First Choice Shuttle Information:

The shuttle service will be aware of your scheduled arrival time and will have your cell phone number. Please proceed to the Baggage Claim area, as you will have to walk out of the airport building, DOOR 4, to meet the First Choice Shuttle car/van from the baggage claim area. They will not have any markings on their vehicle so they can come up to the curb. They will be awaiting your call! When you call, they will confirm your pickup time and the color/type of vehicle you should watch for.

The cell phone number for First Choice Shuttle is 507-339-1651 or if you prefer to use a land-line number it is 866-444-9696.

We understand how unpredictable air travel is these days, so don't be alarmed if your flight is early or delayed. Just let First Choice Shuttle know of your new arrival time, as soon as possible. They will be up in the airport area awaiting a call from you when you are ready to be picked up.
