        1. Riding in Toyota Prius Hybrid Taxi is a whole new experience,- some people describe it as being in a space ship.
          others say, its a such a smooth ride or I didn't release this little car is so spacious.
          Still, others say , the experience make them feel better,,,,,
          Whatever your reason might be to ride in this cab
          Call AL's Taxi at 727-490-5100 and request CAB #49 and I will be happy to pick you up and take you on smooth taxi ride

        2. on your banner it says that you will take me to Tampa airport for $25, from where..?

        3. you misunderstood wording on banner, " Taxi to Airport from $25 " doesn't say anything about taxi trip to Tampa Airport from St. Petersburg or anywhere in Pinellas County .
          Also, price says "from $25 " and not for $25, which could mean trip to St. Petersburg / Clearwater International Airport :: eg from Downtown of Saint Pete or Shore Acres,,,,,,
          ....You need to call dispatcher to confirm rates to airport......

          1. How much would cost taxi from Kenneth City to Tampa Airport?
            Do some cab comapmies offer discounted flat rates to airport?
            Can they pick me up from TPA and take me back home to Kenneth City?
            thank you

          2. Legally, cab companies from Pinellas County are not allowed to pick up at TPA Tampa Airport because TPA is located in Hillsborough County in which taxis from St Petersburg / Pinellas County don't have all the necessary credentials to operate.

          3. That is wrong and not true many taxi pinellas company's pick up at Tampa airport. Tpa is regulated and so are some of the bigger taxi company's. Call and ask a dispatcher.

          4. "That is wrong and not true many taxi pinellas company's pick up at Tampa airport. Tpa is regulated and so are some of the bigger taxi company's. Call and ask a dispatcher. "

            IMO, This is total nonsense and is not true, unless they also operate Limo service with Hillsborough County permits like Bats Taxi of St Pete Beach or Yellow cab of Pinellas County

        4. I am not sure if this is right place to ask questions, but here I am wondering around your area on internet and I found your taxi blog.
          I plan to visit Indian Rocks Beach in couple of months and I am kind of worry about my safety and well being,
          After my previous vacations and bad experiences with taxi drivers in different countries, I try to stay vigilant and be prepared for worse.
          Here is a question:
          when using taxi services in tampa bay, should I be on look out for any local taxi scams?
          thank you
          greetings from Switzerland

          1. Just be on look out for cab drivers recommending places where to dine or where to party.- often, they getting kickbacks from those places for bringing new customers.
            Needless to say, your best interest could be far from being on their minds......

        5. Taxi Advertising

          The high presence and visibility of taxis make them a super and profitable medium for advertising. This is even more so in major cities such as Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville, Gainesville and others. The benefits of taxi advertising in Florida far outweigh the costs. There are always taxis on the road; they are highly visible and seen by thousands of people every day. This fact alone makes taxi advertising in Florida a viable proposition. Not only does taxi advertising help to sustain and grow the taxi industry, it certainly offers an above average return on your investment. Taxi adverting is beneficial for most types of businesses, large or small. Geo-targeting is one of the key benefits of taxi advertising. This way you can get your message out to many people in big cities and centers across Florida including Daytona Beach, Lake City, Ocala, Pensacola, Tallahassee and many more.

        6. I just called your office and your dispatcher sounded kind of confused when I asked her "how much would cost taxi from Magnuson Hotel in St petersburg to TPA airport ?", but after about 15 seconds of consternation, she replied " we have $45 flat rate to Tampa Airport, tip included"
          Is that right?
          I didn't want to ask her any other question, because I sensed, that she felt unease (may be) to talk to someone with foreign accent.

          1. Flat rate to airport doesn't include tip, not with any local cab companies in St Petersburg.

        7. you guys must get serious about your business or don't advertise that you are 24/7 taxi company.
          Last night I needed a cab around 4:30 am to take me from St Petersburg to Clearwater and there was no answer on the phone, is your dispatcher sleeping on the job or what?

        8. That is great that you provide all of the intercity rates. One of my fears in taking a taxi while on vacation is being unsure of travel rates. It takes someone who is very committed to run a 24/7 taxi company, many people love hitting the town at night.

        9. Florida Taxi Driver: Text 4 Taxi St Petersburg FL at Discount Taxi:St Petersburg Discount Taxi Company Hits Hi Tech Home Run

          – A breakthrough development in the taxi cab business is taking the St. Petersburg Florida area by storm!

          St Petersburg Discount Taxi

        10. Amazing cab company clean prompt friendly and best of all the most affordable taxi service in the area. ...they are the bes,t call and find out I highly recommend them 100%

          1. You lucky, you had good experience with Discount Taxi, me on other hand got screwed over.
            The driver (Ron I think) said that he is on his way to pick me up but in the end I was picked by other Discount driver, after I called back 50 minutes later.
            Is this a way to run taxi business in St Pete?

        11. What is cheapest taxi cab in St Pete to take me to Orlando airport?

          1. Discount taxi is pretty cheap, - a month ago, I took a cab with them from Treasure Island to Orlando airport and I paid only $185

          2. Express taxi by Supershuttle with their rate at $2.00 a mile is even cheaper than discount taxi,, but they don't offer flat rates and you have to pay whatever is on the meter, so,the trip from treasure Island to Orlando airport would cost you at least $225 in good traffic conditions
