It was no surprise when GPS maker TomTom’s 2015 annual survey of traffic congestion found that driving in LA is the worst in the USA, and getting even tougher. While there is no single magic bullet, natives and visitors alike are increasingly finding an LA Taxi to be a pleasant, affordable and smart choice.
Riding in an LA Cab lets you turn delay time into productive time, whether it’s Facetiming with a friend, writing a business proposal or reading the latest news. You arrive at your destination rested and ready to go, without the stress and exhaustion that comes from driving in Los Angeles. With no car to park, you receive door-to-door service, with no time lost in a long walk to or from the parking place. You avoid the often unpleasant feel of a parking garage, the costs of parking, and the risk of dings and scratches on your own car that so often happen in parking lots.
If you’re traveling with friends, too, there’s only one fare to pay, making a taxi an even smarter and more affordable choice. Taking a taxi or sharing one with friends also eliminates the need for a designated driver at a dinner or party; everyone can enjoy themselves, knowing that a reliable, professional driver will be there for you at the end of the evening, no matter how late.
Taxi companies are making it even easier than ever to connect with them. LA City Cab, which has been in business since 2001, can be reached through our Taxi Cab App, a free app available through Google Play and Apple Store. LA City Cab offers the best of both worlds — the convenience of ordering a ride online (or by phone, 24/7), with the safety and security of knowing that every driver is licensed by the LA Department of Transportation (LADOT). This means that your driver has passed an extensive background check. Every taxi is also fully insured and is regularly inspected for safety, which means that in the unlikely event of a problem, LADOT will take your complaint and work to resolve it.
Taking a taxi will not eliminate LA’s congestion, although drivers are up-to-date on the latest construction delays and will take alternate routes to save you time. That’s one more advantage that along with convenience, safety and affordability make an LA Taxi your smart transportation choice for business or pleasure.
