Advantages of Airport Taxi Service

Durham, NC – There are different ways to get to the airport, but in many ways taxis are the best option. Taxi services offer the best combination of convenience, reliability and cost, notes the staff at Minute RDU Taxi, a Durham taxi service.

Public Transportation: Visitors to the Raleigh-Durham Airport can take Amtrak, Greyhound or Triangle Transit local buses. The first two options might be practical if you’re arriving at the airport from fairly far away, but they are not convenient if you’re already relatively near the airport. 
Local buses are designed to be used by people who are already in the city where the airport is located, but bus services can be confusing to visitors or people who do not use them regularly. You need to figure out the schedule, where to change buses and where to get off the vehicle.  Buses can also be delayed by traffic. Plus, public transportation can be quite difficult to negotiate if you have a lot of luggage with you, notes Chinenye Olebunne, owner of Minute RDU Taxi, a Durham taxi service.

Driving: You can drive to the airport and park your car in an airport lot, but parking fees can add up. Hourly rates can be up to $24 for a day.  The daily lots range from $6 to $10 a day.  If you are embarking on a long trip, those fees can start to add up pretty quickly.  Plus, you need to get yourself and your baggage from the parking lot to the terminal. This can involve taking a shuttle – with all your luggage.

If you’re in a hurry, you may find it hard to choose the most economical parking option and still get to your plane on time. And, remember, when you return from your trip, you’ll probably be tired, explains Olebunne, owner of the green taxi company.  Will you want to drag your baggage onto a shuttle – perhaps late at night – and then drive yourself home – maybe during rush hour traffic?

Drop Off/Pick Up: You can have a friend drop you off at the airport or pick you up, but this is problematic as well.  If your flight takes off or lands in the middle of the night, you may not want to ask a friend to be up at that hour.  Plus, for security reasons, there are restrictions on where a friend’s car can wait and how long they can be near the terminal.

Taxi Services: In many ways, Durham taxis really are the best option. Our cab company is open 24 hours a day and seven days a week. You can call on them if you have to be at the airport at 4 a.m. and you can reserve a taxi in advance online or on the phone. Their services are reasonably priced; they offer flat rates to and from the airport – which customers can view on their website. Best of all, explains Olebunne, their Durham airport taxi service means you can relax – you don’t have to live with the hassles and stress of driving or taking the bus.
