Ride Share - Airport/Conference 2014
« on: May 20, 2014, 05:24:35 AM »
Started this thread to be a common place to establish ride shares between the airport and hotels in Grand Rapids.  Cabs are the most common way.  They charge per trip, not per person.  I'm told that $34 is the average cab fare.

I have this posted on another thread as well:

Guess I have nothing to lose.  I'm staying at the Riverfront and arriving on Monday at 11:00 a.m.  I'll be departing for the airport on Sunday, anywhere around 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. will work.  From another thread, Metro Cab looks good (although I'm open to other suggestions).  Message me if you're interested in sharing a cab ride.




Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

I think we've hit on the solution - Fred and Crispy should serve as shuttle drivers for all conference attendees arriving at the airport.

That could be a bad precedence for San Diego next year, if you know what I mean!

Fortunately, I don't live near SD - so no sweat for me!

For the record, I'd give them a generous tip.  Actually, someone with a decent-sized mini van could make a killing shuttling folks to and from the airport.

As if Fred, Crispy, or I live any closer to GR.
