Default FT Lauderdale Airport to Miami

We are flying into Ft. Lauderdale Airport in January with a group of 6 adults. Any suggestions on the best way to shuttle to Miami? If we take a taxi we will need 2 cabs. Are there any mini-vans? Shuttle services? Approximate cost?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Karen

There is a shuttle service from FLL airport to the Miami pier or you can book your own van. I did this for a group of 8 and I believe that the cost was just over a $100. I think the shuttle service is about $15 per person. Log on to the Fll airport site and look for ground transportation.

My husband and I did the "share ride limo". I believe it was $13.00 per person and you are expected to give a tip. This was in April 2000. We gave the driver $30.00 for both of us. You just go outside at the level for ground transportation and there is a man at a podium who takes your name tells you how long the wait will be. The guy drives pretty fast. I was a little nervous. Renting a van might be the better way to go for that many people.

about how long did it take? We are arriving in FLL at 12:30 and our ship leaves around 5. Do you think we have enough time? I hope so..

It's about 30 minutes on a shuttle. Not a whole lot different than using MIA.

Thanks to all for the advice. Being able to get practical advice from those that have "been there", is much appreciated & one of the best things about this board.

Happy Sailing

Our motel shuttle dropped us off. We went up to the share ride guy and he just happened to have one leaving withing 5 minutes. It took about 25 minutes to get there. He drove soooo fast. I think the most you would have to wait is 1/2 hour. If you go to the airport website and look under ground transportation, I bet it tells you. I think you'd have time.
