“We have used this shuttle service for years. To the SF, SJ & Oakland airports. We are very pleased – they have picked up at 3am, 11pm or whenever & were never late and always on time. This last time we had Chris- very engaging, friendly and nice.. We give this operation 5 stars….”

“I have used Early Bird twice this year, and I can’t recommend them highly enough!

The first time was this past July, when I needed a very early morning ride from my home in the Santa Cruz Mountains to San Francisco to catch a flight to Ireland. I was a bit worried, as people often have trouble finding our house during the day, let alone at 2:00 a.m.! The driver was right on-time, however (a couple of minutes early, as a matter of fact), and it was so nice to be able to doze a bit on the way to the airport instead of fighting fatigue! The driver was very nice and professional, and it was worth every penny not to have to ask my poor husband to drive me to SFO well before the break of dawn on a work day!

I was so pleased with the service that we contracted with Early Bird to take all three of us to SFO for a trip at the end of September. This time we scheduled a pick up at the airport for after our trip as well. Same great service, and they were there waiting for us when our flight landed, even though the flight got in a bit early.

When you compare the price to the cost of long-term parking at the airport (or to the hassle of finding someone to drive you), and factor in the pleasure of not having to drive 60 miles when you’re sleep-deprived or jet-lagged, it really is a no-brainer. I figure this cost us about $50 more than long-term parking for the same period (almost three weeks), and was worth more than that for the comfort and peace of mind. I will definitely use this service again.”

“I have to apologize to Early Bird for being late in getting my review online. I had to cancel an appointment shortly before it was scheduled, and was told no problem, and had it rescheduled for a later date. The ride was to S.J. Airport. The driver was on time, and the ride over was enjoyable, and when I returned a driver was waiting for me, helped my with my luggage and the ride home was also enjoyable.”
– Shimsin U., Santa Cruz, CA

“Was picked up in Scotts Valley. Scheduled for 6:30 am but the driver was there about 5 minutes early, thank you. It was a Monday morniing, commute hour, had been raining and the trip was to San Jose Airport. The driver already knew that there was a rollover on Highway 17 and she took the back roads. She was a star and we arrived in the nick of time, safe. Everything was easy. We signed up online and then paid online. They made a call to confirm everything. We felt that we were being taken care of. Thanks for a great ob.”
– Chris M., Ben Lomond, CA

“Great first-time experience with a ride from home to SJC. I had to run a quick errand but got stuck in Ocean St traffic jam so was little late. Steve was very understanding and sweet. He was funny & interesting and a good safe driver. I will be calling on them in the future for sure!”
– Anita C., Santa Cruz, CA

“Early Bird Shuttle has outstanding services. Yesterday, my daughter’s luggage did not arrive with her and she had to wait two hours at the airport until the luggage finally arrived. As a mom I was worried that the car driver assigned to her had to leave, but he made sure to put her in contact with another driver – Jeff. It was a bit stressful day not only because of the hectic airport but also due to the storm. We the parents miles away felt a sense of assurance knowing that this company’s outstanding service will not leave my daughter stranded. This company has a group of professional drivers. I want to thank this company and specially Jeff for getting my daughter to school safe during a stormy night in Santa Cruz. If your kid attends UCSC and his/her safety is priority I will strongly advise you to use the Early Bird Shuttle Services.”

“Thank you! to Early Bird Airport Shuttle! Great service! When the driver was coming to pick us up to take us to SFO airport…of course highway 1 was “slow”… but the driver called us to update us …. but we made it just fine. On our return from Europe, the flight out of Copenhagen was delayed over 2 hrs….. but when we finally made it to SFO, The driver was there waiting for us. Great Service! Thank You!”
– S S., Watsonville, CA

“I’ve used this shuttle at least 4 times each time I go to SJC/SFO, and each time they are early/ontime and the drivers are suuuuuuper nice! Classic Santa Cruz hospitality.”
– Jacky L., Spruce Hill, Philadelphia, PA

“We had a great experience with them! They were always on time, had safe drivers, and even moved my pick up time around last minute when I needed them to. Great company.”
– Michele S., Glendale, AZ

“After using Early Bird for almost 10 years I feel comfortable saying they are the best shuttle service I’ve used. They are always on time, very professional, and unfailingly courteous. We have never had a problem. They communicate clearly with telephone reminders the day before pickup. The on-line reservation system is easy to use and they send an email confirmation promptly. They stay up to date with traffic delays and flight delays to ensure on-time pickup and arrival. Simply outstanding service.”
– Ralph E., Soquel, CA

“Great service! Arrived on time and got me to SJC without stress. This especially good for people like me who live in Santa Crus mountains and need to catch a 6 AM flight.”
– Dan F., Felton, CA

