Car service provide transportation by phone and reservation. In New York City, you cannot call for a taxi, but you can call a car service to arrange a pickup. Taxis can be hailed on the street, while car services are not supposed to pick up fares unless they have been arranged in advance.
You may want to ask for the rate of the trip in advance. Rates are typically exclusive of tolls and gratuity. You can often avoid additional toll charges by asking the driver to take a bridge — there is no toll to take the Manhattan, Brooklyn, Williamsburg, or Queensboro Bridge to or from Manhattan.

You’ll get short notice airport pick ups, and you can also reserve zip cars in different cities.You just have to pay a $25 application fee or a $50 yearly fee.
You also have to follow 6 simple rules to be able to use zipcar. They’re pretty standard like returning on time and keep it clean and so forth. This is a great thing not only for us customers but for society in general. Think about it. ZipCar is revolutionizing the way we think about automobiles. As the strive for urban density continues and people are becoming more cognizant of environmental issues, this car allows us a very good reason to not own our own car.
They also have deals where you can commit to a certain amount of time used per month and you can get discounts on the hourly rate. This is a good deal if you know you have to use a car for a certain amount of time for business or something.
