Transportation and Getting to Utah:
There is no better way to begin your vacation or business trip in Utah than to have Park City Transportation/All Resort (www.parkcitytransportation.com or http://www.allresort.com, Toll Free 800.637.3803) waiting for you at the airport. Upon our arrival at Salt Lake City Airport on our direct non-stop $200 round trip flight on Delta, a sharp dressed representative attentively waited for us with a professional sign in hand displaying our name. We were escorted directly to a luxury SUV, a Lincoln Navigator, for our magic carpet ride up to Park City.
The driver was extremely knowledgeable of the area, professional and courteous. We were offered bottled water during the ride as the air is very dry — it’s important to Park City Transportation for all of their customers to be comfortable while they’re soaking up the warmth form the heated leather seats. Right on cue, the driver called our resort destination 10 minutes prior to arrival so that the hotel can prepare for a seamless check-in.
Park City Transportation has the ability to customize your ride whether you’re a small or large group. In addition to an SUV there are also luxury sedans, stretched limousines, vans and premium motor coaches.
