New Roch. to Twin Cities shuttle to take off
Travelers soon will have a new option for getting back and forth to the Twin Cities airport and Mall of America. Rochester Shuttle Service is revving up to take off in November.
The new service plans to run a fleet of four shuttles with 12 round-trips a day to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and Mall of America, seven days a week. It will pick up passengers at the Holiday Inn Express on South Broadway in downtown Rochester.
Owners Joel Moffitt and Michael Wees believe the crowds of people coming in and out of the Twin Cities can easily fuel a second shuttle company in the Med City.
"There is certainly room in the market for two shuttle services," says Moffitt, referring to Rochester Go Direct, the company based out of the Kahler Hotel.
Wees, who also owns Rochester Limousine, says the shuttle offers online reservations for passengers as well as taking reservations by phone.
Starting today, reservations will be accepted online, with phone reservations starting Nov. 1. The shuttle will begin running on Nov. 15.
The pair expect to staff the business with 25 full-time and part-time employees.
