    DS is arriving at LaGuardia Sunday at 1:30pm. Is anyone else going to KP around that time of day? It would be nice to have someone to split the cost of the cab.

    Our son (Class 2013) is arriving @ LaGuardia @ 12:50 on Airtran flight #368. Where could they meet to share a ride?

    Hoosier,
    Our son and another mid from Dallas will be on the same flight (368). They will be happy to share the cab.

    Beware of dishonest cab drivers

    Just a warning. Our DS used Friendly Cab to La Guardia as recommended by the Texas Parents Association. He rode with another M/S and the cab driver charged them $32 each. They didn't think anything of it but we questioned it when he got home. So I called Friendly Cab the day he went back to check the cost. At the time it was only going to be him so they told me $32. When he arrived he met up with another M/S and they asked the cab driver if it was cheaper for them to share a ride. He told them it was still $32 each. The ironic thing is that it was the same cab driver. After we found out what he was charged (and it was too late) I call Friendly Cab and they told me that my son and the other M/S were ripped off. It is $32 for 1 and should have been $18 each for 2, $15 each for 3, $12 each for 4, and $10 each for 5. The lesson learned is on the next trip, he will quote these prices to the cab driver before ever getting in the cab. :unhappy:

    Great info

    Thanks for the heads-up. I just texted my son to beware. He is on his way to LaGuardia right now.
