View Full Version : URGENT: Need ride form Cinci to Indy on March 30th 5PM

I am arriving tomorrow at 4 PM in Cincin

I am looking for a ride to Indy (CFH) to begin with, and while we're at it, spare ticket for low budget wallets is wanted to

Due to the router loss and subsequent outage I have lost a bundle of money and a customer as well as some new orders and a new client, I was not going to come, however one customer whom i worked very hard for heard this and was kind enough to give me a return ticket to CinCin.

I need all the help ppl are willing to give :D

cheap hotels are wanted to, not for the night of the game though as I was offered lodging by a kind person for that night.

open for all kind of suggestions that do not get me in jail :D

Hi able, I've got some good news for you. The fare is only 20 Dollar one-way.
You need to switch in Dayton though:

I didn't consider your timeschedule before, to be able to arrive in IP in time you need to take the bus at 14.00 pm, which is the only one that goes directly.

Uh the game is at 7 so this is not possible.


BTW able I can definatley take you back to Cincy on Monday.

rushmore
03-29-2006, 09:57 PM
I can't pick you up, but I can throw in some on a rental car if that would help.

I don't know how to work it out, but I'm sure we can come up with a collection for you...

Just a thought...

I'll start the pledging at $20 if that helps...

able
03-29-2006, 10:00 PM
rental takes some things I won't have handy, 1 is a cc (well i have two but uhh part of what I had to pay on parts took care of that :) ) and 2 is a driving license, I have one, but that is being "changed" from Dutch to English because A: i didn;t count on going anymore and B because I was warned to do that by the police, but certainly thanks for the offer

rushmore
03-29-2006, 10:08 PM
Darn...sorry...

If my car could make it out of Indy I would try, but that would be a gamble. It'll be 20 this year. It used to be a luxury car back in the mid-80's.


After all Able's done for us, can't anyone go pick him up? It would really only take like three hours from Indy...round trip. You don't have to drive in to Cincy or anything. It's really easy...

Of anyone on this whole da*n board, he's the guy we should be going out of our way for....seriously....

It looks like the biggest problem will be getting in from Ohio.

I'd love to help if I didn't live in Alabama. But many airports have driver services where they'll drive you to your destination. Don't know if it's cheaper than a taxi though. Guessing it's about 90 bucks or so if that's in your budget.

Chauncey
03-29-2006, 11:47 PM
I dont have a phone with me, someone call the airport taxi and ask them how much from Cincy to Indy:

Taxi Cab Service
Visit the taxi desk in the baggage claim area of Terminal 3 or use the courtesy phone near the exits of Terminals 1 and 2 (dial 3260) to make arrangements. Service is available 24 hours a day. The fare from the airport to downtown Cincinnati is $24. Call (859) 767-3260 for more information.

What time would you need to be in Indy?

able
03-30-2006, 12:08 AM
preferably BEFORE the game :)
am arriving on CVG at 4.05 PM and have no checked in luggage
so hope to be "out" at 5 PM

game is at 8 PM

Pacersfan46
03-30-2006, 12:10 AM
I don't get off work until 4 PM. I might be able to do it, but I'm not sure if it would be soon enough. Also, how many people will be with you?

able
03-30-2006, 12:12 AM
Me, Myself and I
one small bag, one camera bag and that is it

OK I am not that small so maybe you want to count me for two :)

But where do you need to come from ?

Pacersfan46
03-30-2006, 12:14 AM
I live in Indy.

heywoode
03-30-2006, 12:14 AM
Not that I have a solution, but what time are you getting into Cincy, able?

Do you have cell phone or other contact info you can leave with Hicks or someone else? That will buy some more time for someone to come up with something...

I can see plans are limited but are there ways to alter what times and where you will be from now until tomorrow? I assume since we are talking about getting you from Cinci to Indy, you have no choice but to be in Cinci? I'm curious as to what your exact itenerary looks like. Surely you aren't landing in Cinci from England, so I assume you are maybe flying into Boston or NYC and connecting into Cinci...If that is the case, is there a way to change your second flight and connect into another city?

