I'm going to be flying into Birmingham Airport and need to get to Hanceville, AL. I don't drive so I'd like to take a bus if possible. I found a shuttle service but it'll be around $150 round trip - GULP - that's expensive. Any ideas? Much appreciated if you can help.

It's quite a drive to a rural area. $150 is not bad. You might want to arrange in advance to make sure someone will be there willing to take you that far.
Otherwise, get someone you know to come get you. Or rent a car.
And hon, don't expect a bagel stand.

LOL, that's funny. No, I won't expect any bagels in Alabama.

Thanks for your comment. I have a shuttle company that I'll be using - that's what the $150 RT charge will be for. They are reputable and recommended by the Birmingham Airport folks.

Glad to know that $150 is a reasonable charge.

Thanks!!

Now if we could just get New Yorkers to reduce the price of Broadway tickets...

Oh Harry,

if it were the New Yorkers setting the prices of Broadway shows - they'd never be as expensive as they are. It's the Producers and Theatre owners who set the prices. It might not be Broadway but there's tons of free theatre that happens around the city - and it's quality theatre too.

And, of course, for $2.75 you can always ride the subway. You'll always be guaranteed a good show.

When I was riding the F train and Myrtle El, the fare was 15 cents.

Oh my. It hasn't been 15cents for quite some time. They've changed up the subway cars since then too.
