Transportation from LP to Upper Benson, and Parking at Upper Benson

Me and 3 friends are hiking the NPT this coming week, entering at Upper Benson and exiting at Averyville. I am posting to see if anyone on here would be willing to provide us with a ride down from Lake Placid to Upper Benson on Sunday the 6th or Monday the 7th, or if anyone could provide a contact for a shuttle service of some sort.

Also, I've read on here that someone offers parking for a dollar a day right by the Upper Benson trailhead. Can anyone confirm that this is still available?

There is a free parking area in upper benson. I have never had a problem parking there for a week. Closer to the trail register is the "dollar a day" parking. The sign was still there this summer. It only saves a few feet of walking. Not worth it in my opinion. Have fun on the trail.

A bit late on this, but FYI, the official "required" trailhead for the NPT has been moved a short ways east of Upper Benson. There is a new section of trail that swings around Woods Lake and approaches the old trail from the North.
