GO Airport Express is the oldest convention shuttle company in Chicago, providing private transportation between Chicago hotels and convention centers including McCormick Place, Navy Pier, and the Stephens Convention Center. Over the years we have established a reputation for meticulous planning and follow through. Our team of experts has:
We will work out a detailed transportation plan providing schedules, routes and boarding locations taking into consideration such factors as anticipated daily attendance, hotel blocks and traffic considerations. Our extensive knowledge of Chicago and its venues ensures flawless management planning. Whether it is working with local law enforcement for road closings, re-routing convention shuttles due to weather or traffic problems or scheduling around festivals or sporting events, GO Airport Express is uniquely prepared to handle any challenge.
For every show, our management team is on-site at all times to help direct convention attendees and ensures all vehicles are operating on schedule.
To answer attendee questions, all shuttle team members have a customized show manual that includes pertinent information such as shuttle routes and maps, lost and found information, event schedules and room numbers.
Our two-way radio system puts us in constant contact with our convention shuttle drivers.
In an effort to maintain costs, many show managers are opting to unbundle the cost of the shuttle from registration fees, and allowing attendees to pay for the service directly. GO Airport Express is the only convention shuttle provider who can offer this service through an on-line reservation system.
After the last attendee has boarded a plane for home, we’re still on the job. We prepare an in-depth analysis of the shuttle system performance to determine if next year’s event could be improved. Our summary highlights usage information: number of convention attendees per hour and per route, the average wait time during peak movements and number of additional buses provided to accommodate peak times. You also receive a full technical report with detailed usage statistics, airport ground transportation volume and suggestions for your next show.
Many times, the first impression your group gets of a convention is the ground transportation from the airport to the hotel. Through our skilled reservation specialists, professional drivers, and immaculate vehicles, GO Airport Express will guarantee your guests have an exceptional experience. We can assist you with organizing the full scope of your transportation needs from planning and coordination to on-site management and VIP services.
Every year thousands of Chicago Convention attendees use shared ride van services between downtown Chicago and O’Hare and Midway Airports. Our shared ride vans offer a savings over airport cab fares.
