Transportation To/From the Gathering

Many people are coming from all over the planet and are not sure how to get home.  Here are some suggestions, thoughts, ideas. I strongly recommend you call ahead to clarify all the information.

Greyhound - has a daily bus from Salt Lake City via Park City to Heber City (all in Utah).  It takes just over an hour from Salt Lake to Heber City (closest town to the gathering) and costs from $15 to $19 depending on how you pay. There is one run a day leaving SLC just after 7:00 a.m. local time.

You can also catch the Greyhound from Provo on the I-15 but I don't recommend it as according to Greyhound's website - it goes via Las Vegas,  Nevada and Denver, Co. and takes 2 days. :(

Both Salt Lake City and Provo have Amtrak service. Provo's station is a few blocks from far off Hwy South 189/University Avenue - which if you head north is the road to Heber City - but you're thumbing it. You can catch the Amtrak from Denver, Salt Lake City, or a 20 hour ride from Oakland, California.

From Heber City it shouldn't be too hard to catch a ride with someone heading towards the gathering.  If you are in Heber City, please do not pan handle, camp, be rude to the local towns folks, steal, or be mean to anyone no matter how mean they are to you.  Start creating the peace you wish to see in this world before you make it those last few miles home.

Another option is to check out the ride share links on the right hand side of this blog.

Finally, there's a kind Rainbow Brother who lives on Orem and is trying to help people get to the gathering from Orem or Provo. Email him  and ask for his phone number to talk to him and see what options are currently available. Please be kind and loving to him as helping family get home is a lot of work and he is being very generous with his time.


  1. Im in salt lake city and was planning on coming out to visit my step dad who is at the gathering. Where is the best place to park and hike in for a few hours as im not planning on staying over night? I assume there are sign? And I assume there will be some of the family floating around heber city to ask

  2. On May 21, 2013, the day that Sean vanished from San Francisco, CA, Sean’s last CELL PHONE call WAS PINGED by police to the eastern end of Golden Gate Park. Coincidentally, people headed to the Rainbow Family gathering (in Montana in 2013) were at Golden Gate Park at SAME DATE, TIME AND LOCATION of Sean’s cell phone ping.

    We do NOT know whether members of the Rainbow Family gave Sean a ride. We DO know that Sean REMAINS MISSING, since vanishing without a trace from San Francisco on May 21, 2013.

    Last Year, Claude (Sean's dad) traveled to the Rainbow Family gathering in Montana to search for Sean. The Rainbow Family warmly supported Claude in his search for Sean. This year (July 2014), friends of the search for Sean Sidi, will travel to the Rainbow Family gathering in UTAH, to spread the word about the search for Sean.

    PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD about the search for SEAN SIDI !!!! If YOU know anyone traveling to the Rainbow Family gathering AND/or anyone WHO LIVES in UTAH, PLEASE have them keep an EYE OPEN FOR SEAN.

    See www.seansidi.com or www.facebook.com/findseansidi for more information on the search for critically injured Sean Sidi, missing from San Francisco, CA since May 21, 2013. Sean, age 19 (age time of missing), is 5’5”, 120 lbs, slim build; Asian/White; dark brown hair & eyes; WEARS SILVER DENTAL BRACES; has dimples; right eye droops slightly. Sean may not know his name and may be disoriented due to a traumatic brain injury suffered shortly before going missing. He is in URGENT need of medical care.

I welcome healthy debate on ideas of interest to the 2014 annual gathering of the tribes.
