Going to/from SFO airport is often a pain, expensive or both. Since there are many services that provide rides to/from SFO airport, it is not easy for the average person to make sense of the different services and discern what exactly each service provides. For this reason, Tickengo created a chart that compares major on-road services in the San Francisco Bay Area that provide rides to SFO. We decided to take criteria that are most important for people who need a ride to SFO airport.
We used the following criteria:
People who need to go to the airport want to get their ride at a specific time and place. There is no room or desire for a random solution when they need to be on time for their flights.
One of the foremost concerns people have about airport transportation services is the cost. They want to know exactly how much it will cost to get to the airport. Some services offer flat rates that are clear while others do not.
This criterion is important because it affects the duration of a ride to the airport. If there are many stops the ride could be much longer and the convenience factor for the passenger goes down significantly.
Private rides are much more comfortable for travelers who need to take phone calls or who just want a nice relaxing moment before or after a long flight.
There is nothing better than being greeted by a friendly smile at the airport when you arrive after a long flight. Collaborative consumption, which includes collaborative transportation, is a huge movement that brings new opportunities for people to interact with other real AND friendly people.
