Malden MA Taxi Takes You There

Taxis are an invaluable resource when you don’t have a car of your own. Think about all the places you go. Even if you live in a city with excellent public transportation, there are times you need a ride of your own. If you’re in an unfamiliar city, taxis are particularly helpful. Just tell the driver where you need to go, and he’ll get you there.

Airport Runs
Heading to the airport can be stressful. So many questions run through your mind if you drive yourself: Will there be traffic, where will you park, will you remember where you parked when you get back? Why put yourself through all of that when you can let someone else drive you there and be there when you return? Taxi services make going to the airport much easier. Your car will be safe at home and you’ll be on your way to your destination feeling relaxed.

Transportation for Those Who Don’t Have a Car
If you don’t have a car, you know how inconvenient it can be just doing some simple things. Going to the doctor, going grocery shopping or just going out with friends can become frustrating unless you have a reliable Malden MA taxi service.

Taxi Service History
The first incarnation of the taxi was first seen in London in 1605! In 1636, what we now know as the taxi stand, appeared outside of the Maypole Inn. These horse drawn carriage taxis were known as Hackney Carriages. Today taxi cabs come in all shapes and sizes with many places using hybrid vehicles for their cabs. You can find a cab to suit your needs in just about any major city or airport.

Taxi Fares
A number of things can influence the fare you will pay. Most taxi companies charge an entrance fee. This is usually a minimal dollar or two. Next is the distance you’re traveling and the time you spend in the cab. Finally, there are surcharges that may be added if you’re traveling during a peak time. If you’re traveling to or from an airport, many Malden MA taxi cab companies will post a flat fee to designated zones in their coverage area. All fares and regulations are posted in each taxi cab.
