Getting Around

Taxis & Ride-Sharing Services

Taxis are metered, with flagfall charges of around $3 to start, plus $2 to $3 per mile. They charge extra for waiting and handling baggage, and drivers expect a 10% to 15% tip. Taxis cruise the busiest areas in large cities; otherwise, it's easiest to phone and order one.

Ridesharing companies such as Uber (www.uber.com) and Lyft (www.lyft.com) have seen a recent surge in popularity as an alternative to taxis.
