Prime Time: Shared Ride, Economy Plus, Business, First Class, and/or Private Van calculates your flat rate upfront, based on the estimated distance and number of passengers and luggages.
The flat fare always includes the base fare, airport fee, toll fee and any other fee(s) that may apply. Once the ride is booked, the calculated flat rate will never change.
There is no surge pricing or any hidden fees.
Our platform uses the Google Maps API to calculate the route that will determine the price. The optimal route taken for the ride will be suggested by the driver.
Drivers will try their best to accommodate you. To ensure a smooth service for both riders and drivers, here are the rules you need to follow:
Airport Pick-up: Drivers will wait for 30 minutes past your pick-up time. After 30minutes, we cannot guarantee your ride.
Home Pick-up: Drivers will wait for 15 minutes past your pick-up time. After 15 minutes, without communication, the driver will leave.
For more information, read our cancellation and no-show policies.
We take driver no shows very seriously and will do everything possible to try and make the situation right.

Prime Time Shuttle realizes our drivers are human beings. Sometimes they make mistakes, have emergencies or run into unpredictable situations.
For first time users, we will be giving you an activation code to the number you’ve provided for us to ensure the authenticity of your number. This is also important for us or drivers to get in touch with you when picking you up.
As an international traveler coming to the US, you might not have access to a cell phone or wifi network upon landing. If you are stuck in customs, please use our in-app chat to to let your driver know. Your driver's time is as valuable as yours. We only ask you to treat them as fairly as you would treat a family member or friend.

Children two (2) years of age and younger travel free with a paying adult.

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.
Pets must be transported in a pet carrier. If the pet carrier is small enough to be carried on the passengers lap it will count as a carry-on and may be taken on a shared van. Larger pets in pet carriers will require an exclusive van.
