You learn from my suffering. I got to sleep at 2:15 AM, and had an alarm set for 4 AM. I could have EASILY cleaned my car and driven to the airport. Instead I looked for Uber (there were none), then called Arlington Red Top Cab at 4:25. This haughty bitch got on the phone and told me I was on the list. She asked me if I wanted one right now, I said 10 minutes would be better. I called back at 4:45 and this smug asshole got on the line, LIED TO ME by saying I'd CALLED THREE TIMES, and they canceled my original 4:25 booking and re-booked it at 4:35. And they were still trying to find a cab for me. He said the lady at 4:25 was "consulting" me. CONSULTING ME? I told her I wanted a cab. I waited out in the cold for 40 minutes, then at 5:20, started trying to clean the ice off my car with my hands. It was too much to do in five minutes. I resigned myself to missing my 6:45 flight. I had no options left. I LIVE 4 MILES FROM THE AIRPORT. The bastards sent me a text message at 5:37 and canceled my 4:35 booking. I feel like I did everything I should have done. I have a call into the airport to tell them I'm missing the flight and am on a 30-minute callback list. For whatever good that will do me.
Three times this past year I've decided to skip driving myself to the airport/train station and use a car service. Friends recommended Uber, but instead I called a friend of a friend who has his own little business: Ben Keller of Bavarian Limousine. Ben drives a nicely appointed BMW 750Li. He is punctual, courteous, and a very good driver, and provides bottled water, and coffee and snacks if you request it. I can't say if his prices are reasonable since I have no basis for comparison. But I can tell you this: "very good" is high praise from me. As a former professional security/high threat driving instructor, motorsports instructor, and amateur racing driver, I pretty much think all drivers seriously suck and should have their licenses revoked*. The fact that I trust someone enough to pay him to let me sit in the back seat while he drives should speak volumes**. *hyperbole **not hyperbole Ben Keller Bavarian Limosine facebook.com/BavLimo 202-630-8725 firstname.lastname@example.org Elizabeth Miller
I'd recommend "Chariots for Hire". We rented one of their limo buses and the service / overall experience was top notch (they were early, had the bus filled with ice, etc). If you wanted to go with the limo vs. the limo bus, it appears they have some stretch escalades or one of the hummer limos that would fit up to 20. David Hofman
