Smile Cost of a cab ride

after reading Kukis post on the cost of the cab ride from LAX to the terminal ($70.00) I called Prince to see about buying a transfer much to my surprise cheaper to take the cab ($98.00 round trip per person) Might have to leave a couple days early so we can walk to the ship

Try Super Shuttle. A r/t quote showed $29 first guest, $9 second = $38 one way or $76 r/t.

We have never used them personally but they are the most popular here and all my officemates use them when traveling. Their online program does charge an 18% tip but I heard you can change that so look for that or just grab one at LAX. A couple others are Primetime and Karmel.

I have used Super Shuttle three times in Tampa. They are right at the airport and will take you where ever you need to go; they have an office at the airport and post the cost of trip; the cost is based on zones; zone 1 might be around the airport within five miles; zone 2 might expand to twenty mile radius; but they are reliable and cheap.

I HATE SUPERSHUTTLE.

WE used them once in 1999 and never again. THey picked us up in an un-airconditioned mini van. Someone had been carsick and the van reaked (sp?). The driver also drove like a crazy person (no wonder someone had been sick in his vehicle).


You can also negotiate fixed-rates wtih cabbies. This can be advantageous, as when the driver is awaiting entry to the pier, in a long line-up, the meter keeps ticking and can go up by a few $$.
