Thought you might be interested in posting this information to the staff listserv. *Subject: **Important:AAA Shuttle CHANGE*
Groome Transportation has bought out the AAA Shuttle company. Any "pre-paid" tickets will be honored by Groome Transportation. PLEASE NOTE: Drivers DO NOT take credit cards, and MUST be paid with CASH. Or, you can pre-pay with credit card when you MAKE your reservations by the phone. Below is their link/schedule that is slightly different from AAA Shuttle's. http://www.groometransportation.com/athens.html
Groome Transportation has taken over AAA Airport Express' Athens Route effective tomorrow, Fri. Apr. 22, 2011. I called Groome and they verified that they will pick up and drop off at the GA Center, Hotel Indigo, Hilton Garden Inn downtown, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Springhill Suites and Comfort Inn. They do not take credit cards at the time of service, if you want to pay with a credit card you will have to call their office 706-410-2363. They will honor all current reservations you have with AAA. $34/one way, $63/round trip
Their pick up location at Hartsfield/Jackson:
Directions to Atlanta Pick-Up Area: After claiming your baggage at Terminal North or Terminal South baggage claim, follow the signs toward Ground Transportation / MARTA. Exit the terminal through Door W1 or Door W2 and follow the covered walkway across the taxi pick-up drive to the non-metro/shared ride area on the Green Row. Groome Transportation's pick-up is located on the Green Row in the non-metro/shared ride pick-up area. Just follow the signs to the Green Row. It is the first row you come to after crossing the drive. We will pull into one of the spaces numbered 12 thru 15. Groome shuttles to various locations share these spaces, so be sure to get on the correct van.
Haven't used AAA for years.
AAA's a little weird, in my opinion, in that they practically demand a tip
I used AAA March 12th and 19th when they were running the same deal Groome
still offers. I have used AAA for years and have been pretty happy with
them but next time I'll try Groome if their prices are still better than AAA.
Had a great experience with Groome.
Very convenient. Courteous, safe drivers (Groome).
My Mom used the Groome service a few weeks ago and was very pleased with it.
It was also nice and cheap.
My staff have been using Groome and like it very much.
They didn't advertise that they would p/u at GA Center but they will for no
