Availability is determined by comparing your request against others already scheduled within our system. Check back later in case of cancellations. If the site bounces around with suggestions of different times, then the site cannot fit your request in the available openings.
Please use our website to get quotes, check availability, and schedule pickups. If the website fails to recognize your address or flight details, please send an email through the contact us form. Flights successfully entered are tracked and adjusted automatically and dispatched accordingly. Drivers will monitor trains for you. Any additional modifications can be made by logging into your account online.
Please schedule your transportation requests as soon as possible. It is easier to schedule in advance and cancel later, than to schedule last minute and find no availability. Many Runabouts’ regulars are already scheduled weeks in advance.
Please do not be late. Airport and train transfers are monitored and given leniency. It is driver’s discretion if they can wait more than ten minutes for all other requests. As always, if you are traveling please keep your phone charged.
Please provide your airline, flight number, and expected time of arrival when filling out the booking form. Do NOT add more that 15 minutes for flight arrivals in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Lansing. Chicago and Detroit arrivals may add 30 minutes. Please also submit a contact mobile number and turn that phone on when you disembark.
RUNABOUTS may only pickup in the Commercial Lane at the airport. Unless otherwise communicated to you, please follow the signs at the airport to Car Rental. RUNABOUTS will be parked near the entrance to Car Rental.
Rates can be determined on the home page. They are per trip, not passengers. Rates are as booked.
You may select up to two stops on the website. Rates are determined up front. Stops are for picking up others en route to your destination.
Rates do not include gratuity. Gratuity is at your discretion.
We ask that you contact RUNABOUTS as soon as you have a cancellation request. Please log in and cancel your pickup, or email email@example.com with the subject line ‘cancel pickup’.
You may pay by cash, credit card, or debit card. Please have matching ID ready for card payments. Sorry, no checks.
Acceptable Credit Cards:
2010 Toyota Prius
We prefer to place a maximum of 2-3 in the Prius for comfort. If there are 4 passengers with luggage, then please understand you will need to pack light.

Not necessarily. The map is used to calculate variables. Both the fastest and shortest routes are used to calculate rates and drive times. What is displayed allows you to verify both end points.
Yes, but you must request that in the “notes” portion of the booking. More importantly, well in advance so that the driver is prepared. At least 24 hours in advance.
