DO NOT use this taxi service. They never showed up, never called me to tell me there was a problem and never new that the driver didn't show until I called. I missed my connecting transportation. Be warned. Use another company.

November 2008-- I have used Carl's taxi service regularly and was satisfied with their taxi service, until today. I had just got of the last bus to East Hampton. I got into one of the Carl's taxis. I was waiting for the driver to start driving, but he didn't. He waited to haul other passengers in, who I did not know. I was surprised and shocked. It was late and I was tired. I just wanted to be home. I was the last one to be dropped off. I don't mind shuttle service but thats not what I signed up when I made the reservation. The cab driver did not communicate with me if it were okay to have other passengers in at my expense. On top of that the driver told me to keep my eyes open because he did not know where he's going. The supervisor or dispatcher did not apologize. As a loyal customer of theirs, I am seeking other taxis services. I would not use their services again. My drive in the cab seemed longer than the jitney 3 hour ride.

Pros: You meet other strangers

Cons: Shuttle service for the price of taxi service

I had a bad experience late last summer, when i had called carl's from outside the Palm restraunt and they sent another cab company to pick me up.
But last week I called the again, and learnt that it was possible that the other Cab company - I forget the name.. Lines or lindo , had "intercepted" their radio transmissilons.
My friends all call Carl's and I must say I feel better about them now. The driver was Cute (a lady), with red hair. and I would call them again

Pros: Friendly and good Service.

Cons: I think the diver already has a boyfriend

Carl's Taxi is really reliable which is the most important attribute to a taxi company. They show up when they say they will be there. Instead of telling you they will be there in 10 minutes in the summertime because that is what you want to hear, they give you an honest estimate of how long they will be and if they run later, they CALL YOU, instead of making you call them 8,000 times looking for your taxi and having them lie over and over about a time frame like every other taxi in East Hampton. I found Carl's after another taxi company (green light) made me miss my train on a Sunday and promised to get me to the next one. Instead, they called Carl's last minute to get me and the cab arrived and got me to the train on time. The car was clean and the driver was really nice and didn't look like he had been using illegal substances all day. Since then, I have taken Carl's exclusively when I am in East Hampton and they haven't let me down yet. I make a reservation and they are always at the bus waiting to take me home, or they are in my driveway 5 minutes early and help me with my bags. And I can not say enough about how friendly and nice all of their drivers are. They take the time to talk to you and don't drive like maniacs because they need to rush to another call. And did I mention the cars are CLEAN and I never worry that it is going to break down on the way because it is running well?

Pros: Show up on time, friendly drivers, safe experience

Cons: Sometimes feel rushed when they show up 10 minutes early to pick me up, but they always tell me to take my time.
