    Taxi rate as of May 2008

    by stamporama Written Jun 5, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As of May 2008, the rates of the yellow (are there others?) taxis are shown on the photo, as taken on a taxi's door.

    I wonder how long this rate will hold?

    Yellow taxi's are plentiful and relatively easy to catch. Be sure to give cross streets or landmarks as a destination, as opposed to a specific address...

    Taxis - No city in the USA has more per capita than New York. They're efficient and reasonably affordable. They do travel in packs, though.

    Take a Water Taxi

    It would be cool to use the Water Taxi.
    I never used one myself.

    But I would think it would be fast and fun!

    Taxis are the fastest way of getting to places in new york city. as almost all the drivers are a bit crazy youll end up going from one place to another very fast.

    YELLOW CABS

    It is not a bad way to get around NY. there are lots of cabs. At any time of the night or day, you should be able to find one. (Except from 2am, when people leave nightclubs).

    If you dont want to spend walking around get a cab. They are moderately proced and will take you where ever you need to go. Just tip them if you are happy with the service.

    Especially when it's been pouring like a Monsoon and then the temps drop by 20 degrees! And just look at how many cute gay boys I can pack myself into a cab with!

    If you're taking a taxi, hold...

    If you're taking a taxi, hold on! ... unless you're in a gridlock. The subway and the buses (surprisingly clean) are excellent mode of transportation.

    Taxi service

    by jwilliams2005 Written Oct 9, 2007

    If you do not know your way around the city and you must take a taxi, may I recommend the limosine service that is located at most hotels. It may save you a few dollars.

    I love taxis!

    Taxis are an important part of NYC, however expensive they may be. I dont recommend the front- the speed gets scary.

    Teh yellow cabs are all over the streets. So there's no problem to get one. Budget travellers should buy the metro-card. tehy offer weekly prices, so you can drive as often and as far as you like.
