SuperShuttle is shutting down at the end of the year

You may need to find a new way to get to your flight.

LOS ANGELES — A van service that carried travelers to and from airport terminals around the world is hitting the brakes.

The Los Angeles Times reports SuperShuttle is shutting down. The newspaper says the business launched in California in 1983 and grew into a popular mode of transportation operating in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Asia and Europe.

Its vans were known for their blue paint jobs with bright yellow text on the sides. But, in recent years, competition from ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft have cut into SuperShuttle's bottom line.

Our sister-station ABC10 talked to spokespeople at two major airports, who confirmed the service was ending. Jonathan Dean, a spokesperson for Baltimore-Washington International Airport, said the shutdown was the result of "a shift in the marketplace."

The company plans to keep offering rides through Dec. 31.
