Reasonable cab

Just visited Sea World today with the family. We had originally planned on taking the Lynx bus, however last night my brother in law checked with the concierge. We were able to take 2 seven passenger vans for $19.00 each way from Saratoga Springs. We were picked up in front of our building ( in the Springs) at 9:00am and were dropped of at the gate to Sea World at 9:20. Called the cab company as we were leaving and they were there within 10 minutes to bring us back.

For my family of 6, it was well worth the extra $10 of cab fare and tip versus the bus!!!

We had a van service pick up\drop us off. It was reasonably priced for 10 of us. If it was just my family, I'd probably just get a taxi.

Took a cab from French Quarter to Sea World on Jan 25, 2013. The fare was $25 on the way there, and $35 coming back due to traffic. Very easy.

Does anyone known if the current price for Lynx to Seaworld is still $2/adult and $1/child? Also, is a 12 year old considered a child?

This was copied from the Lynx website.








Reduced Fares Application


LYNX requires any eligible passenger the opportunity to travel on local bus service or NeighborLink to use a discounted fare. Upon boarding a bus, eligible riders must present a LYNX issued ID to use the discounted fare. Failure to do so will result in you having to pay the full fare.

Passengers wishing to obtain an ID may visit the LYNX Central Station Terminal Lost & Found Window Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

To receive a Youth ID (ages 10 - 18 or still in high school) you must present a birth certificate or government issued ID (e.g., driver’s license, state ID card or passport). Riders age six and under may still ride free when accompanied by an adult (full or discounted fare). No more than three children may ride free per adult. Children six and under must pay $1 when not accompanied by an adult.


It sounds to me like the 12 year old would have to go to the Lynx station to get Youth ID to get a discount. If you are only using the busses for a day or so, in my opinion you are better off paying the adult fare.

Can you pay cash for the fares - 2 one dollar bills, or do you need to buy tokens?

Cash. When you board, use your exact change, sliding your paper money into the feeder, and dropping the coins into the box. The system will count it as you feed it. If you need a transfer, ask the driver. Transfers are free.

So take the bus from AOA to DD then the public transportation to sea world for $2 seems pretty easy to me! That's where we are staying at

Could someone please tell me if the DTD bus 50 to Sea World is still running with all the construction going on. I thought the stop was located on the West Side, but that's all blocked off right now, isn't it? So, if it is still running, where do you go to pick it up at? The Market Place?

Thanks

According to the Lynx website :
https://www.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&...=walk&dirflg=r

and:
http://www.golynx.com/core/fileparse...24-link_50.pdf

From the number of buses I see in that area-I would say the bus is still running.

Since it looks like the bus is running, does anyone know where it picks up? Because last I checked, traffic couldn't go any farther than Pleasure Island.

I believe they are still using the entrance down by Cirque.

Were going in Dec again

When we went last time we rode the bus to DTD Market place (where the Christmas ornament shop is) walked across the street and got on the bus right at the corner. Were taking it again this trip.


Does anyone know how long it takes to get there by bus?
Also is there a tread or post on how to get to the Disney store at the mall? we took a taxie last time and it was like $15 each way.
