Elite Shuttle Service provides professional transportation specially tailored to serve wedding and event venues and their clients. We can create customized schedules to meet a wide variety of transportation needs.
I. Our Shuttles – We operate 2019 or newer Ford Transit 350 15-passenger vans. These vans can accommodate 14 passengers plus the driver.
II. Our Services – Elite Shuttle Service prides itself on being professional, punctual, and flexible. We can provide door-to-door services for guests from their accommodations to the venue and return them to their accommodations. We can also help identify a central location for guest parking/pick up. We help build customized shuttle schedules for our clients to maximize efficiency and safety.
III. Our Pricing – Elite Shuttle Service charges strictly by time in service. We do not base our fees on distance traveled or number of passengers transported. We have a 6 hour minimum time in service at a flat rate of $425. Each hour above the 6hr minimum is charged at a rate of $50 per hour. Driver gratuity is not included in the pricing.
IV. Afterhours and Excursions – ESS can provide afterhours transportation for guests following an event who may wish to visit local clubs/restaurants. We can also design excursions for groups wishing to visit area attractions including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
V. Multiple shuttles can be requested. Our recommendation is one shuttle for fewer than 80 guests. Two shuttles for 80+ guests.
The shuttle cannot transport food, beverages (alcohol), etc. Please have a vehicle at the venue at the end of the evening to transport excess supplies.
VI. Scheduling – Please call Tony at 865-223-3667 or 865-268-9284 to reserve your transportation. You may also email ESS at firstname.lastname@example.org
VII. The Contract – Once the shuttle schedule has been completed to the satisfaction of the client, a final contract will be drawn and delivered via Honeybook. This contract provides a detailed description of services provided by ESS, an itemized listing of costs associated with shuttle service, and an opportunity for the client to choose their preferred payment method. ESS must receive the completed contract at least two weeks prior to the event date.
