Reno is the closest
airport followed by Sacramento then Oakland and San Francisco. Use the High Sierra rideboard to find a ride from the airport.
Plumas Transit provides limited shuttle service between the Reno airport and the festival grounds (reservations and more info):
A limited number of on-site vehicle passes are available for purchase. See Camping
& Parking for parking options.
Drive safely. The California Highway Patrol is a vigilant presence on the roads leading into the fairgrounds. Hwy 70 into and out of Quincy is a beautiful drive through the Feather River Canyon. However, it is a winding road with lots of turns, upgrades and downgrades. Please be careful when traveling on this road. Sleep before you hit the road, and always be aware of your surroundings. Simple advice, but many of us neglect these things and sadly this has led to fatalities. Sleep deprivation has been the direct cause of automobile-related deaths following the festival. Please be smart and drive safely.
