Tourism chief checks ground transportation services at LMM’s Terminal ‘A’

Tourism Chief Luis Rivera-Marín chats with a taxi driver during his review of ground transportation services at Terminal A.

Tourism Company Executive Director Luis Rivera-Marín on Monday went to check the work being done in the area of ground transportation service at Terminal A, what is now known as the JetBlue Terminal at the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport.

Last week, the carrier began shifting its flights and passengers into the terminal that had remained empty and unused since late 2004, after the government broke ground on the futuristic-looking airport facility.

In preparation for that, Tourism, the Ports Authority and JetBlue have been working together to coordinate transportation services and other passenger-related logistics, Rivera Marín said.

“After being closed for about eight years, the terminal is ready to open for operations and this requires the participation of the taxi drivers and other tourism transport operators, sightseeing companies, and limousines to determine the logistics of picking up and dropping off passengers at the airport,” he said.

Rivera-Marín explained that ground transportation traffic flow at Terminal A was changed so that the taxi traffic is more effective, while Ports is working on signage in Terminal A to guide and direct visitors to different areas assigned to transportation services.
