NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- SuperShuttle announced today it will be closing its operations in Nashville, Tenn. including its ExecuCar division. Its last day of service will be October 10, 2010.
"We are really sorry to close our operations in Nashville and we are particularly sad to discontinue our service to and from Ft. Campbell, KY where we have been running regular airport shuttles for our soldiers with orders, as well as Operation Safe Ride for soldiers traveling to downtown Nashville for a night on the town," said senior regional vice president for SuperShuttle, Dave Bird.
SuperShuttle began service in Nashville in January of 2008 upon acquisition of Nashville ShuttleMAX, LLC, which provided hotel airport transfers. "Nashville was the first mid-size market we entered where other companies offered significant competing services. While we developed a good following in Nashville, the competition for the customer who simply comes to the curb for a shuttle with no brand loyalty did not allow us to achieve the necessary passenger traffic for a profitable business. Due to the nature of the shared ride business and the need to create multiple passengers in a single vehicle, we will continue to limit our operations at mid size airports where we are the preferred contractor," Bird went on to say.
SuperShuttle is contacting all passengers with reservations in the Nashville market. For more information please to www.supershuttle.com and or call 1-800-BLUEVAN.
