Are there any charter busses from the Airport that will take me to Punta Gorda after I land?
No bus service from PIE to Punta Gorda, -you can try to catch local taxi cab ....you can bargain with them and find cheapest, please make sure, they are legit operators with commercial insurance, city licenses, etc
Lately, there are a lot of illegal companies advertising on google.
Some of the companies I would recommend are :
Discount taxi http://stpetersburgfltaxi.com/
Bats Taxi http://www.batstaxi.com/index.html
or United Taxi http://www.gounitedtaxi.com/
Advantage of Discount taxi is that if you make reservation online, you can make them drive you to Punta Gorda for $1.80 a mile in fully insured and licensed cab stpetersburgfltaxi.com/pie-st-petersburg-cle…
United is more expensive, but they have taxi stand at west end of terminal and their cabs are almost always there.Edited: 24 March 2018, 20:35
