You don’t have to own a car to have a car. If you live in a city or urban area, you know that owning a car can be a huge hassle. Getting around the city isn’t very easy, and finding somewhere to park can be almost impossible. Using a Somerville taxi can be a valuable resource if you’ve decided not to own a car.

A Great Help to Tourists
If you’re visiting, a taxi is one of the best ways to get around a city. You can hire a cab as a sightseeing vehicle, or just hire a cab to get you to a meeting or dinner when you don’t know how to get there. Transportation can be quite challenging in an unfamiliar place, so hiring a taxi cab makes a lot of sense.

Getting to and from the Airport
Contrary to some beliefs, taxis to and from the airport are not among the most expensive ways to travel. Taxis are a quick, efficient and affordable way to get to or from the airport. Many airport taxis charge a flat rate to the various zones they cover. Taxis are also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. No matter what time your flight gets in, and whether that flight was on time or four hours late, a taxi will be available at the airport. Imagine what you’d pay a limousine company to wait for you that long. Driving your own car to the airport, while an option, usually isn’t a good one. In addition to paying for gas and any tolls you incur along your way, you’ve got to pay to park. Depending on how long your trip is going to be, parking can add up to a fairly large sum of money. Besides, you don’t want to have to leave your car outside in a large parking lot when you’re gone. Leave it at home where it will be much safer, then take a taxi back home after your trip.

Convenient Travel
Whether you’re young or old, you will appreciate the convenience of a Somerville taxi. You call the car when you need it, and when you’re at your destination you leave it – simple, convenient and affordable.