“I have used Early Bird Airport Shuttle for many years. I have used the shared ride but many times my flights are very early AM flights so then I use the door to door service which picks me up at home and drives right to the airport.”
– K G., Aptos, CA

“I have no complaints. The process of ordering a drive was easy and I received immediate confirmation after providing the needed information. The driver was a few minutes early and got me to the airport within the dedicated time frame. The car was spotless and the driver adjusted the temperature as needed which I appreciated. I would totally use the company again!”
– Vicky T., Santa Cruz, CA

“Always on time and accommodating! Their drivers are very professional and the cars are always nice and clean.”
– Anida B., Santa Cruz, CA

“Picked me up on time at 4:00 a.m. and arrive to San Jose airport with plenty of time to have a sit down breakfast! Driver was very courteous and friendly! Would use them again in a heartbeat!”
– Lillian L., Watsonville, CA

“Simply the best! I have used your services several times now and all have been excellent. I was in a situation that I needed emergency help just last month as I needed to get to my brother who was dying of cancer. I spoke with Christine at the service and she did say that they were booked around the time 6 AM that I needed to be in San Jose. She said Teresa, let me work on this and I will call you back. Well she called me back within 10 minutes! And I was Relieved thatI had a driver I even had one scheduled to pick me up when I was returning. Flight was 45 minutes late getting in, they did not hesitate to wait for me and I truly appreciate that. It was a stressful time for me but Kristen made sure things ran smoothly. I had no worries. Excellent, excellent company. I would highly recommend to anyone.”
– Teresa B., Indianapolis, IN

“Early Bird shuttle picked up my daughter from UC Santa Cruz for Christmas break and took her to San Jose airport. It was so convenient because they picked her up in front of the bookstore on campus. She arrived to the airport on time and was very pleased.
We also used them three weeks later for her return trip back to campus. When they went to pick her up at the airport, my daughter was at the wrong pick up spot but Early Bird made sure to find her and did not leave her behind. I was so grateful to them for their patience because this was my daughter’s first time traveling alone.
I highly recommend Early Bird shuttle and will be using them again.”
– Silvina C., Torrance, CA

“On time and professional. Used their services to pickup from San Jose airport and transport Hollister. Definitely would use again.”
– Jim S., Hollister, CA

“Excellent service, professional, and very reliable. Our family has used Early Bird since they started, after being disappointed with other local airport drivers. They are top notch.”
– C.S., Santa Cruz, CA

“I’m more than Satisfied with this transportation service!!! The ride to the airport was smooth and quick. I got to the airport early and the driver was friendly and respectful. I will use this service again!!! Thank you Early Bird for providing such an excellent service to our comunity.”
– Sparkle B., Santa Cruz, CA

“Our VERY early pickup was on time, professional and pleasant and the return service was the same. Since I had a somewhat long trip planned, the shuttle cost was just about equal with the cost to leave my car at the S.F. Airport or in a lot. This way I didn’t have to hassle with driving when I was tired & my car sat safely at my place. I received a confirmation phone call 1 day before my return trip, so I knew they’d be there to pick me up.”
– Aptos, CA

“You can count on them. They show up reliably on time, each and every time. Always courteous and helpful. Especially pays off on the return trip, when you are no doubt tired and frazzled after the long flight, and without that pre-trip excitement. What a godsend to have Early Bird waiting there ready to whisk you home. Using Early Bird also pays off when you are traveling with the whole family. They can bring a minivan with car seats, if need be, and it is a LOT less hassle than driving and parking yourself, juggling kids and baggage on those airport parking buses. Why not get dropped off right at curbside check-in? I used to travel a lot. Have used a lot of car services in my day. These folks are far and away the best.
– Grant G., Santa Cruz, CA

“We used Early Bird to get to the airport for our trip to Hawaii. We hadn’t been on vacation for years and it really made a difference not having to worry about getting to the airport on time and back when we got home. This is a great service and reasonably priced.”
– Zak F., Santa Cruz, CA

“Awesome. Very reliable and they keep in contact about their status. Highly recommend.”
– Michelle B., Santa Cruz, CA

“Very happy with your service to the airport! I was nervous about the first trip home for my freshman Slug the day before Thanksgiving. You were on time for pick up at the campus Bookstore as well as for the return trip from San Diego. Happy it was so painless and I just booked with you for her trip home at Christmas.”
– Nancy C., Carlsbad, CA

“These guys were great. Had a 4am pickup from Santa Cruz to SJC. They were on time, helped load bags, child, etc. Very clean car. will use again.”.
– Kate E., Monroe, WI

“After an extremely bad experience with a competitior, I decided to try this company to shuttle my daughter to/from UCSC and San Jose airport. What a great experience! The company and driver was outstanding!”
– Craig L., Murrietta, CA
