Shuttle service between the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) and the Wyndham Jacksonville Riverwalk hotel

In an effort to be green as well as make shuttle transport between airport and hotel inexpensive for conference attendees, we've set up a shuttle service with Checkered Cab that will maximize the number of people per shuttle and reduce the number of shuttles needed. A normal taxi ride between the airport and hotel would be $35-40 one way. However, our current one-way rate through Checkered Cab will be:

2 passengers: $33 total for both
Each passenger after 2 will be an additional $8

So if there are:
1 passenger, the total fare will = $33
2 passengers, the total fare will = $33
3 passengers = $41
4 passengers = $49
5 passengers = $57
6 passengers = $65
7 passengers = $73
8 passengers = $81
No more than 8 passengers per shuttle
Tips certainly accepted

There are 2 ways you can arrange this service:

  1. You can schedule your shuttle yourself by calling (904) 345-3333 and mentioning the code words "Zoo Conference" to get the discount. If there are any troubles, Mary, the sales manager can help you as she sets up the service.
  2. OR
  3. You can email Tirzah Nichols at TirzahMarie15@gmail.com by June 15th to have her set up the shuttle service and try to group people together depending on time of arrival. Include the following in your email:

    Your name
    Your institution
    Your airline and flight number for arrival into JAX
    Your preferred pick-up date and time from the airport to go to the hotel
    Your airline and flight number for departure from JAX
    Your preferred departure date and time from the hotel to the airport
    A contact phone number

Tirzah will confirm your shuttle request when received. Within the week before the conference, Tirzah will get back to you with instructions of where and when to connect with your shuttle and how many are confirmed per shuttle, maximizing the number of people, as well as minimizing your cost. Using this method, you may be subject to a brief wait upon arrival at Jacksonville Airport, or be required to leave a little earlier for your departure to the Jacksonville Airport to meet up with your scheduled shuttle appointments. Plan on bringing cash as the total fare will be split amongst everyone in the shuttle.
