I knew there were 4 ways to get into town (21 miles)

======1) Taxi ($28 for two)
======2) Limo ($35 for two - most expensive)
======3) Shuttle
======4) Regular bus ($1.50 each).

We ruled out the regular bus on two grounds:
a) Unfamiliarity with the city
b) We had luggage..

On the internet the shuttle was $13 one way for one person or $24 each round trip for two people. So we went to the shuttle booth and they charged us $22.50 round trip - at least that's what the ticket said.

They brought us right to the door, and Bob tipped the
driver $3.

Then on the return trip, they picked us up right outside the hotel door and took us back to the airport. We wanted to go to the rental car counter which was on the lower concourse. He wouldn't let us off down there, and told us to go down the escalator. But the escalator was out of order, so we had to walk the length of the airport and go down the elevator.
