Description of service

A taxi ride with my grandmother and I, from my condo to a nearby mall. All the drivers we had were very kind and polite. The taxi ride was about 20 minutes there and back, 2-3 miles each way. We waited an hour for the taxi to come when we called to be picked up, however.

Review of Service

It took a long time for the taxi to arrive, and he could not get into our gated condo. He was very polite and cordial, however. My grandmother is blind, and he was not nosy and helped her into the car. Upon being picked up from the mall we went to, we had a different taxi driver. He was also polite and kind, and helped carry the items we purchased up to our condo.


I definetly advise people to know the taxi rate or ask when you call. Some taxi companies charge more or less, but all taxi companies charge just to get in. Also, don't loiter unless you have to, because they charge you for that too! I would recommend calling for a taxi at least an hour before you need to be somewhere (also take into account how long it takes to get there). Don't carry just the money you need to get there, because most of the time it is more expensive! Riding in a taxi should be used only when you don't have a car or can't get somewhere.
