How in heck can you get to the airport??

I have been amazed at the dearth of transport, or even of one shuttle, Super or otherwise, to get to the PS airport from La Quinta.

It seems if one is not in a residency club, renting a car or at a resort there is no alternative but a cab. With gratuity, this is quite nearly a $100 adventure. Anyone have any inside information? Best regards!

Dining, shopping and golfing options are so spread out in that area that renting a car is generally the option of people traveling that way.

I've gone down several times and even if we stay right in Palm Springs we rent a car because BF wants to golf at Indian Wells, La Quinta or elsewhere.

How do you plan to get TO La Quinta in the first place??

Most folks drive. This is not a large city with a massive public transport infrastructure. There are some local buses but that's it.

I used to live in La Quinta. There is a public bus. I saw it once. Rent a car. Unless you are staying at one of the big resorts with everything you need you will want a car.

Well, I live there part of the time, and figured someone might know something I don't! Never been in a fairly large area you could't catch a shuttle to/from airport. Thanks very much. Kindest regards.

Riff asked the best question. How do you plan to get there? And do you expect to spend all of your time at the resort?

I can't imagine being there without a car. For the price of your taxi/shuttle, you can rent one. You'll be glad to have it.
