The cab did not come even after an hour, only after I called there and asked when it would finally come. It came after 20 minutes. There was no proper communication with me as the driver(s) couldn't even speak English. Great price, but wouldn't want to drive it again.

Driver did a great job, but very poor lack of coordination on pick up time in the AM. I arrived 30 minutes early to find the driver waiting. Some basic communication ahead of time would have been helpful.
