Why Choose a Private Shuttle Over a Shared Shuttle Ride

When it comes to getting to the airport, you have a few different options. One option is to take a shared shuttle ride.  Multiple stops in a packed van with 14 other people you don’t know.  Riding shoulder to shoulder for the next 2 hours with people who may or may not be sick.  If however you are looking for a private MSP Shuttle Service, check us out.  Citywide allows you to sit back, recline and socialy distance in your own private car.  Getting you to and from the MSP airport in quiet comfort and on your schedule not ours.

Opting for a private shuttle ride provides greater flexibility compared to a shared shuttle ride. In a shared shuttle service, you’re confined to a fixed schedule dictated by the shuttle company, requiring you to adhere to predetermined pickup and drop-off times. This can be inconvenient if you’re running behind schedule or have a tight itinerary. However, with Citywide’s Private MSP Shuttle, you gain more autonomy over the schedule. You can select pickup and drop-off times that align perfectly with your preferences and commitments. This flexibility helps alleviate stress and enhances the overall enjoyment of your travel experience.


Opting for a private shuttle ride ensures a more comfortable and exclusive experience. In a shared shuttle ride, you’re paired with strangers, sharing the shuttle with other passengers. This can detract from the comfort and potentially add stress, particularly if you’re traveling with numerous belongings or have specific needs like pets or young children. Conversely, a private MSP shuttle ride is exclusively reserved for you or your group. This guarantees a more intimate and comfortable journey, free from the need to share the shuttle with others or make multiple stops for pickups and drop-offs along the way.


A private shuttle ride can be more cost-effective than you might think. While it’s true that private shuttle rides are typically more expensive than shared shuttle rides, they can be a better value. For example, if you’re traveling with a group, the cost of a private shuttle ride can be split among everyone in the group, making it more affordable per person. Additionally, if you’re traveling with a lot of luggage or have special requirements, a private shuttle ride can save you time and money by eliminating the need for additional transportation or luggage handling services.  Remember, pets are always welcome.


While a shared shuttle ride can be an affordable way to get to the airport, a private shuttle ride offers more Flexibility, Comfort, Value and peace of mind. By choosing a private MSP shuttle ride, you can enjoy a more personalized and stress-free travel experience that’s tailored to your needs and preferences.
