    Default Looking for a shuttle from Gainesville to Amicalola falls on June 4th

    I am taking the greyhound to Gainesville on Tuesday June 4th. Should arrive at 10:50am Seeking a shuttle. Really cant afford a 125$+ taxi. Anybody have any ideas?

    If you don't want to pay for transportation then hitch-hike. Although $125 is high I would expect to pay $100. You are not talking about a trip around the block.

    Hmm. Never hitch hiked before... Is Gainsville a good place to start? Do you think it will take me awhile?

It would cost me around 125 to stay at the hiker hostel and get shuttled by them.... It does sound like a great place though.

    Thanks shoestring... Have a great hike! Looks like unitaxi is the only one cause every time I called another taxi they would transfer me to uni. My plan is to to try and hitch for an hour and if that doesnt work I will have to taxi for 90 bucks plus tip.... Hope i can get a hitch. Money is tight

    Take a short 5 mile taxi ride from the train station to the Home Depot on Hwy 53 (aka Dawsonville Hwy). From there it would be safe and easier to get a ride to Amicalola. That road goes almost all the way there.
