A shared-ride shuttle service offers a budget friendly alternative. The per person rate is estimated at $25 one way, but can vary. Reservations can be made in advance online or by calling the numbers listed below. If travelling with more than one guest we generally suggest a taxi or chartered sedan, as rates then become comparable and there is a possibility you will have to stop at multiple locations to allow other passengers to board or disembark during your transfer via a shared-ride shuttle service.
