Seriously poor customer service. Every single driver I've had tries to tell me they charge more for paying with credit card when the website clearly states "no additional fees when paying with card". Also website says they charge extra for 15 minute wait time and they charged me for 10 minutes. Bunch of liars. They will rip you off.
Response from the owner - 2 weeks ago
Hey there, Hannah. I'd like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize for leaving you with a subpar impression of us. The truth is that there is no credit card transaction fee when you reserve a ride with us in advance -- if you choose to pay after your trip, there is a slight fee of $3. I'm very sorry if you feel this wasn't properly communicated. As for the wait time, you're right in that it's based on the hourly rate for a particular vehicle and is charged in 15 minute increments -- you should not have been charged at all if you were waited on for less than that. I'd like nothing more than to make things right, so please feel free to contact us directly at 718-783-6465 so we may discuss this matter further. Thank you for your time. -Johanna, Manager

Honestly, these guys need to do better with their regular customers. I've been taking Arecibo for a while, twice or more a day, despite it's on and off times of lateness. I even send them customers I see at work, for I see the opportunity to help. However, one of the dispatchers just don't seem to understand what customer service is, or he just don't care about the business. He's very unapologetic, and rude. There was a miscommunication of the price code from A to B to C when I took a cab this morning. I was very disappointed about the way it was handled. I hope that they get their pricing code straight, 7 or 100+ at least let the customer know, in stead of changing the price when the car is in motion. In fact, I told him that I was going to stop sending them customers, hence that's the way they treat it's customers, his response was okay, that's least try and reason with your! To the owner, is this how you want your business to be run ????

Thanks for continued support over the years, but I do apologize if you've had any less than stellar experiences during that time. Our customers are always our top priority, and you should never have to feel disrespected at any point in time. Miscommunication can occur on our end, and I apologize for the inconvenience the situation may have caused you. Thank you for sharing our information with your peers -- I assure that it does not go unappreciated. That being said, I'd love for you to give us another opportunity to remind you just how reliable we can be, and I know that you will not be disappointed. -Johanna, Manager

Horrible. I never seem to learn with this place. Every time I call to go to the airport there's a problem. One time they sent me a driver who arrived and said, sorry I don't go to the airport. Like seriously? Today after multiple calls, every time they tell me 5 minutes, 5 minutes. No one showed up after 30 minutes. When I'm traveling I have a schedule and I can't afford ridiculous delays because of a lousy car service. Stay away!

We're sorry for all that confusion, Sahara -- we truly are dedicated to making our passengers' experience as fantastic as possible, and I apologize for the variances in your rides. While we do always attempt to get to our riders as quickly as possible, sometimes that NYC traffic has other plans, and I apologize for the inconvenience it caused you. -Johanna, Manager

Called the night before to reserve a 5AM pickup to Newark airport. Arrived at exactly 5 and got my family and I promptly to the airport. I recommend this car service.
Response from the owner - 5 months ago
Thanks for letting us help get you to the airport, Michelle -- we know traveling can be pretty stressful sometimes, so we love being able to make our part of the journey as painless as possible! -Johanna, Manager

They are so irresponsible. They tell you the taxi is going to be there in 10 minutes and when you call back after the 10 minutes they always say the driver had an accident or something but never on time. I've been using this service for so long and I tried to but a good customer but they have a poor, horrible customer service. They waste people time. I always call my taxi 25 minutes before so they could have time but no they're just irresponsible. So disappointed.

Unfortunately, Jorlenie, accidents are unavoidable. We always strive to get to our riders as quickly as possible, but we're at the mercy of traffic for a large part of the time -- I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Customer service is always our top priority, and we would never want to be accused of wasting people's time. It appears that you might not have always had a chance to see us at our best, and I'd love for you to give us another opportunity to show you what we're made of -- I know you won't be disappointed. Until then, Johanna, Manager

Clean, quick and to the point and far cheaper than a taxi. We use them every time we go out ny to see our family in Brooklyn.

We're thrilled to help make all those reunions happen when you're in Brooklyn, Feliz -- thank you so much for those kind words, and we can't wait to see you again soon! -Johanna, Manager

If you want them to not turn up and just say its your problem when you call them ...use these guys. If you want to actually get picked up and get to where you're going i suggest you dont.
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
I'm sorry to see that you didn't enjoy your experience with us as much as I would have hoped, Stuart -- we're dedicated to prompt service, and it sounds like you may not have seen us on our best day. I'd love for you to give us another opportunity to show you just how great we truly are. -Johanna, Manager

6/15/15- Wanted to celebrate my daughters birthday at Bogota's on 5th Avenue, not far from Arecibo's office. I made dinner reservations at 6:00pm and called to reserve the car at about 4:00pm to pick me up at 5:30 on Dahill Road in Bklyn. Waited outside of the building with my mom. At 5:40, called to see where the car was. I was told it would be right there. At 5:50, no car. I called again and the phone rang around 10 times. No one picked up. By this point I was fuming. Called again at 5:55, phone rang again 10 times and no one picked up. Walked 6 blocks to the nearest car service to get a car. Needless to say I didn't make it to the restaurant in time while my daughter was waiting there for us for half an hour until we finally arrived. This was the first time I used Arecibo. This was the last time.

We're so sorry to hear about your experience with our service, Jose. This doesn't sound like us, and we're so sorry for this miscommunication. We hope you'll give us another chance to prove what we're capable of. -Johanna, Manager
