Remember it's not TV thinking about the poor citizens of TV because if they weren't making money on this it wouldn't be in business now! Sorry Villages that I'm so negitive.
This is a private business, TV has nothing to do with it
Do not worry about things you can not change

Since Signature Van Service went out of business The Village Van Service not only have raised their prices but their service has deteriorated.

At first looks sounds like a snafu, but it would be interesting to find out some of the circumstances. Out of the initial group how many were reserved customers and how many were walk on . If 50/50 it would answer a a few questions. Being a holiday probably added to the problem. If they were expecting 12 for a vanload and 25-30 show...not gonna work. It may have took a while for dispatch to 1 find a driver 2 a van 3 process any walk on payments, 4 figure best route to get everyone to their destination in a timely manner. Your explanation may very well have been a giant fiasco or could have been remarkable given the circumstances. Think about it.

When they first started up as an Airport service they were a "gift". The Villages was much smaller then and you did not have to traipse all over TV picking up and dropping people off. Now, it is a disaster. I live near 466 which means I may be the first to be picked up and the last to be dropped off ............. I could put up with that, but the last time we took their Van to Orlando they actually came off the highway to pick people up outside TV.

It is not rocket science people - employ someone who understands the demographics of TV and books their transportation vans accordingly.
A people free to choose will always choose peace.

Same experience on my last trip. Sat on half of a seat with a large woman in the middle who had a dog in her arms who kept licking me and she thought it was cute.

You were fooled and got probably what you thought was the shuttle operated by the Villages. I almost made that mistake once but the Villages shuttle has never let us down - ever!

After reading all these, I'm even happier that we use a door to door service called Superior Limousine Service 352-552-5546 Whether we are cruising or going to either of the two Orlando airports and whenever we book they are always on time, no matter what.
You've worked hard to enjoy retirement...go ahead and treat yourself, leave less for the kids and grand kids.

Please let me know what service you used. I need a private van pick up in March. I have 7 pieces of luggage a dog and three adults! I don't want to put others out with all of us.

In the near future I hope to see that The Villages Transportation will begin service to and from the Orlando/ Sandford Airport.
