Every facility has their own pros and cons but did you ever think which service is the most suitable to meet your purpose. Let’s set some pre-determined criteria like availability, time, urgency, convenience and comfort, based on which it can be possible to evaluate and compare the suitability some general transport services especially between car rental or taxi service and bus, train, and shuttle service.
Availability: It is considered as one of the most important factors while deciding your suitable transport services. Although bus, shuttles, trains are usually maintained the largest transportation networks in any metropolitan city, and they’re much suitable for transferring a lot of people at a time. However, these services have the major drawbacks in terms of availability as they maintain their pre-scheduled time and route. So, you can’t able to find one of them whenever you need. On the other hand, you can call a taxi or hire a private car from any car rental service providers any time.
Time: It is the most important factor while you ride on any vehicle. You must be in tight time schedule while reaching your office or university or for attending any social occasions. No other transport services except taxi and private car rental service can guarantee you to reach your destination on time. Particularly, private rental cars or limousines are well equipped with real-time GPS system that can help the drivers to get the advance idea about traffic congestion ahead. So they can avoid such routes and take you through much convenient way to reach your destination.
Urgency: Taxi and car rental service providers are always able to give customized services to their customers and so they can understand your need. While placing a booking for private car service, there is an option to mention your urgency level so that the service provider will treat your booking accordingly. And for the case of taxi service, you can request the driver to take you to your destination within a certain deadline. They may ask for some extra charges for your customized requirement, but they’re capable to deliver quality service. On the other hand, bus or trains are providing service to many people and so they’re not in such position to attend any customized service request.
Comfort: It is another important factor that needs to take into consideration while using any general transport services. Car rental services usually maintain their vehicle fleet with latest car models that equipped with latest real-time GPS facility, comfortable seats, air conditioning system and some other modern facilities. All these facilities are can’t be avail in the bus, shuttles, and trains and not even in taxi service. It’s one of the main reasons why car rental services usually charge a little bit thigh fair compare to other services.
Taxi and car rental services are comparatively expensive than other general transport services due to above reasons, but they’re the services that can provide the most quality transfer services. Among the car rental and taxi service, private rental car is more expensive though, but if you’re using individual company’s service on a regular basis, it is possible to obtain a special discount rate that can equal the service charge as the taxi fare.
