Airport shuttle competition
 
The Villages Airport Transportation - $19 Fares - Groome Transportation

Very reasonable price and an ambitious schedule. I hope things work out for them. Thanks for posting.

Wonder how many stops are involved before the shuttle actually travels to a destination. That could take hours, especially that they offer door to door service.

I was on a shuttle once from Miami that offered door to door service. I was the last stop to get home. Not a fun day.

Based on our experience with Groome in the Denver airport to our daughters house in Fort Collins, The airport van drops off at their site in Fort Collins. 30 people get out into their smaller vans to take you to you home.

Their schedule defines home pickups prior to departure from their site with a specific departure time from their site. Not sure why it seems to take them an hour and 45 minutes to then get to MCO.

Let me sum up with one word......WOW!

Anyone know if that is the $19 is per person ... ?

pacjag 01-19-2020 08:51 AM

Of course it is per person.

For other questions please visit the link the OP posted. What we don’t know yet is where their Villages location will be.

This seems to be a great deal. Prior options were overly expensive.

$40 door to door is expensive ??

Well it certainly seems to be when this company is offering the same exact service for half the price.

Maybe leaving some leeway for traffic, weather. I'm quite sure if you were leaving to go to Orlando Airport by yourself and driving, you would probably leave an hour and 45 minutes before. Does this help to answer your question

What makes the difference if it's $19. for one or if it's $25. The Villages transportation is $40. a person. That's cheap if it's true!

Groome Transportation
 
I used Groome Transportation for years when traveling from the Atlanta Airport to Macon, Georgia to visit family. I found them to be reliable, and professional. The trip may take longer depending on stops though.

According to their schedule it could take up to 4 1/2 hours to get home from the airport. Sheesh I'd rather take a faster option even if it's 2 to 3 times as much money. $19 is dirt cheap and I'm thinking you get what you pay for.

I agree. That is way too long to get home from the airport. I would use another service.
