ENTERING THE VEHICLE  

REGARDING YOUR RIDE

• Always remember to enter and exit on the curbside and to ook for bike riders, runners, and walkers that may be approaching the vehicle.   Fees for toll, bridges, tunnels, and border cross are usually included in your fare. There is no surcharge for entering or leaving NJ.
• Try to get the name of the driver and the taxicab's number upon entering and make sure the City of New Jersey issued plate is displayed on the vehicle.    Taxi drivers expect customers to pay between 10% and 20% gratuity for their service.
• Also try to provide as much information as possible about your destination to the driver or ask for information.When possible, attempt to get the rate that you will be paying when your reach your destination in advance.   Fee per mile rate outside our main service area, excluding airports, will be charged at $2.50.
• It is advised that passengers wear seat belts to increase safety.   Prices reflect trips for up to 4 passengers. Airport Rates are subject to change. Please call to confirm your price.
• Request a car seat or booster that is appropriate for your child's age or bring your on.   Privacy and Confidentiality: Your information will never be shared with any third party organization. We will keep relevant information (e.g., name, date of birth, etc) stored in a secured place and will use it only when you use our service. Information will be erased or destroyed twelve months after received should we never need to make use of it during this time.
• Passenger capacity should not exceed vehicle manufacturer seating capacity (e.g, the number of seat belts).  

Always be sure to place your reservation at least 45 minutes in advance, when your pick up is at the airport, to allow sufficient time for your taxi to arrive. Please CALL our base AFTER receiving your luggage or preferably right after landing. We will provide you with instructions at that moment.

• Under no circumstance drivers are allowed to use electronic mobile devices or wear ear buds while driving.
  It is against the law to dispatch a suburban taxi into the terminals without a call in. Beware that there is a no curb and no waiting policy at EWR, LGA and JFK Airports.

 

AN ENJOYABLE JOURNEY...  

PAYING FOR A TAXICAB

At the start of your trip, advise the driver where you'd like to go. Indicate your preferred route and how you'd like to pay.
Talk to your driver. Drivers are trained, accredited and licensed, and may be a good source of relevant ideas.
Travel in comfort. If you'd like the heater, air conditioner or music adjusted ask the driver.
Always get a receipt. It's a record of your fare and travel and will help if you've lost property, or wish to provide feedback.
Take down the cab number. All taxis have the number on the side, so take down the cab number in case you need to provide feedback.
Do the right thing. It is recommended that you sit in the back seat if alone.
 
You will be asked to swipe your card using an approved portable, mobile credit card payment device. This convenient system is a safe way of paying for your fare when no cash is available, or if you prefer this method of payment.
There is no extra charge for using your credit card or card reader to pay for your fare.
Double check ALL credit/debit transactions for the dollar amount being charged before signing authorizing payment.
Ask driver to send you a receipt to via text or email for your records.
