Tips for finding casual shuttle rides when you don't have a contact:
  • Ask your own dispatcher
  • Ask other drivers - your outfit and other outfits
  • Post an inquiry on the internet driveaway groups
  • Ask the shipper/receiver in the city where you need help
  • Check with the service desk or driver's lounge bulletin board at Freightliner or Kenworth dealerships and nearby truckstops
  • Check Super Shuttle [or call 800 BLUE-VAN (258-3826)]. Door to airport or airport to door - cheaper than cabs. Good response time
  • ToandFromtheAirport.com - a website with transporation links and phone numbers for most US airports. Very comprehensive - somewhat busy in appearance.
