Ground Transportation from Ft.Lauderdale Airport

What is the best way to get from the Ft. Lauderdale airport to Wellington? Train? then taxi? My mom lives in Wellington. I had a limo on my last visit and it is very expensive.

The problem w/ the tri-rail is that once you get off at your exit in WPB, you will still need a taxi out to Wellington which is fairly far west so will cost $$$. I know the airports also have shuttles that will give you a ride home. I am not certain of the specifics on it, however several people I know have used them. The shuttles may contain several people going your direction and will drop each person off along the way. I would google some info on that as well and maybe you can find a cheap rate. It is cheaper than a limo service. Also, maybe a rent a car? You could rent one for 1 day and drive yourself, then drop it at a location in Wellington once you get there?

I would call around for a different car service. If I recall and I don't have the guys number but I took one from Boca to FLL and it was under 40.

You can take tri rail to WPB "airport" stop and then the free bus to the airport PBI. From there go to arrivals and arrange the shared shuttle at the desk by baggage claim. A bit more of a hassle but saves $$.
