The Coachella Valley is uniquely positioned to serve many larger markets in Southern California and beyond, and is fortunate to have the transportation resources to do so very effectively. The major corridor through the Valley is Interstate 10, the fourth largest interstate highway in the United States. The I-10 stretches coast-to-coast and is the lifeline connecting all of Southern California. The Coachella Valley is served by this main trucking and traffic artery.
In addition, Amtrak provides passenger rail service through its depot in Palm Springs, and the Valley is served by Greyhound Bus service. Intra-Valley transportation is facilitated by SunLine Transit Agency, that blankets the Valley with clean, reliable, natural gas powered public transportation for residents and visitors at a very reasonable cost.
AirportsThe area is served by three airports: the Palm Springs International Airport in the heart of Palm Springs provides access to cities across the country and globe. The airport serves over 1.5 million airline passengers a year, connecting to the 10 largest airline hubs in the country.
At the east end of the valley, the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport provides superior service to private aircraft to and from the Coachella Valley. The Regional Airport is also part of the Empowerment Zone, and Redevelopment area, so it is ripe with economic growth opportunities.
A smaller public airport is located at Bermuda Dunes, just a quarter-mile from Interstate 10. Bermuda Dunes Airport has been providing support and fueling services to aircraft for over 50 years.
