     Cricket Communications, Inc. Provides Shuttles at Three SD Locations
     WHAT:     Weary holiday shoppers will have a great new way to get to and
               from their cars and transport gift-packed bags this season -- by
               taking advantage of the first ever "Shopping Shuttles" at three
               Westfield centers in San Diego.  The shuttles, sponsored by
               Cricket, are festive, four-passenger golf carts designed to
               speed shoppers to their cars, ease pedestrian traffic in parking
               lots and help sore feet throughout the season.
               Cricket Holiday Shopping Shuttles will be at Westfield's Mission
               Valley, Parkway and Plaza Bonita shopping centers.  Friendly
               Shopping Shuttle staff will offer bag-laden shoppers
               door-to-door transportation from the mall's exit directly to
               their car.  Trips are free -- courtesy of Cricket, San Diego's
               newest wireless service provider.
