    It is hit or miss with shared ride.I was once really late going to fort lauderdale airport because the airport shuttle came to my house an hour before my flight and had to get one more person. Then it took 20 minutes to get to airport. I just made it but was angry that they didn’t time it right for getting to the ft lauderdale airport. I wonder if they compensate you if they get there too late to make air flight.
