    Is it possible to get a shuttle service from airport in Fort Myers to Sarasota airport as that might be cheaper than taxi.

    Was told that there is good bus service in Sarasota so thought they would have a bus line to Fort Myers? Hope someone can help as I do not drive. Thanks.

    Just advised that The Florida Shuttle Servie is available point to point and I can also book door to door, about50 full cost which is great. I will use this shuttle if I need it. If spouse can travel with me we will have car, but needed to have options and avoid having to book new return airline ticket.

    great for the shuttle, you should put it as a tip here for others to use it later.
    cheers

    I've used Ambassador Transportation often for such trips. I looked up the fare to Sarasota on www.AmbassadorTransportation.Biz and it's139 from anywhere in the Fort Myers/Sanibel area to Sarasota. Their phone number is 239-204-0783. Ask for Pam, maybe she can get you a discount if they're not to busy on the day you want to go. Lafayette Melvin

  • Re: Fort Myers to Sarasota and visit to Myakka State Park

    Just to update all who helped me, I have booked my ticket to ride the Florida shuttle door to door from Ft. Myers to Sarasota and will pay48 total cost. I am so pleased that I did not have to book a new return flight.

    Does anyone know if there is a bus/tram/trolley service from Sarasota out of Myakka State Park? We have gone there many times but this trip I'll be solo without car so might have to take a taxi service if there is no other service.

    Thanks to all.
