What is a shared ride?
A shared ride is where you may have to wait a few minutes on other guest that arrived on the same flight and/or time your plane landed. Customers will share a transfer or pick up others headed in the same direction. There may also be additional sequenced stops along the way.
What is the pick-up window?
For shared-ride please allow for 15-minutes within your scheduled pick-up time. For example, if your scheduled pickup time is 9:00am, the taxi will arrive between 9:00am and 9:15am. This allows for our guests to be completely ready for travel when the taxi arrives and for our drivers to fulfill the travel schedule. Private and VIP transfers are not subject to a schedule and will be picked up at an agreed time.
