    Now that it's been open a few weeks, has anyone found reliable transportation from the new airport to 30A?

    Taxi's, shuttles? Anyone actually tried some form of transport and found it to be reliable? Other ideas?

    A close-in airport is great. Getting out of the airport and onto the beach, even better!

    Your best bet is to rent a vehicle at the airport for the duration of your vacation. The cost of a ride just one way to 30a is more then a couple of days of car rental. Hardly cost effective. :wave:

    I am very interested in additional transportation options from the airport to 30-A. My daughter-in-law with our 5-yr. old granddaughter is coming in next week. We store a vehicle in BMB & need one way transportation. I'll call Crown Limo service & post details in a few days & would like more options.

    Just to clarify

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll call the limo service and see what their rates are.

    To clarify our situation a bit - like the other poster and many others, I'm sure - we keep a car on 30A and are really just looking for one way taxi service. I'd rather not have to spend precious Sowal time running the rental car back and forth.

    Are there cabs that you can just hail from the airport, or do you have to make advance arrangements?

    Seems so odd to have an airport without any convenient way to get out of it.

    Thanks for any additional suggestions or insight.

    SBW,

    I just checked Crown Limo and they quoted me $2.50 per mile with an approx. # @ $85.00 to BMB. This seems excessive!!:yikes: I'll check more sources in the next few days & post competitive rates.

    Yeah, the transport is ridiculously expensive from the airports here... but then again- we aren't right next to them- and those transport people have to go back to where they came from.

    We asked them how much it was and then called friends and begged for a ride. :D

    Interesting dilemma for one way ECP airport transportation to 30-A.:angry:
    It's 33 miles from the new ECP airport to my place in BMB. Here's what I found.

    Airport Transportation (850) 685-3586 @ $70.00

    Crown Limo (850) 258-3665 quoted $81.00 with a 10% discount @ $71.00

    Checker Cab (850) 654-9744 quoted $2.50 per mile based on 33 miles @ $82.50

    In my opinion these rates seem excessive. I would feel more comfortable paying $1.50 per mile, but :bang: Maybe I should call up a 30-A realtor and tell them I am buying a million dollar property and need a ride.:funn:

    Why don't you try Paradise Taxi and give a local Sowaller some business?

    Warning, Warning, Crown Limo are not trustworthy.

    My daughter-in-law & our granddaughter just arrived at ECP and used Crown Limo. They got in the Limo and then quoted $90.00 for the 33-mile trip to BMB. I hate this bait & switch pricing.:angry:

    Shame on Crown Limo!!! I will never use Crown Limo again!!!

    Most of these thread posts are older.....so checking to see if anyone has any recent recommendations for a car service from PCB Airport (ECB)? Thanks as always!

    Has anyone used a shuttle recently from ECB to 30A and know the approximate cost?

    Is there anyone that runs a concierge service for second home owners that maintain a car locally?

    I know I'm not the only one that struggles with this. It would be nice to have someone drop my car off at either the Destin or PCB airport the day of my arrival. In a perfect world it would be detailed, gassed up and ready to go with the keys left at the FBO.

    I just recently had a friend fly into Panama from ATL. I could not pick her up, so my ONLY option was a shuttle. $55.00 (not including tip) to Alys Beach!! Atlantis was the cheapest, the others were $10+ more!! Living here is great, but things like cheap transportation are the price we pay!!!
