I have used them since they started their business. Yes, they are reliable and they are on time and they get you there on time. BUT, since TV has grown substantially they are now picking up from one end of TV to the other and it is a real pain to have to sit through so many pick-ups. Plus, the last time we came home there were people going back to towns outside TV, also we had to meet another bus that was taking a couple to Ocala and that was more than frustrating.

So how much longer we will use them is up in the air. We may go back to a private hire car for quicker and more efficient service with less frustration.

If there are two of you, Witte car service is the best at $85 a trip. Pick you up at your house at a time you choose; nobody else in the car. For return they meet your plane even if it's delayed. We've used them for years (was Charlie Witte, but he passed away, so now it's his wife Jane). They have several drivers, all reliable. Courteous, reliable, and private. Do a search for Witte on TOTV. I've posted Jane's phone number before. I don't have it right now.

Kaybee please take a look at Tim's home phone number, the last five numbers cannot be correct. I would like to have his phone on hand

The airport van is reliable, but not the best option if you live north of 466. You will be one of the first pick ups going to the airport and one of the last drop offs from the airport. If you don't mind adding about an hour tour through the Villages to your ride the service is reliable. It's only going to get worse for the Northern residents as Fenny gets built out.

I stopped using them due to the reasons you mention. It was a good service but unpredictable.

Villages transportation. Pick up at your home if needed and transported to either Lake Sumter or Brownwood to catch the bus. Comfortable, reliable and always on time. We use them a lot. You can view their schedule on line.
