GC is completely full with transportation requests for the winter break. Currently, we are only receiving requests that are already at the same transportation center and on the same date/relatively close in timeframe (within a couple of hours) as a transportation request we received earlier. Another option to explore is the BG Airport Shuttle, (419) 308-5952.
