Travel isn’t always fun and games. I’ll be the first to admit when I hope off of a plane I look and feel like death warmed over, but it’s nice to know that I’ve got a comfy bed waiting for me somewhere, preferably after I shower first! But if you’re like me, you might have thought that shuttle services were something that you should avoid at all cost. I mean, waiting around for a bus to come pick you up after you’ve been on a plan for who-knows-how-long doesn’t sound like fun, does it? Well let’s bust some of those myths surrounding shuttle services and their providers once and for all.
Myth #1: “Airport shuttle services aren’t efficient.” Wrong. Did you know that in the United States there are 16,000 vans and shuttle buses working for charter services that allow travelers to get from the airport to their destination quickly and efficiently. Plus if you’re thinking that the emissions from a shuttle are unjustifiable, think again! Motorcoaches are three times more efficient in reducing carbon dioxide output compared to a commuter bus and five times more efficient than transit buses.
Myth #2: “Shuttle services are only helpful if you’re at an airport.” Nope.> If you’ve got a special event coming up, look into charter bus rentals near you to get you where you need to go. Whether you’re planning a wedding and looking to get the bridal party to and from the ceremony and reception or if you’re looking to help guests get to the reception, know that charter buses allow guests to travel quickly and prevent anyone from getting lost!
Myth #3: Most shuttle services are only available if you’re renting a charter bus or limousine.” So close, but not quite. While it’s true that shuttle service providers offer charter buses and limousines, if you’re looking to rent a town car you’ve still come to the right place. Not only do these service providers provide transportation to and from airports for larger groups, if you’re looking for a town car to take you straight to the office or your hotel room, you’re in luck.
With three million people traveling safely on commercial airlines each day, and national airports located within 31 states,it’s important to educate ourselves as to what airport shuttle services are helpful for us all, but don’t forget that these providers can offer more. Give them a call, let them know what you need, and see just how much they can help.
