Q. Why do I prefer taxi over Uber or Lyft?
Answer: Taxis are locally owned and registered COMPANY with local authorities. You can track down the Cab/Driver in case of any incident. Taxis are a more reliable, safe and dependable source of transportation. We build a direct one-to-one business relationship with our valued customers. Our drivers are trained for the best customer services. The taxi company has to go through many background checks, acquiring commercial auto insurance, permit for the company, for each cab and for each driver.
Privacy is also one of the main concerns, your personal information is very important, and to us is very important and we never ever use your personal information/data or sell to any other company, while the ride-share hailing companies, especially UBER have poor reputation of customers privacy, they track your activities, location and sell your data and personal information to other marketing companies. Though Uber have announced they have ended post trip tracking of their customer after heavily criticized, but still. There is a trade-off, decision is yours.
