We get it.
You're looking for the best value when you're flying in or out of SFO and need a ride. But before you choose an Uber or Lyft, there are a few things you should know.
First, remember that taxis will always be more expensive than Uber or Lyft. In many instances, Uber and Lyft are more expensive than taxis.
Second, read the reviews! There's no better way to ensure that you're getting a reliable ride than by reading what other people have had to say about it. We always encourage our customers to do this so they can rest assured that they'll arrive at their destination safely and on time.
Thirdly, consider whether or not you'd be willing to work for 1/3 of what you make now. That's exactly what these rideshare services did when they slashed prices in order to compete with taxi companies—they lowered wages for drivers!
At Airport Taxi Cab Services, it's different: we pay our drivers fair wages and provide them with an opportunity to make living wages.
By working with rideshare services, drivers are not able to pay their day-to-day expenses instead of giving up those profits to CEO salaries like Uber does, we divide them amongst our drivers. One thing you should know as a consumer is that there are consequences to cheaper fares. Uber and Lyft did not consider the impact on drivers when they slashed prices. They knew that lower fares would mean less wages for drivers, which would lead to unpredictable consequences.
At Airport Taxi Cab Services, we work with a rideshare service where drivers are paid well and back into our company for growth - so you know where your money is going!
