AKRON-CANTON AIRPORT ANNOUNCES NEW GROUND
Green, OH: New ground transportation providers are now serving passengers at Akron-Canton Airport (CAK). Shuttle One Services (SOS) a long time tenant and Thomas Limousine Services of Akron were recently selected as the in-terminal providers of high-end limousine services. Both companies offer sedan, van, standard limousine, and mini-bus options. Thomas Limousine also offers stretch limousine and SUV services from CAK.Both providers have service counters in the baggage claim area.
Rental car options were also recently expanded from four to eight vendors. Now passengers can select Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National and /or Thrifty. Because all rental car companies are on-site, a trip in a van to a remote rental car facility is never required.
In addition to limousine and rental car services, Airport Taxi Express and Yellow Cab offer curbside taxi services to arriving passengers. The taxi service started last spring.Akron Metro Regional Transit Authority and Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) offer bus service to and from the airport as well. All of these ground transportation options can be found in our baggage claim area or just outside on the curb.
"Excellent ground transportation options are critical to our arriving passengers and local corporations," said airport director Fred Krum. "We feel very confident that SOS, Thomas, taxi, rental car and bus service to our airport meets the varied needs of our passengers. Grouping these services in the baggage claim area reduces stress and helps our arriving passengers get to their destination as quickly as possible. Exceptional ground transportation options within steps of baggage carousels, helps make CAK a better way to go®."
