The GO Group was formed in 2007, when 35 independent transportation companies in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe organized under the GO franchise as the world’s largest door-to-door airport shuttle company.
While the regional companies remain independently owned and managed, they market under the GO umbrella. Passengers can make reservations to and from airports in both their departure and destination cities by visiting a joint website www.goairportshuttle.com.
“The GO concept responds to a growing demand in the market for a single-source ground transportation company,” says John McCarthy, president of GO Airport Shuttle.
“Corporate travel managers, convention managers and travel companies tell us they want to do business with one supplier, one phone number and one billing system,” he explains. “Individual travelers also appear to appreciate the opportunity to have a single, reliable source for airport transportation. In 2009, traffic on the GO website has increased 71 percent to 12,000 visitors per month.”
