Subject: [CF] Taking cab for 1st time -- advice?
Just a couple questions: how far ahead do you
call in advance when you want a ride? And how much do you tip the
cab driver? I just need to get a clue before I do this. Thanks in
advance for suggestions.
I would call and make a reservation around 4PM. You could call and confirm it about an hour in advance. Eventually you'll find out which companies have the most reliable service. The one I call where I live has never forgotten me and has never been late. They've been early, but waited pretty patiently. I have had trouble when I've wanted to go somewhere at night and didn't call several hours in advance. In those cases, there were events going on downtown and I couldn't get a cab to come uptown without a reservation.

- Thanks again for your replies, everyone. I was totally clueless that
some of you rode that late in the evening. I guess the reason why I
called cycling at that time "risky" was because there were a couple
bars/taverns in the vicinity and I worry about contending with the
Getting around is still a bit of a struggle for me. Although I've
shown that my driving skills aren't very good (I found driving even
in moderate city traffic really stressful and nerve-wracking), I
would like to think that I can still do a lot on my own despite my
limitations. It's getting better, and I think I can push my
boundaries some more.
