About Us

* See Important Notice Below *

Appalachian Services® is a trip-by-trip personal transportation service providing both one-time and multi-trip contract transportation for individuals or small groups. We are neither a taxi nor a limousine service. Our mission is to provide dependable, safe, and affordable transportation and support services to hikers, backpackers, and other clients.

We began in 2001 as a support and transportation service for hikers on the Appalachian Trail as well as shorter trails in, or near, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  In 2003 we expanded into providing non-emergency transportation to non-hikers for things like doctor/dentist visits, physical therapy sessions, cancer treatments, and trips to/from airports and bus stations.  In 2005 we added providing long-distance transportation to those who do not like the hassle of flying or the long delays encountered when traveling by bus.  Also in 2005 we expanded our services to hikers on the Bartram, Benton MacKaye, and Mountains-To-Sea Trails.   In 2012, we offered support and transportation services to cyclists (bicycles).  Even more services are planned for the near future.  If there is any service you need that is not listed here please let us know and we will accommodate your needs if at all possible.

We heartily welcome international travelers, and have provided services for people from around the world.  If you are an international traveler and are considering using our transportation services please see the “International Travelers” tab of this website for more information.

NOTICE: We allow our passengers to carry concealed weapons during their shuttles Under Specific Conditions. If this is of interest to you  See Our Concealed Weapon Policy by clicking HERE BEFORE scheduling your shuttle.

For more information on any of the above please click on the appropriate tab at the top of this page.  To schedule a shuttle or other service please click on the convenient CONTACT US link at the top of this page.  Your personal information will not be visible to other users.

Thank you for your interest in our service(s).  🙂

* Important Notice *  Appalachian Services has temporarily suspended its hiker support services due to the death of an immediate family member who was integral to its proper operation.  In the interim we are attempting to complete a book we began compiling in 2014 chronicling hiker experiences on, and around, the Appalachian Trail.  For more information regarding this book, and/or to submit information regarding your own experiences on the AT, please go to https://TalesFromTheAT.wordpress.com.

    I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a website or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it is a result of the passion displayed in the post I looked at. And after this I was moved enough to post a comment 🙂 I actually
    do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like a few of
    the responses look as if they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you make a list every one of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?

    I’ve been exploring for a little while, looking for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this sort of venue. While exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site. I am glad to say that I found exactly what I needed. I will make sure to do not omit this website and give it a look regularly.

    Hello it’s me, I am also visiting this website on a regular basis. The web site is fastidious and the visitors are sharing nice thoughts.

  40. AirportsMadeSimple

    What a great idea! Very smart. And thanks for stopping by my blog! Feel free to comment on any airports you want- just find the right one with the category drop-down and say anything “real life” real people want to know. Since your site is travel-related, feel free to add links to your site, too. Then, everytime someone pulls up and reads about that airport, you’ll have them seeing your links, too. 🙂
