The vehicles carrying music lovers, and covered in paint that proclaims "Carpoolchella" are pulling into town.
Tens of thousands of music lovers are making their way to the desert Thursday night as Coachella Music and Arts Festival gets underway.
And that means driving in some areas is about to get really troublesome at times.
A couple roads nearest to the polo grounds will be closed.
And expect delays on Jefferson, Washington and Monroe streets which busy from the festival to the Interstate 10.
Highway 111 will be busy through Indio.
But recent street and sidewalk improvements could help pick up the pace of traffic.
About 25,000 people will be shuttled in and out of the concert area, which should also help with the traffic.
And there is a non-emergency concert hotline.
If you have issues with traffic, or need information call 760-541-7800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
