American Taxi?

Anyone know if their service runs 24 hours? I will be arriving @ OHare around 11:30pm tomorrow and want a taxi ride to the suburbs. I am thinking they go that late. Any users of American Taxi know? I cannot tell from the website.

you might have a problem

they dont allow ordering a taxi for a pickup at the airport since taxis arent allowed to wait.

What sub you going to I can pick you up since i am 10 mins from the airport

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

There are cabs at O'hare 24 x 7 Bro - If you are that concerned, get a Town Car for $75.00 and call it a day

Yeah, you just walk outside and there will be a cab there. You don't really have to call unless you really like American Taxi and want to wait for them.

City Taxis won't go to the suburbs. American Taxi has cars all over the place. You call into their automated system and they give you a cab number. You look for the cab at a particular gate and you are off to the races. it works great and I use them all the time, but I don't know if they go that late. Ahh well, I'll figure it out.

Tom - thanks for the offer. I live in Arlington Heights. I don't want to put anyone out like that. Not a big deal. I have a lot of options, just prefer American Taxi

Paul - A Taxi can get fined if they are at the airport and refuse to take you to a burb - Same if they refuse a CC payment - The cab stand attendee would LOVE to write them up for you if this happens

True, but at the same time, isn't also true, that city cabs charge double their fare to go to the burbs. It's been a while ago, but I remember getting into a heated discussion about this with a cabbie who took me from Ravenswood to Evanston.

And I like the American Taxi too, their fare from the airport is usually fixed.

A city taxi can and must take you anywhere you want to go, but they will charge you fare and a half if outside city of Chi. They get so made at me when I say Elmhurst, having waited 45 minutes for a fare, and all they will get is $30 bucks from me and they are unable to pickup from my town.

When I am on company money, I take a city cab. When I am on "Mike Money", I call American Taxi with their standard fare. I generally call them as soon as I get my first checked luggage.
