SuperShuttle is a convenient, inexpensive way to travel to the airport via a shared ride van service. SuperShuttle vans are often less expensive than a taxi ride and provide easy access to Miami International Airport. Transportation is available 24 hours per day. There are also many different shuttles you can take: a shared-ride shuttle, a non-stop shuttle, a luxury black car, and a black SUV. The shared-ride shuttle is the most affordable option, but the black car may be beneficial for business travelers.

Rates

SuperShuttle charges a per passenger rate based upon the distance between the airport and your destination. Depending upon your destination, rates for the first passenger vary between $14 and $30. Additional passengers are around $10 each. Rates may vary depending on your final destination. SuperShuttle also often offers discount rates and codes, so your trip will cost even less.

Reservations

Reservations are required for trips to the airport. You may make a reservation by calling (305) 871-2000. SuperShuttle also accepts reservations on their website. It's best to make reservations as far in advance as possible. Some holidays and busy travel weekends can book up quickly.

At the Airport

No reservation is necessary for trips leaving the airport. Simply approach a blue-shirted SuperShuttle representative in the ground transportation area of the airport and they will arrange a van for you.

Because of the number of SuperShuttles, you'll never have to wait too long for your ride.

Waiting for a Pickup?

If you're nervous that you may miss your flight, because your SuperShuttle van is running late? SuperShuttle has added a new feature to their site that allows you to track your van in real-time on a Google map so you can see it approaching your pick-up point.

You can also download the app for easier access.

Pros and Cons

While you'll save as much as 50 percent over the cost of a taxi, remember that SuperShuttle is a shared-ride service. Your trip will take longer than a taxi, and it could be significantly longer depending upon how many other people are in your van and your position on the drop-off/pick-up list. However, there are some surprising perks. For example, when you ride with SuperShuttle, you'll earn airline points. All you have to do is sign up for a free SuperShuttle account and link it to your Airline Rewards program.

SuperShuttle Locations

SuperShuttle serves major airports all over the United States as well as select international airports across Mexico and Europe. In south Florida, you can take SuperShuttle to/from Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. It also has direct access to many of the main hotels and resorts in both cities.
