SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio International Airport will provide a new curbside shuttle service to the downtown area, the city's Aviation Department said.
Star Shuttle, which was selected by the city through a competitive bidding process, partnered with Texas Self-determination Transportation to operate as SuperShuttle.
“We are thrilled to have SuperShuttle service at San Antonio International Airport," SuperShuttle International President David Bird said. "San Antonio is the seventh largest city in the United States and it is important to SuperShuttle to be."
SuperShuttle operates a fleet of sedans, sports utility vehicles, vans and luxury limousines, and also offers passengers a variety of existing transportation options, including taxis, rideshares, hotel shuttles and public transportation.
City officials said the average cost for a ride from the airport to downtown is $15 one way and $28 round trip.
“With more than 8.5 million passengers in the airport a year, this service is definitely an added value to the customer experience,” senior customer experience analyst Clay White said. “Our airport is just 10 miles from the heart of Alamo City, and now passengers are just minutes away with SuperShuttle – an outstanding customer service feature available at SAT.”
SuperShuttle operates 24 hours and the counter at SAT will be open from 8 a.m. to midnight.
