They definitely have issues. Most of them are with customers that don't turn on their phones or give home phone numbers instead of cell numbers .

I don't have the answer either, that's why I pay for their service but if Idon't get what 8ve paid for, then I'm not a happy customer.

I'll keep you all update

Thank you.

If the Bus was taken in conjunction with a cruise booked with YT no refund will happen as the bus was FREE!

See my post on Yankee Trails Bus posted today 1/24 /19 Our experience from Miami was Outstanding. Things can happen from cruise ships. Ours was 3 hrs late coming into port. It was supposed to arrive at 4 am but didn't get there until 7am. This made us late getting off by about 45 minutes and we were in such a hurry not to miss the bus that I picked up the wrong suitcase ( I need some excuse!) (see the full story in my post). Finally got our cell phone working ( after a few tries I needed to power down and on again) and called the driver. He was there waiting and said we don't leave passengers > that was a big relief because I was really concerned. Would I use them again (that drive and parking isn't fun and free is pretty good) - YES!

Port Everglades is a nightmare for traffic, often with no direct route from one dock to another, and the buses have to wait for a slot to open up so will usually carry on to pick up from the next ship rather than just wait in line.

Add in passengers who refuse to leave the ship until they can see the bus, forgetting that there are lines to get through customs and immigration.

We have never had to wait long for YT from getting off the ship to getting out of the port, but every minute can be frustrating when you just want to get home.

Talking The Answer

I believe the answer is that a passenger has 15 minutes for the bus to wait and then it leaves if they are not at the right spot..period. We have been held up a number of times by people who have no consideration and they should be warned of the consequences for being late. One time time in Rome on a tour van with about 14 passengers we had one couple that always was late returning and it was beyond annoying. Finally at one stop they came back 1/2 hour late and two guys on the van told them to get off. When they resisted they threatened them and they got off. all clapped. There has to be consequences for acts of disrespect for others and it should carry to all circumstances.
