From Airports to NYU
When arriving at a NYC airport and looking for a taxi, make sure to look for an official taxi stand outside your terminal where you will be given the next available NYC yellow cab. Official drivers do not stand inside the terminal nor ask if you need a cab. The taxi stand dispatcher will help you get a taxi. You can pay a taxi driver with cash or credit/debit card upon arrival. All NYC taxis now have a debit card swipe machine with tip options.
