Groome transportation preparation for the holidays

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Forty million Americans are headed to different places across the country this Thanksgiving holiday, but some in the valley are choosing not to drive; instead they're hopping on vans through Groome Transportation going to the busiest airport in the world.

People at Groome say they prefer using them for the holidays because they're able to beat the traffic, get dropped off right at their airline gate, as well as enjoy the free parking.

"It's the most efficient way to travel instead of traveling through the traffic it's easy to travel through Groome," Keith Thornton said.

"They were the easiest and cheapest and I've used them before and they always have great service. So it's the fastest way for me to get from ATL to Columbus," Tara Dillon said.

Managers tell me their parking lots are full but they do have an overflow lot so you want to make sure you get to Groome at least 15 minutes before your scheduled departure.

Parking is free and tickets are $36 for a one way ticket and $72 round trip.
