Ride Share Versus Direct Shuttle
Whether going to or from the airport, a ride share shuttle will make multiple stops picking up passengers. This is type of service is common in larger markets. t With a direct shuttle service, it is a ride to or from the airport without making stops and picking up other passengers. With our shuttle service, it is for the most part a direct shuttle. However, occasionally we may make a stop along the way to pick up or drop of other passengers. For those customers that want a private shuttle, we offer that service at a minimal charge.
