Hi Everyone,

I wanted to start a thread for people who need rides from the airport to hook up with people who might be able to offer them.

If you go to the web site of the airport you're flying into, check out their ground transportation links. There are several shuttle bus services that will take you to the house in Newport Beach.

The best priced one that I found looking quickly is:

Average per way price from John Wayne is $13. From LAX or Long Beach, it jumps to about $40 each way.

Sorry I should clarify, I'm looking for a ride, not offering a ride :-)

I would be grateful if anyone is able to help out. Otherwise I'll take the shuttle.

Hey fella,

Wait for me. I get in at 2:40pm. We'll shuttle down together and it'll be like the bus tour our rugby team was meant to have with the left over subs and never did. ;-)

Look forward to seeing you.

Hello Tim and Andrew,

I get in at 12:15 pm on Friday.  Should I wait for you guys?  I've done sword and shield fighting, hopefully I'll fit in, although I don't know about the other parts.  ;)

Master Bates

Excellent. I'll wait for you and we'll get the shuttle, unless someone else pops up with a better idea ...

Julia, you are very welcome to come with us if you would like to, although its a bit of a wait for you ...? And don't worry, you won't need your weapons. Bates is all talk - he'll be sound asleep by 11.00pm.

PS. Bates: I've sanctioned your post, not because of its genius or anything, but just to get you over the 10 point hurdle.  Don't say I never do anything for you.

Well, you could just meet me where I come off the plane. I sent you a PM with the details.

Just as an FYI, you three might be better off taking a cab. I think the shuttle is $40/person, it's worth asking if a cab from LAX to Newport Beach is less than $120 and can take all three of you.

Also, I think the shuttle bus might want 24 hrs advance notice, but I'm not sure. You might want to check it out if you go that route.

Or you might also want to see if it's worth someone's time who will be there early to go back for the three of you, and offer them the $100 instead... Just some thoughts, I won't get there until Saturday so won't be much help!

See you all there!

-Elizabeth
