3:08 arrival, Rachel Brown, and 4pm ferry!

Starting to plan the important little details for our upcoming trip!

I just reserved Rachel Brown for our taxi ride to Red Hook upon arrival. What a sweet lady!

To those that have used her services: Will she leave the airport immediately? She said she has a larger vehicle. I assume she only transfers people who reserved her previously, like I did. ?

If she does whisk us off to Red Hook pretty quickly, is there even a chance we'll make the 4pm ferry?

Rachel will transport only those who have reserved her, and she will take any short cut possible (and she seems to know them all) to get you to the ferry ASAP. I can not say enough wonderful things about Rachel, she is just simply a wonderful person.

If your flight is not late, you don't have to wait for your luggage and traffic cooperates, I would say there is a chance you might make the 4 pm ferry...though with our last trip, we pulled up to the ferry dock as the ferry was pulling away.

Hi Jody, I just got back Tuesday and used Rachel both ways...She'll be there waiting with hugs...she only brings one party at a time. Our flight was badly delayed and we were very anxious to get the 4:00 Ferry...I don't think we got in the car until 3:30 and we made it (without being terrified)...

She will leave the airport as quickly as possible...the biggest potential delay is going to be your luggage. Ours came off immediately so we got in and left (and we were 7 people with carryons and two checked bags).

She was also great about telling us "it's not over 'til it's over" because the ferry often leaves late.

All depends on your luggage and traffic.

Carry on luggage saves lots of time if you want to try and make the ferry. We do it every year and are in Rachel's van within 5 minutes of getting off the plane.

We used Rachel for our first trip this past July - she is great. If you do not make the ferry no worries as they have a small bar area. Sit back, relax and have a drink. Have fun!

Does Rachel also bring folks to the downtown ferry if that timing works out better and we wanted a longer boat ride and shorter time in the car?
