The USO, located near the baggage claim, is a valuable resource but does not personally provide transportation for servicemembers. They will assist in any manner possible to find transportation from the airport to base but will not provide the transportation themselves. More info on the USO is available at http://www.bobhopeuso.org/our-locations/palm-springs-uso.html.
Soldier Organized Service (SOS) is a volunteer group that will provide free transportation to and from MCAGCC for Marines and Sailors. Marines may make transportation reservations in advance by either calling (760) 799-5488 or going to http://www.sosride.org. The point of contact at SOS is Erica Stone.
Transportation through the Morongo Basin Transit Authority (MBTA) is also provided. There are three pick up times Monday through Thursday at Palm Springs Airport: 0750, 1010, and 1650 with an additional time of 1900 on Fri. Two pickup times on Saturday: 1200 and 1800 and only 1800 on Sunday. Cost of MBTA is $10 Mon-Fri ($15 round trip) . Sat and Sun: $20 ($25 round trip).
Taxi Service: MCAGCC is about 55 miles from the airport, and a taxi can cost from $150-$175. Check with the taxi dispatcher in the front of the airport.
