I will never use Duffy's again, and for over 5 years I had been using them to get around Albany, NY. One night I hadn't realized I lost my wallet until we were already on the road. Instead of being an understanding human being and showing an iota of human sympathy this cab driver decided to insult me, make racial slurs, and call me things like deadbeat and fare dodger. I admit it was careless of me to loose my wallet, however he also admitted he should have asked for the fare upfront. Instead of talking to me he decided to rant about what a scumbag I was the entire time while he was driving me back to my friends house to look for the wallet. Upon getting to my friends house this driver then decided to just disappear with my phone before I could even come back outside to see him. By far the worst cab experience of my life thanks to this driver. If you do decide to go with Duffy's which I recommend you don't, DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT GET DRIVER 103. If this doesn't persuade you then keep in mind they don't have meters in their cabs either, so whatever they quote you is basically a giant guess. If I could I would give them zero stars.

On October 13, 2013 my 88 yr old mother and I needed a cab to go 7/10s of a mile, taking 2 minutes from our pickup spot at Megabus in Rensselaer to our home. We were charged $22 after I complained about a $24 charge and the driver

They couldn't take me where I wanted to go but the dispatcher was very nice and helpful in finding me a way to get to my destination. I hope I get the opportunity to use them in the future.

The service was terrific. I asked to be picked up and they gave me an approximated time and of course they were there exactly when I needed them. The taxi drivers are also very nice and they can hold a conversation which is very important.

My daughter was at Wal-mart when the store closed. She missed the last bus back to UAlbany. She called for a cab and they told her 15-20 mins. She waited and a car never showed. She called back, and was told the car will be there again

I called on Thursday afternoon to set up a pick up for the next day -Friday - at 5:30pm. Dispatcher said that they wouldn't do scheduled pickups at that time of day. I started to ask what time scheduled pickups were available, but

Called 24 hours in advance to get to the Albany-Rensselaer train station for an 8:05AM train the next morning. Asked them to be there at 7AM, giving roughly an hour for what is normally a 20 minute trip.

I needed to catch a train down to NYC for an interview with Morgan Stanley in Sales & Trading, which quite possibly was the biggest interview of my life to date.

At 7AM, nobody was there. Since it was snowing, I figured no big deal. I called the taxi operator and he told me it would be another 10-15 minutes. Fine. After another 10-15 minutes, I called again wondering if the cab would ever show. THE OPERATOR NEVER EVEN BOTHERED TO PICK UP. Needless to say, by the time I was able to get a friend to drive me, I missed the train by three minutes and had to call in to the recruiter to let her know I would be late.

My experience with Duffy's Taxi was a complete nightmare and I would strongly advise seeking out alternative taxi services elsewhere. Honestly, flat out telling me cabs would not be running due to the inclement weather at 7:00AM when the cab was due would have been much more helpful to me than leading me on...

Pros: None

Cons: Never Showed Up

I have taken this taxi company for years and wouldn't take anyone else. I am saddened that people feel the need to say negative things about companies just because something didn't go their way on one ride. Go Duffy's...YOU are the BEST!!

They falsely advertises Colonie pickups on card with Latham, Colonie-Guilderland, and Albany phone numbers. When I asked to speak to the supervisor, the extremely rude dispatcher claimed to be the night supervisor. The only reason they claim this is because they don't want to get in trouble. Unless the guy was the owner, there is always someone above you. Their cabs often do 50 mph in 30 mph, run red lights and violate right-of-way rules. My suggestion is to either use Yellowcab or Capitaland.
