Best Cab Company for Cheapskates - 2012
The slew of sedans making up Sunrise Cab's fleet isn't exactly what you'd call pristine. In fact, shabby and squalid would be better words to use when describing the tattered, threadbare interiors of the former cop cars and secondhand hoopties that were purchased from local surplus auctions by this mom-and-pop cab company and transformed into taxis. The practical upshot of such low-fi livery vehicles, however, is that Sunrise Cab can offer substantially cheaper rates than its snazzier competitors. Flag drops, for instance, are only $2.50, and the per-mile charge is a mere $1.50. Drivers — who are not only prompt but also ultra-friendly — tend to stick around the Phoenix area but will journey to other parts of the Valley for those who schedule pickups in advance. It allows you to get to and from your favorite nightspots with plenty of dough leftover for drinks.
