I spoke with the Owl Bus Service and it is true that during the
'off-season' they only run on M,W,F; and they are not being at all flexible
about this. I then spoke with the folks at Grand Geneva. While they don't
have their own shuttle service, they are now aware of the problem and
looking into alternatives. So far, one alternative that they suggested
that is only slightly better than the Limo Service at O'Hare is...
Solid Gold Limo service based in the Lake Geneva area. Their rate is $125
per trip and they can fit up to three people. Their phone number for
reservations is 1(414)723-8456.
If Grand Geneva comes up with any other alternatives, I'll pass them on.
I'm really sorry about any inconvenience that this may be causing you and
For those who can arrange it, shuttle connections from Mitchell Field in
Milwaukee are much better than from O'Hare.
