While taking to the road isn’t everyone’s first choice on a getaway, if you’re looking to explore beyond the boarders of downtown Palm Springs, it’s definitely a good way to go. Palm Springs is rather compact with an amazing walkable downtown, so having a car during your stay is definitely not necessary, especially if you are staying close to downtown. However, renting a vehicle allows you to set your own schedule and pace and delivers accessibility to some of those out of the way highlights.
Taxi services are provided at the Palm Springs International Airport with pick-ups and drop-offs allowed outside the terminal building.
Rideshare companies Uber and Lyft (also known as Transportation Network Companies) provide pick-ups and drop-offs at the Palm Springs International Airport.
Drop-offs are allowed curbside in front of the terminal building.
For pick-ups, follow the Rideshare signage to the designated area located at the south end of the terminal (click here to see pick-up location), in the commercial lane across the street from WestJet Airlines.
