In 1983, SuperShuttle pioneered the shared-ride airport ground transportation concept with the opening of its Los Angeles, California operation. Today, SuperShuttle is the premier shared-ride airport transportation service in the United States, providing door-to-door service for over 8 million passengers per year. Currently, SuperShuttle provides service to and from more than 40 airports and over 50 cities and has approximately 1,200 distinctive blue and yellow vans on the road.
SuperShuttle's 24-hour call centers process thousands of customer reservations per day by phone and reservations can also be made online. Our state of the art reservation system and proprietary automated dispatch system group passengers by geographic area or along major routes. Customers enjoy the cost savings of a shared-ride service along with the assurance that they will reach their destinations reasonably quickly.
In addition, SuperShuttle's 24-hour call centers process thousands of customer reservations per day by phone. We also have partnerships with many leading online travel providers, including Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, Southwest, JetBlue and others, enabling passengers to make their SuperShuttle reservation at the same time they are completing the rest of their travel plans. And we have relationships with leading tour wholesalers who package our services into travel arrangements they make for their customers.
At SuperShuttle, we strive to maintain our founding principles of quality, superb passenger service, responsiveness, reliability and passenger safety. Our affordable service and friendly staff remove the hassle of expensive airport parking for our millions of loyal customers across the country. As we add new cities and grow each year, we are committed to improving the availability and quality of shared-ride transportation in the US and abroad.
