New York City taxi services with car seats and boosters

by Shelly Rivoli

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.

Kidmoto is also a great service in NYC. They offer car seats that are pre-installed and there is option for multi car seats as well. You might check the website http://www.kidmoto.taxi for more information or check online reviews of the company before making a decision to choose them for your next airport transfer.

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.
