Traveling with Kids
PRIME TIME Shuttle welcomes the opportunity to serve our "junior" passengers. Children two (2) years of age and younger travel free with a paying adult. If making an online reservation, please indicate the number of children traveling so that we can set a seat aside, as California state law does not allow children to ride in the lap of an adult.
Please be aware that we do not supply child safety seats. If your child is under the minimum age/height standards set by the state of California (less than 8 years of age or is less than 4 feet 9 inches in height), we strongly recommend that you supply an approved child safety seat for your child. Although it is not mandatory that a child safety seat is supplied, it is the responsibility of the parent or guardian traveling with the child to make sure that the child is transported safely.
New California Child Passenger Restraint Requirements
Effective January 1, 2012
(California Vehicle Code SB 929, Evans)
California’s Child Passenger Safety Seat law requires children to ride in either a car seat or booster seat until the age of eight, or until they reach a height of 4 feet 9 inches. This law also requires children who do not meet the age or height requirement to ride in the rear seat of a vehicle unless the vehicle has no back seats, the restraint system cannot be properly installed or the rear seats are already occupied by children under age eight. However, the law still maintains that a child may not ride in the front seat of a vehicle with an active passenger airbag if they are under one year of age, less than 20 pounds, or riding in a rear-facing child safety seat.
All children who are riding free (children under 2) are permitted to bring 1 carry-on piece of luggage. If additional bags are needed please indicate the number of additional bags when making your reservation.
Additional children's items such as strollers or other non-carry-on type items with dimensions different from standard luggage, may count as 2 bags or require an exclusive shuttle. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com to confirm.
