What's a good car service from Brooklyn to LaGuardia?
March 19, 2013 6:35 PM   Subscribe

I am sorry to ask such a dumb question, but I have a very early flight from South Park Slope to LaGuardia, and googling car services so far is returning not great results. Is there a car service someone can recommend for an early pick up (our flight is at 5:30 a.m.)?

I travel to JFK about every 4 weeks from Park Slope and Arecibo has always been fine. Just make sure to tell dispatch ahead of time if you plan to use a credit card so they send a driver with a machine.

Call them when you are ready to go and they will be there in 5-7 min.

Response by poster: Doh, dumb phrasing. I need to get from South Park Slope to LGA -- I am not flying from South Park Slope to LGA!

Response by poster: Awesome, looks like Arecibo is the crowd favorite. Thanks MF!

Yep, Arecibo. You might want to call in advance and tell them you'll need a car at [time you want to leave], but maybe that's just a peculiarity of my car service people (who are not Arecibo.)

SuvMe if you ball out. Gypsy cabs work as well

Aricebo for a regular car; skyline for a newer car and more reliable service (they'll call you when they arrive instead if aricebo honking a couple of times).

Eastern, if Arecibo won't answer the phone.

Eastern car service - the base is in South Park slope and they usually know the shortcuts pretty well.

I just used Legend for this trip and they are good. A friend swears by them.

I've used Arecibo and Eastern and they are both good.

For a substantial premium you could probably use Uber; not sure if they have scheduled pickups.

Basically there are plenty of great options and you will not have any problems. Happy flying.

For those who are reading this thread in the future, another option is Castle: 718 499-9333. They've always been on time.
