Shuttle Express: 30 Years of Safe, Caring Transportation in Seattle

Shuttle Express is celebrating! The local transportation service has been behind the wheel for three decades, driving busy people to Sea-Tac and back and anywhere in Puget Sound, safely, on time, and with a smile.

Since the day Shuttle Express opened for business in the fall of 1987, the family-run transportation company has provided the best in personal transportation by putting their guests first, hand-picking and training friendly drivers and chauffeurs, and expanding their services and software to meet their guests’ needs

Founder and owner Jim Sherrell created Shuttle Express in 1987 with a vision — to treat travelers with the highest level of guest service, safety, and friendliness. Jim owned San Juan Airlines at the time, which had the reputation as the safest, most professional commuter airline in the country, and he believed he could transfer that same culture to his start-up transportation company. With that vision, he founded Shuttle Express on safety, integrity, respect, and care, and those same core values still drive the company today.

“Our mission was to offer a safe, caring, and affordable alternative to begging a ride or driving and parking at Sea-Tac Airport,” Jim said.

Their professionally-trained, friendly chauffeurs are the cornerstone of their business, delivering outstanding service with every trip. When you ride with Shuttle Express, you can trust who arrives to pick you up: each chauffeur is background checked, drug tested, and trained to offer safe, timely service

While best known for their iconic airport service, they’ve expanded and thrived since those early days by adding luxury town cars, SUVs, limos, and private chauffeured share ride, as well as an extensive coach bus service for groups large and small.

And, their new app is the latest offering to make the booking experience fast and easy!

So, if you need a ride to the airport, your business needs a reliable, professional car service, or you’re looking for group transportation, remember that Shuttle Express is Puget Sound’s transportation expert – they’ll drive you where you need to go, safely and on time.
