How does my kid identify you or your driver if we choose not to meet you?
Our passenger vans are wrapped vehicles and our SUV’s are either wrapped or magnetics are on the side of the door. If your child is in elementary, each school has a procedure to gather the children in the gym or cafeteria to be released in the bus/daycare lines. It is your responsibility to notify the elementary school that your child is riding with Taxi Mom. A picture of the driver and their assigned vehicle will be in the parent portal for you to view.
Can I ride only one or two days?
Yes, we offer daily rates. As long as we have available seats, we can help. Note: consistent daily riders will be charged whether they ride or not due to seat restrictions.
Do you charge for holidays or unforeseen events?
Yes, we charge for the Thanksgiving break and Spring break . In the event we are shut down abrubtly due to an unforeseen event, we will draft or invoice up to 4 weeks. The first two weeks will be 100% of your weekly rate the the last two weeks will be 50% of your weekly rate. **Note: this applies to our consistent daily riders.
Why do you charge for the holidays or unforeseen events if my kid is not riding?
As a small business owner, it is our duty to provide excellent service to you and your family as well as promote loyalty within our organization. Our employees are given paid vacations for their reliability and hard work. This is a part of our policy, please read when registering online.
