As the need to get from one place to another consumes our lives, so does the number of logistical solutions (and conundrums) rise. How many times today have you found yourself wondering how to get to Annandale from BWI Marshal Airport today? How often you have to research the quickest route from Falls Church to Torpedo Art Center? Questions like these monopolize our time and attention. In the face of all those ever-present transportation puzzles that one has to solve, the old saying “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey” takes on a completely different, almost mandatory tone. It has to be about the journey since so much time is spent on the road.
The time spent in vehicles, getting from one point to another, takes up a lot of any person’s day, week, year, especially if you live in Northern Virginia in this day and age. It’s only reasonable you would want to make that time as pleasant as possible, whether you’re on your way from Alexandria to Dulles, to a convention or if you’re simply enjoying a night out on the town.
You know that Alexandria Yellow Cab team cares about your transfers near and far from Washington DC, no matter how long or short they are. That’s why you’ll see so many options you can pick and choose from among AYC services. But then it comes to all things transfer related – you’re surely aware that traditional taxi businesses have been endangered by the newcomers, a.k.a ride-sharing apps which are more trendy and much more affordable (but that’s only on a first glance).
Why Does Uber Seem like the Optimal Solution?
Among other things, because transfer that can be arranged without a fuss over an app sounds like a dream, especially if you have to endure a few of those on a daily basis! Just think how many times you’ve wondered how to get from Seminary West to Lower Alexandria, or from your business meeting to an airport? Or what is the best way from DC to Arlington? That’s why transportation companies like us and ride-sharing options like Uber and Lyft are here for. To take the wheel when you don’t have any vehicles available, when you’re not able to drive or when you don’t want to bother yourself with problems on the road.
Uber is super easy to book, but guess what? So is Alexandria Yellow Cab! Check out this booking app! Isn’t it super handy? Just enter your starting point (maybe that’s National Harbor or DCA) and your desired final destination (IAD airport or Parker-Gray for example), pick a date and time – and voila – you have yourself a ride! Besides, if you prefer to make your travel plans over the phone, with another super friendly human answering all questions that may pop up along the way… Uber can’t give you that (for better or worse). But guess who can? Call +1 703-549-2500, and you’ll hear who.
Because Money Matters (DUH)
Let’s not kid ourselves, at the end of the day everybody’s main concern is the well-being of their wallet. What you pay vs. what you’re getting is a pretty essential part of the transportation game, particularly if you need to find a comfortable ride on a daily basis. And although general consensus seems to be that Ubers are on the cheaper side, that’s not always the fact, especially for Washington Metropolitan Area – where the prices for Alexandria taxis nearby and Ubers are pretty much tied.
Moreover, you surely heard about Uber’s tendency to up the charges as the demand grows in particular areas. In such cases, faires may be different (read higher) than those you expected to see. Rest assured, there’s no risk of sudden rate increases with Alexandria Yellow Cab near me. The prices are clearly stated on this page or if you want to get more precise – feel free to put the aforementioned booking widget to good use.
Don’t forget that for Uber services you can pay via app only, so cash payments are out of the question since the whole thing is designed to be a cashless experience. But what if you prefer to pay with good-old dollar bills? With the nearest Alexandria taxi company close to you, at your back and call, that’s always an option!
Security Matters, Too!
If you’re already paying the same or similar amount for the whole shindig, why not opt for the safer option? Sure, if when you opt for a regular Joe to give you a ride, more often than not that ride will be ok. But that’s the most you’re ever going to get out of it. Just ok.
You can’t deny that a professional driver with extensive knowledge of the area will handle your transfers more efficiently and competently right? Their experience behind the wheel is of crucial importance when and if unexpected situations occur. Not to mention the fact that taxi vehicles are regularly checked and maintained, and most importantly insured. Can you say the same about any other ride-sharing option there is? Exactly.
Don’t treat your security and satisfaction as an afterthought and go with the Alexandria taxi service near my location that’s always, better than Uber.