I haven't read much here today, so I wouldn't have noticed if this issue has already been touched upon...Good luck to you able....I pray it works out for you!

Why not a train?

Amtrak - leaves at 3:00 am or so, arrives at 7:00 am - $19. Drops you off blocks from conseco.

You've got only a couple of hours to get there - so no waiting until 3am for a train. sorry.

03-30-2006, 12:22 AM
ok contact information: I am carrying a blackberry, my email wil probably not be working in the air, but till ( am local (GMT +1) it will certainly and since the phone function is not active i might "forget" to turn it of in the plane

so email is working

and during my stop over in Amsterdam it will certainly be on

Hicks has my mobile, so does Ragnar

dayum...the only solution I see is for someone to be there when you arrive and drive you to Indy....Unfortunately, that is the one way I can't help you, my friend....My schedule is brutal already, and the times just will not work...I even checked Amtrak, and the only train from and to leaves Cinci at 305am....It's only $30...

I hope you can leave info and be in contact with someone from here once you hit Cinci. Do I assume that you don't have any other people to contact? What happens if you don't get something worked out?

(edit-duh...by the time I get a post ready, it is old news...still want to know the answers to second paragraph!!

(edit2-double duh...good luck able...

03-30-2006, 12:52 AM
Able, here's the deal. I have to get up in 6 hours to go to work. I'll leave you my work phone number, and directions on how to get the person at the desk to get the call through to me.

I don't know when I can get there, mainly because of the horrible timing on your arrival, and my time for getting off work. It will be rush hour traffic nearly in Indy, and surely in Cincy. It may be slow going. So, hopefully you can find someone who can leave at an earlier time.

However if no other opprotunity presents itself, I will try. I'll provide you with the necissary information in your email box.

able
03-30-2006, 12:55 AM
OK now I have 1.6 offer, and that is good :)

however, there is a time frame to consider, as in what time would you expect to be in Cincin Pacersfan46 ?

(I am just worried we both get back in time here)

there is a very kindly provided safety net, but I prefer "the easiest" way for all involded, I feel bad enough as it is to be a burden

Thanks all anyway for the support, it's heart warming

Well, if you're literate you'll notice I offered to go get him if it was on time for him.

I was more laughing at how obvious it was that it wouldn't be possible that the train would work. It wouldn't leave until the game was over for a few hours. Not his misfortune, but your misunderstanding.
I'm sorry.

I'm cranky and I know that's no excuse.

I wish I couls take back the post, but there's no point as the damage is already done.

Again, I'm sorry.

I dont mind the drive. My only problem was scheduling. I have to move some things arround to get there in time. One thing that helps is its an 8:00pm game and I had thought it was a 7pm game so there is not as much of a time crunch as I had thought there would be.

Pacerfan46 came through. he had offered last night but I guess his email to able did not get through. I talked to him (Pacerfan46) over yim today and he is going to be able to get to the airport sooner than I can so he will take the duty.

I was looking foreward to meeting able tonight but I will meet him tomorrow at the forum party anyway. Pacerfan46 did not know about the forum party so I invited him (no one reads the sticky's I guess) so we will all need to thank him at the party and needles to say his pizza, drinks and pie will be free!!

This will truly be a night that everyone will remember, and thanks to Pacersfan46 so will Able. Lets not forget that Pacersfan46 doesn't even have a ticket.

I'm proud to say that I share a small similarity with such selfless people in that we're Pacer fans.

It is a good thing Carlisle wasn't coaching the two of you in this operation...Able would never had had made it.





Obviously a joke, but with all the Carlisle threads, it just seemed right....um, wrong....nah, right to post it.

Enjoy the game tonight everyone, I will be watching it joyfully from my home in New Orleans, currently only under 1.5 feet of water!
