Taxi is really easy and reliable.
You can try Dial 7 or Carmel, both are big outfits that are used often.
Always used Carmel. However on TA and others reviews lately are terrible. I see Dial7 also has more bad than good reviews.Edited: 16 September 2021, 02:35

I would advise a taxi.
I frequent Carmel limo and Dial 7. Unfortunately, lately the only cars available are on the more expensive side.
I do not know if this is intentional, if people are using car services more or if there is another reason.
When in the city and need a taxi; the curb app has worked well for me.
Thanks for the response.
We have used Carmel for many years, and still use them regularly (as recently as a few days ago). I can highly recommend them, based on personal experience.
Better if you book airport trip at least a day in advance, and not wait until just before you have to go.
Sometimes they do not have cars available at the last minute at busy times.
(And they are much busier these days doing local trips within the city for folks who do not feel comfortable taking the subway right now.)
I hear you but it is difficult to go against the reviews. There are many!!!!!!!!!
Sure, I understand if bad reviews deter you.
I can only speak of my own personal experiences and those of family members & friends who have also used Carmel for years…and we continue to find them very dependable.
As I said in my previous post, you have more options if you reserve with them in advance — eg, more likelihood that the least expensive vehicles will be available for when you want to go. That’s why I book at least a few days in advance for airport trips.
Coincidentally, I’m taking Carmel to LGA very early tomorrow morning, and booked that a week ago. No problem reserving a “standard” vehicle instead of “luxury” car. There have been times when I wait to book until last minute and they only have the higher-priced options available. But if anything that’s my fault for not booking sooner, certainly not their fault for being busy and not having every option available all the time.
Up to you what you feel comfortable doing; but I should also point out that those regular customers who have used them for years don’t normally take the time to be posting positive reviews each time we use them. Apparently we should…..Edited: 17 September 2021, 03:50
Thanks I booked them today.
Now I’m going to worry about you….😎
But then again tomorrow will be my second Carmel airport trip in a week, coming home from LGA & heading back to LGA tomorrow.
(& my husband used Carmel to go uptown for doctor’s appt the day before yesterday)
So bon voyage, hope you’ll come back & let us know how it goes…..
(& now I also feel guilty I don’t usually bother to write good reviews each time I use them.)Edited: 17 September 2021, 04:12
