New York City taxi services with car seats and boosters

Visiting New York with your baby or toddler and need a taxi cab with a car seat? You’re not alone. While you may not need a car seat except for your ride to and from the airport, or for a particular outing one day of your stay in Manhattan, you don’t have to choose between lugging the car seat from home or using no car seat at all when you ride in a taxi or airport shuttle.

All three of these private car hire services provide airport transportation from JFK, Newark, and La Guardia to Manhattan with car seats or safety boosters by request.

NYC Limousine

Kid Car New York

Crestwood Car & Limousine Service

At time of writing, the least expensive JFK Airport option of these—if you can all fit with your baggage—is the Lincoln Town Car ($55) from Crestwood Car & Limousine Service with the requested car seat ($15) for a total of $70 + tolls & tip.

All three of these services offer a minivan or van option at a higher rate ranging from $120 up to $160, with each car seat or booster costing an extra $15 to $20. Worth it? Safety aside, how much would you pay to skip that taxi line with your toddler after surviving a red-eye from the West Coast?

These companies can also be used for point-to-point trips in town or hired by the hour for sightseeing as well.

    This is the greatest limo company. Always on time, attentive and professional both in picking up at my home and at the airport.

  2. Central Alberta Limousines

    This is a great service if you travel with your baby because normal taxis do not have car-seats, boosters for your kids.

    I used Legends Limousine out of Brooklyn in November 2012 with my 18-month-old daughter – $67 including car seat, tolls and tip, and they were fantastic. I would highly recommend them.

    Can anyone advise if there is a limo or van that can handle 2 carseats? We have 1 year old twins and will be arriving into JFK with 4 adults. Is there a van/limo service that can handle 4 adults and 2 child car seats? Help!!

    This is a good idea. Taxis and other transportation services should have safety measures for all. It's good to know that they are doing safety precautions for babies.
