SuperShuttle Shared Van to Airports to Shut Down

Those blue SuperShuttle vans, which have been ubiquitous at many airports since the company was founded in 1983, will cease ferrying passengers to or from their final destinations when the company that operates the service closes at the end of the year.

The company, which started at Los Angeles International Airport and expanded to many cities in the United States as well as in Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, has been pulling out of airports left and right over the past few months.

Competition from ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft greatly impacted the franchise operation.

SuperShuttle was acquired in September by Blackstreet Capital Holdings, a private equity firm that focuses on companies that are “either in transition or somewhat misunderstood,” according to its website.
