Our shuttles are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. For departing flights, we schedule pick-ups 3-4 hours prior to your departure time for domestic flights and 4-5 hours prior to your departure time for international flights. For arriving flights, passengers scheduled to arrive within the same 60 minutes are grouped together and will ride on the same shuttle, unless one or more passengers are ready to leave CLT earlier or later than expected, in which case adjustments may be made. We do not accept arriving flights past 11:00 p.m.

Tipping is not required but is customary. Most passengers choose to tip their driver. We can even put the tip on your credit card if you prefer.

We are unable to transport pets and apologize for any inconvenience. We do however allow the transportation of service animals.

Some passengers make reservations months in advance. Since we are first-come, first-served, it is important that you make a reservation as far in advance as possible. We can only guarantee you a seat on the shuttle once you have purchased your seat.

No, however, we need to know at the time of the reservation how much luggage you will have, as well as any oversized items, such as golf clubs.

We understand that travel plans change. Cancellations made more than 24 hours in advance are no problem, and a full refund will be given. Please note that emails and voicemails are not considered cancellations. If your flight is canceled or re-routed to another airport, you will also receive a full refund. All other travel circumstances, including flight delays, are handled on a case-by-case basis. Please understand that just as certain travel delays are not your fault, they are not our fault either. All reasonable efforts will be made to facilitate your travel plans as quickly and safely as possible.

Columbia Charlotte Shuttle requires payment in full at the time of booking. We want to make this process as simple as possible, so we offer online and over-the-phone payment options. We accept all major credit cards.

We service the Columbia metropolitan area and typically pick up and drop off right at your door. However, if you are outside our service area we have convenient pick up points where we can meet you. Please call or email to discuss.

I have been using the shuttle for a few years now and it suits my needs perfectly. The price is right and the vans are clean. It is especially useful to me when I have visitors that I need to have picked up or dropped off.

This is definitely the way to get to and from the Charlotte airport from Columbia. So stress-free!

My sister has taken it many times to and from my house. Also, I used them for my Seattle relatives for a late-night run. Since we booked in advance and planned early, they accommodated us. Thank you for that!!!

Now I'm needing them again. I'm so thankful they started this service. Just make sure you plan in advance and they will go out of their way to accommodate!

I'll be calling them again soon. I'm planning another trip for a friend! Also, I recommend them to anybody I know. Great way to travel.

My daughter traveled from USC to Charlotte Airport the day before Thanksgiving and when she got to the airport noticed her Ray Bans and room key were not in her backpack-last seen on the van.The helpful staff contacted the driver who found the glasses, key and case- they worked hard to arrange to get them back to her on Sunday. Honest, safe, reliable -and they care about people's belongings. So thankful!

Joyce H.

I have used Columbia Charlotte Shuttle several times. The driver is communicative and calls the day before to confirm pickup and time. It is a very easy way to get to the Charlotte airport and is low-stress.

Awesome, totally worth it! I've already recommended them. From customer service to the drivers, they make your travel experience a relaxing one. Not only is the reservation process easy, but they help you with flight changes too. They will contact you a couple of days before your departure time and arrival, to reconfirm.Let them handle the stress of driving to the airport. Best deal. You're picked up from your chosen address, driven to the airport, and dropped off in departures. On your arrival, they'll meet you in Charlotte, help you with your luggage and drop you off at your doorstep.

"I took Columbia Charlotte Shuttle three times last semester and plan to use the service again for our next break. Everything went as scheduled and it was a lot cheaper than flying out of Columbia."

USC Student

My drop-off to CLT fell through, but I vaguely remembered seeing a review for a shuttle service on Yelp once. I was so happy it came right up when I searched! You have to call for a reservation, and once I hung up, I had secured my ride to the airport. This particular shuttle was a little different. Normally you have a shuttle van, this time it was a huge coach that was taking students from USC to the airport. I got to the meeting point and the bus was right on time. It wasn't crowded at all and everyone had their pick of seats. It was a two-two configuration so no worries about a middle seat. I ended up having the first two seats all to myself. The driver was friendly, efficient, and most importantly safe. I had no trouble catching my flight, and will use this service again! They were friendly and reliable.
