For travel into Paris, consider the Paris Shuttle. It's similar to SuperShuttle here and offers shared rides from either Orly or Charles de Gaulle airports to your hotel. Currently, the one-way price for two is $27 each. Depending on the location of your hotel, you may not be dropped off first, but it is a chance to see other parts of the city (even if you're bone-tired). We book online in advance and have used them several times with no problems. Paris Shuttle, http://www.parishuttle.com Jeannine Christensen Orange

The largest shuttle bus operator at Los Angeles International Airport has gone to court to thwart alleged unfair business practices by an upstart competitor. Supershuttle of Los Angeles Inc., with a fleet of 200 blue and gold vans, alleges that American Transportation Enterprises Inc., which operates only five vans, has stolen customers by mimicking Supershuttle's color scheme and invading its state-designated service area. The Torrance Superior Court suit demands that American repaint its Amtrans Airport Shuttle vans and keep them out of Supershuttle's service areas in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

Details of the cash transaction were not disclosed, but Mitchell Rouse, founder and chairman of SuperShuttle, predicted the company will generate $15 million in revenue this year, more than double last year's total.

Leave early and take a shuttle or public transit if possible. That's the most common advice being given to those headed to Los Angeles International Airport this " Carmageddon " weekend, when a stretch of the 405 Freeway will be closed. The affected segment of the freeway is north of LAX, but the closure is expected to affect traffic in a wide area. Lane and ramp shutdowns are expected to begin as early as 7 p.m. Friday, and the freeway is expected to reopen by 6 a.m. Monday morning.
