    need a shuttle or something from mdw to sycamore illinios


    There is no scheduled shuttle from MDW to Sycamore. You'll either have to arrange for a taxi (flat rate is about $100) or Take the CTA Orange Line to Washington and Wells, then take the METRA UP-W train from Ogilvie Transit Center to Elburn, which is 15 miles east of Sycamore. There is no scheduled public transportation service to Sycamore.


  • How to Get to Kankakee, il
    Jan 2, 2015
    Need to know the name of the Bus Service that goes from Ohare to Kankakee, il........I tried all 7 of the ones on the ohare ground transportation and none of them go there...Anyone know the name of the one bus service that does?


    There is no scheduled direct bus service from O'Hare to Kankakee. 303 Taxi offers flat rate taxi service for $103 If you're looking for something cheap that will take a little longer, you can take the CTA blue line to downtown chicago (Clinton station) and take the Greyhound bus for $14-$26 or Amtrak ($7-$18) to Kankakee. It does appear there used to be scheduled bus service from O'Hare to Kankakee operated by a company called Lincolnland Expess, but it shut down in 2012.


    I know this is in response to an inquiry from almost 8 months ago but it looks like I have some information that would benefit others. This is just an FYI for anyone that could use this info...As a licensed taxi driver I can tell you the generally accepted rule for travel outside the metro Chicago area is 3 times the mileage, plus tolls, plus $2 departure tax.Travel from ORD to Kankakee is 74 miles so I would charge about $222 plus tolls and tax. If 303 can do it for less than $1.50 per mile with no return fare I'd be surprised. That may be the reason for the lowball fare. I can not pick up in Kankakee, maybe 303 can. good luck.

    I plan to book a flight that lands in terminal C and my connecting flight is in terminal F. I have 43 minutes between flights...will that be enought time if I take the shuttle?


    If your first flight is on-time it will be enough time but you'll have to hurry.


  • mexico city to acapulco transportation
    Apr 29, 2013
    we are a group of 7 passengers and looking for a private transportation from Mexico City International Airport to Acapulco. Need to know availability and pricing.


    There are some agencies that can help you arrange for a van. I would guess it might cost a few hundred USD. It's a 4-5 hour trip. You could also fly - Aeromexico fares are about $139 USD per person one way right now. Mexican LCC Interjet also flies the route and might be cheaper.


    Thanks for the fast response. Do you have contact details for those transportation agencies?

  • Shuttle Bus/Shared ride service?
    Oct 16, 2013
    Hi, Moving to San Antonio in June. Need to commute from Potranco and 1604 area to the airport at least once a month. Are there any $30-$40 shuttle services I can hire? Thanks!


    Did you ever find a ride? I need to get to the airport and I am from the same area as you... let me know please


  • Baggage Transfer
    Apr 11, 2013
    Hi. Im travelling on United from Atlanta to Houston & then connecting to Dubai on Emirates. How can I tranfer my baggage between the terminals? Are we allowed to take the luggage trollery in the Terminal link?


    No, you cannot take a luggage trolley on TerminaLink. However, if you have to claim your baggage then re-check it with Emirates in D (and you don't arrive in Terminal C or E on United), then you can take your baggage on the Inter-Terminal Train which runs outside security. Also, if you arrive in Terminal C on united then you won't have to take your bags on any train and can just walk to Emirates in D.

    RT to Kerrville?


    There is no scheduled shuttle service to Kerrville, you'll have to either get a taxi or rent a car. There's also two daily Greyhound buses from downtown san antonio to Kerrville, but you would have to get downtown to use that so it probably wouldn't be worth it.


  • ride to york penna
    Apr 2, 2013
    I will need a shuttle to York, penna from philadelphia, airport.


    There are no shuttles between PHL and York. Your only options are to rent a car or take the SEPTA into downtown philadelphia and then take the Greyhound bus to York. Or get a Taxi which would cost about $200.


  • time to Termini
    Jun 5, 2013
    About how long does it take to clear the airport and get to Termini Station? Arriving via LHR from the US. I know the express itself is 30-35 minutes. How much time should be allowed to clear non-Schlengen customs, etc.? Thanks!


    I would guess with walking to the station and clearing immigration, you will arrive at Termini about 2-2.5 hours after your scheduled landing time.


  • cheap transport for 6ppl 10bags
    Mar 24, 2013
    looking for the cheapest most reliable transportation for 6 adults with 10 suitcases from LAS to lake las vegas can be van, minibus, anything that will fit us! thanks!!


    At LAS, RTC public buses are available to downtown Las Vegas via Bus 108, and Bus 109 takes you to the South Strip Transfer Terminal, the Consolidated Rental Car facility and to Maryland Parkway. Beside shuttle vans, the ACE Gold Line bus runs along the Las Vegas Strip and connects with Route 109 south at the South Strip Transfer Terminal (there is no direct bus service to The Strip).


  • T3 tram after arriving.
    Mar 21, 2013
    I am flying into Terminal 3 and then taking the WAX bus. Is it possible to take the T3 tram to Gate D and then take the other tram to Terminal 1 baggage claim? Or is my only option to wait for the airport shuttle outside T3 to drive me to T1? The two trams just seem quicker.

  • picking up international traveler
    Mar 16, 2013
    We are picking up some Italian friends who will be arriving on Lufthansa this afternoon from Frankfort. They are coming into terminal D but I think we pick them up at Terminal E International Arrivals. (They will have checked luggage.) Is that correct?


  • shuttle bus from vung tau to airport
    Mar 12, 2013
    hello, I was recently lucky enough to be directed to a bus van shuttle from the airport at Ho Chi Minh City that took us all the way to Vung Tau, the tourist capital of south vietnam. It was about a 3 hour journey, and would have cost us a few hundred U.S.$ for a regular taxi, but this van shuttle bus cost only about 15$ U.S. Now I struggle to remember what the NAME of this great shuttle bus company was, and WHERE exactly they drop you and pick you up in Vung Tau? Does anybody know? (p.s. - this shuttle service is NOT part of a 'tour package' - it's available for ANY traveller)
