Airport shuttle buses are a great money saver, and they’re usually the cheapest way to reach your destination. Most major cities have them in store, a here are a few things worth keeping in mind when using them because your ride will go much smoother if you come prepared and know what to expect.

Check the Schedule

Don’t wait until the last minute to learn if the airport at your destination offers an airport shuttle. Do your research beforehand because most buses have a fixed schedule and run from a specific pick-up point. It’s sometimes even a good idea to buy a ticket online because it’s cheaper, but it’s best to do it at the airport once you know which bus you’re boarding.

Payment Method

It’s also good to know what to expect when it comes to paying for tickets. Try to find out if there are ticket machines or if you can buy the ticket from the driver, and make sure that you can pay with a card if you don’t have enough cash on you.

Early Bird

Don’t wait until the last minute to reach the airport bus station. Airport shuttles can be pretty crowded so it’s a good idea to get there as early as possible to secure a seat and make sure there’s enough room for your luggage—especially since it won’t be a short ride.
