On Sept. 10, a colleague arrived at the Juneau International Airport and had to wait in the rain for one hour for a cab. This has happened to me numerous times, particularly in the winter. There are not enough cabs in Juneau to service the airport adequately, and bus service ceases at approximately 6 p.m.
This is no way for the capital to welcome visitors and residents. There should be a shuttle bus operating during the times flights are arriving. If the shuttle bus charges fees similar to cab fares it may even prove to be profitable.
