Best Shuttle or Car Service From Tampa Airport

I usually visit family here during the winter but I find that there is very little choice flying into the Sarasota Airport. If I chose SRQ then I would have to take Delta, wait two or three hours in Atlanta and then get on a connecting flight. I find the non-stop on Southwest Airlines from Las Vegas to Tampa more seamless even though it doesn’t quite get me to Sarasota.

So for this reason I need some sort of shuttle or car service to drive me the one hour from the Tampa Airport to Sarasota. Does anyone know of some good companies that often do ground transportation like this?

Yes I have used the company recommended above and found them very reliable.

They offer both shuttle and town car.

Super Shuttle is the way to go - you COULD take Uber or Lyft, but you'd be paying more for that service due to the distance between Tampa/Sarasota.

You can reserve Super Shuttle on line and it will be waiting for you (or you'll have a short wait) upon your arrival in Tampa.

I've used Uber the last few times and it has worked out great! Approx. $70 for the ride. I haven't had a bad trip with them yet!

From what I'm seeing, they're a worldwide service (they advertise their services in Dubai - of all places!).

They have an active Facebook presence, but not a lot of reviews. Some on Yelp - which are positive.

Hopefully, others will respond.

I ended up booking ExecuCar on the Super Shuttle website with meet and greet service. Even though I reserved a premium sedan, they upgraded me to a premium SUV.

The return to the airport was just as good of an experience. I used the Super Shuttle app to track my vehicle before it picked me up and it was ten minutes early.

Uber and Lyft are less expensive, but ExecuCar has stronger background checks on drivers and requires frequent maintenance checks on vehicles.

I've used Jimmy Rides (jimmyrides.com or (941) 363-1741 and have been happy but it's about $90 plus tip each way. Another cheaper option is a one-way car rental with Enterprise.

When you drop the car off at Enterprise once you get to Siesta Key, they'll drive you back to where you're staying.
