Sunshine Shuttle partners with Sandestin to provide tram service

Since then, Sunshine Shuttle has grown to the largest ground transportation company in Northwest Florida, with a fleet of more than 50 vehicles and service 24-hour a day, seven days a week.

“Outside of the hospitality industry, we are the largest employer in this area, and continue to create new jobs as we secure current and future contracts,” said Alan Roberts, who handles sales and marketing for Sunshine Shuttle.

The company also has expanded into to two other divisions, Sunshine Limousine and Sunshine Coach, which offers buses that can hold more than 50 passengers.

“We have really found a niche,” Finch said. “It’s not coming in as a cab or a taxi. We come in at the top of the market providing just a complete, professional way of providing ground transportation, and that’s why the community, the commissioners and the boards have really supported our vision and what we’re bringing here to the Emerald Coast.”

Roberts said the early success of the program shows that Tallahassee doesn’t always hold the answers to solving local problems like traffic gridlock.

“This program was put together with zero funding from the government,” said Roberts. “Working together for the greater good of the community is best for all employers, big and small.”
