Share-Ride & Shuttle Services - "PSC"

On-call, Door-To-Door, Shuttle Service shuttle van: Airport Shuttles are demand-responsive common carriers of passengers: i.e., they are required to serve the general public. They are classified as Passenger Stage Corporations - certified to operate under a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (PSC-certificate). The California based shuttle companies on this website are certified and regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC), to transport unrelated parties between such places as airports, et al, and  cities /communities: share-ride in the same vehicle but pay your own fare. The most ccommon equipment used is the mini-van. They are driven by professional drivers, and their fares are usually less than one may expect to pay for a limousine or taxicab.  The limitations of their services, conditions under which they are required to provide service and the specific-flat-rate fares they must charge are all stated in their authorized tariffs: you may ask to view the tariff for accuracy in fares. One distinctive feature about shuttles is that they may display a destination sign on the front of the vehicle: a marquee of their general direction or destination on the roof: see also single-stop shuttle

Scheduled "PSC" Bus Services scheduled bus: These are licensed to operate on a specific timetable or schedule, using luxurious buses, to transport passengers on a regular route. Like the on-call, door-to-door, shuttles they provide share-ride services, charge tariff based fixed fares, but operate only on a regular route transporting you and other business professionals, tourists, etc.,  Use them if your trip to the airport begins at or is close to their scheduled stops: they do not serve individual homes. They are probably the least expense, comfortable, means to get to and from the airport.

City-To-City "PSC" Express Shuttle county-to-county: This is a relatively new service alternative to both the on-call, door-to-door and regularly scheduled services described above. They offer on-call service with limited stops in pre-approved cities specified in their tariffs....

 
Rent-A-Car Services These serve parties who wish to drive themselves. People who use rent-a-cars are usually familiar with the area or people who just like to drive themselves. Whatever your reason, there is a large selection of Rent-A-Car services in the various Metro Areas represented on this website to serve you. They are usually franchises or individuals or local companies licensed to do business by municipal governmental entities. So click and shop.
