You've been burning since 2016 and you don't know about the Rideshare locations in Reno?
Get your ass over to:
  • Keystone Savemart, or
  • Reno Airport (see Air Playa Info)
Check this link viewtopic.php?f=508&t=82472#p1144744
or google eplaya for more advice

On Reddit you say you aren't actually in Reno, but are in Carson City.

In Carson City you might catch someone coming through from CA and they'll be going up 580 to Reno or over on 50 to Clark or Fernley. But the bulk of that traffic is likely over.

So get up to Reno. The rideshares are the better bet, as people are going there looking for people who need a ride.
But gas stations and walmarts are a good bet too, but less so in the south end of Reno as there is less Burner traffic there. The Walmart by the airport is good, as that's where a lot of Burners flying in go to, either before going to Keystone Savemart or back to the airport for a rideshare, or their rideshare took them while both got supplies.

DO NOT urber, taxi or otherwise pay someone to take you to Burning Man. Do to the BLM exclusion order, they're not allowed to be on the playa. Fines & arrest are possible. If you're dropped in Gerlach, you may find a deputy picks you up and you sit there until Burning Man is over and they have time to deal with you. YRMV

You must enter Black Rock City by vehicle - the vehicle you arrived in. Exceptions are only for Approved Vendors, like Burner Express bus. Which is why taxis to BRC are not allowed.
You will not be allowed into BRC without the above.
You can be fined.
Everyone can be turned away, possibly with/without tickets confiscated, with the vehicle blacklisted.
