If you have never been here, you may be wondering what the best options are for getting around Palm Springs. Should you rent a car, ride share, call a cab, or take the bus? Many of these options are available for you to do right here in town. Here are the best ways to get around Palm Springs:
Getting Around by Car
Perhaps the easiest way to travel in Palm Springs is by having access to your own car. While there are many things to do in town, several of the outdoor trails and parks are a drive away. Travelers can easily rent a car from a Palm Springs car service inside the Palm Springs International Airport if you are flying in. Booking a rental car will be the most expensive option but it will make it easier for you to get around.
Getting Around by Bus
Travelers can also easily take the bus around Palm Springs with ease. There are currently 15 routes through SunLine Transit Agency, one of the many Palm Springs transportation services, and it costs $1 for adults and 50 cents for seniors. The Green Line No. 24 goes right through downtown Palm Springs but has limited hours and runs every 20 to 40 minutes. While the bus can save you money, it will require additional planning to get around town.
Getting Around by Ride Share or Taxi
Palm Springs is busy enough to where you can easily find a cab on the weekends in downtown. During the week is another story, however. For those who are tech savvy, both Uber and Lyft operate in California, making it easy to book a ride straight from your phone. Ride sharing makes it easy to get around without having to book a rental car in advance.
Getting Around Palm Springs by Foot
Many places in downtown Palm Springs can be easily accessed just by walking there. However, not everything will be in walking distance from some of the rental properties. Walking is a great way to stretch those legs, but make sure to have vehicle plans prior to your arrival.
