History

Before there was Uber and Lyft, Prime Time Shuttle pioneered the ride-share transportation service in the greater Los Angeles area starting back in 1984. Prime Time Shuttle pioneered the shared-ride airport ground transportation concept with the opening of its Los Angeles, California operation. Since 1984 Prime Shuttle has serviced more than 21 million passengers. PRIME TIME SHUTTLE is licensed by the California Public Utilities Commission: PSC 11415, TCP 11415 P. First Class Transportation operates under the authority of the California Public Utilities Commission: PSC 16462

"As a pioneer and leader in the airport transportation niche, we have developed critical expertise in serving passengers and providing value in multiple passenger share-ride."

Formula to Success

PRIME TIME SHUTTLE as a leader in the newly emerging ride-share industry, PRIME TIME SHUTTLE set the standard, as far as innovation and quality as more and more people discovered this new method to get to and from the airport. In those early years of rideshare, most ride-share shuttle companies focused their attention on the transfer of out-of-town visitors to their hotels, usually in the downtown area. They avoided picking up passengers from their homes because it was more a complicated form of the business. It was a lot harder to assure that every person would get to their flight on time when they were not being picked up on the "reliable hotel route."

On Time Service

Today, in addition to continuing to set the highest quality standards, PRIME TIME SHUTTLE remains the only shuttle service in Southern California to offer an On Time Guarantee. We’re on time or your ride is free!

Safe and Efficient Route

There is rideshare and then there is good ride-share. It’s easy to say that you provide rideshare service, but without the state-of-the-art rideshare software, which Prime Time has developed over the years, rideshare can become a nightmare experience.

Professional Drivers

All of PRIME TIME SHUTTLE’S drivers are caring professionals that understand that your comfort and safety is their number one priority.
