Commercial Shuttles

The shuttles listed below are offered with no guarantee of your satisfaction, just as a courtesy to the hikers.  These are commercial companies, and individuals that at one time or other have said that they provide shuttles.  Any arrangements are between them and the hiker, and the BMTA is not responsible.

Due to the number of requests, we do not email shuttle requests to members anymore, nor do we try to provide those connections.
