Shuttle Express


Reservation: We were deciding whether to get a taxi or a share-ride van service. We're glad we decided on Shuttle Express share-ride van. Big bear asked for a ride right there and then at the inner drive curb on the third floor of the airport garage.

It didn't smell like smoke either so that was good.Service: The driver was nice. The drive was alright. It was better than what we expected.Price: $$ good enough.
