Transportation should not be a hassle, especially when trying to get to an airport or city destination. Taxi cabs and shuttles can help a passenger travel so they don’t have to try and figure out what to do with their own vehicle when flying or going out for the night. Local transportation should be safe and in a clean vehicle, and some may even be luxury rides, depending on the fare you are looking to pay. Most taxi cabs charge by the mile that shows up on a meter inside the car. There are number of terms that everyone should be familiar with so that when they need to do errands or get to the airport, they can be informed about their means of travel.
Fare - This is the cost of the transportation. Often, a tip is given with the fare, but this can depend on the speed they went or whether the cab was clean. Use your discretion.
Chauffer - Often more the role of a luxury car driver, the chauffer happens to be a licensed driver that brings you to your destination.
Shuttle - Though a common misconception, the shuttle is not in fact a taxi cab. Shuttles are forms of public transportation where you share a ride with other passengers until you reach your destinations.
Hail A Cab - Many times, taxis will not be waiting outside where you’re at so you have to hail a cab so they will pull over to get you where you need.
Meter - This is the mean by which the fare and distance traveled are regulated.
Local airports: The Eastern Iowa (CID), Dubuque Regional (DBQ), Waterloo Regional (ALO), Southeast Iowa Regional (BRL)
