVALS

GETTING TO: Cars will be available throughout the Palm Springs area. You’ll be dropped off at the designated pickup & drop off area located in Lot 1C near the corner of Avenue 49 and Monroe (see map below).

LEAVING FROM: When you’re ready to head home (or keep the party going), cruise on over to the fully decked out Uber Lounge in Lot 1C where our awesome team will help you request a ride. Please do not request a ride inside the festival – all requests must be made at the Uber Lounge!
