The app lets you connect to their service with is fuelled by some of the top transportation providers in the world like Expedia, Jetblue, Kayak, and a whole bunch more.
Use the GroundLink app to:
Book a ride: Ride Now, Ride Later
View a fully transparent list of all charges before you book
Watch while your driver is assigned
