If you're visiting New York for the first time or even if you've been there before, the task of finding affordable and efficient transport to and from the airport is daunting to say the least. You have a range of choices from the New York Limousine to popular app-based services like Uber and Lyft. You will need an experienced driver to get the best out of your visit so knowing who will get you from A to B without hiccups is vital.
Popular arrival points to the big apple include JFK, Newark & La Gaurdia airport. If you're looking to get acquainted with the sights of Queens or Downtown Manhattan, the New York city car service drivers come with decades of intimate knowledge gained from transporting thousands across countless streets and back streets. They are aware of every possible parking space and the quickest way to arrive at your destination. While most Uber and Lyft drivers are relatively new and place a great reliance on technology to get around, a cabbie or an NYC Limo driver can take you to the most nuanced of venues and attractions. Try reading Eugene Salmon's 'Confessions of a New York Taxi Driver' to get an understanding of a cabbie's unrivaled knowledge of where to take a great snapshot or sample the finest local cuisine.
Along with considering the safety and accountability that comes with traditional transport in NY, you probably won't feel like being 'pooled' with other passengers when you have just been through a long flight and fought your way through the hustle and bustle of the busy airport. You may have an important meeting to attend and you simply have to be there on time. Another thing to consider is whether you want to play a flat rate or face the uncertainty of unfixed fluctuating prices. TripAdvisor's New York City travel forum has some rather negative reviews regarding the pricing of Uber services. Elsewhere online, users note the random nature of using Uber or Lyft. Your driver could quite literally be anyone, even a nonnative of the city looking to make a bit of cash on the side.
NY Cabs and Limos are no less comfy a ride than their competitors, the most recent addition to the fleet is the Nissan NV200, a spacious car with ports for charging your phones but most importantly with drivers who have a much greater chance of knowing where they are going. You can save on fares and ensure your ride is on time by calling for a pre-quote and pre-booking in advance. For traveling in style, localized services can provide you with a chauffeured SUV. For large groups, a stretch Hummer could be an option. Local drivers will be sure to recommend must see historical sites, fantastic eateries, the best nightlife and spots where you can take in the rich ethnically diverse cultures of one of the most iconic cities in the world.
