Best by Passenger Type

While anyone can enjoy ground travel, some tend to ride the rails or hit the road more often than most. To gain their invaluable perspective, we took a closer look at the average ratings from passengers who identified their journeys as a daily commute, an occasional business trip, or the adventure of a college student. Below, check out the top picks from these savvy travelers.

Commuters' Favorite


Commuters can be a tough crowd to please — after all, they make the same journey back and forth, day after day. That’s why, consistency is key, and Quick Shuttle knows how to impress. Passengers rated them highly for punctuality and friendliness trip after trip.
