Shuttle Types - Ride Share versus Direct Shuttle

A “Ride Share” type shuttle, as the name implies,  will generally make multiple stops picking up passengers along the way. Our service, for the most part is a direct shuttle service with the occasional extra stop.  With Pensacola Airport being a relatively small airport, on a typical trip we will transport a few passengers or small group. There may be an occasion whereas there may be an additional stop along the way to pick up additional passengers. We try to keep that to  a minimum to insure a comfortable ride for our customers. Customers that want do not want to make additional  stops can request a private shuttle for an additional charge (See rate page).
