I stopped using airport transportation services after I had to wait too long or was forgotten altogether too many times. For those reasons, I usually drive myself to the airport. For my latest trip, though, I was going to be away for several weeks, so calling someone to drive me to the airport seemed more cost-effective than paying for parking for so many days.
I called the Cleveland Hopkins airport shuttle service. It was easy to make my reservation. The friendly person who answered the phone took all the information quickly and promised that the shuttle would arrive in plenty of time to get me to the airport. You can also book online if that is easier for you. I chose the door-to-door, round-trip service. I am happy to report that they did not live up my pessimistic expectations. Their service is punctual and reliable. I didn’t even have time to worry about whether the shuttle would arrive with enough time to catch my flight. The driver showed up 5 minutes early.
The shuttle was clean, comfortable, and smoke-free – a lot nicer than travelling in a run-down, beat-up taxi. The driver treated me with courtesy and stowed my bags for me, then took me straight to the departure area for my airline so that I could easily check in at the curb. It was easy to pay because they take all kinds of credit cards, and the price is reasonable compared to other transportation services.
I arranged for round-trip transportation. The driver let me know where the shuttle would be when I returned with very exact directions. I found him waiting for me, so I did not have to stand around on the arrivals area sidewalk with my luggage. It was raining, so having the shuttle right there was a real plus. The driver greeted me and asked me if this was my first time travelling to Cleveland. I told him that I live here. He said he has been here for more than 20 years himself and always asks his customers if they are new to town so that he can recommend good sights for them to see or nice restaurants.
Because of the great service and price that I got – a lot less than parking my car – I think I might never drive to the airport again. I know that I will be calling these folks again for my future trips, and I recommend them to everyone who wants a safe and on-time way to get to the airport.
