Taxi from Duboce to the airport

We are a family of 5 with luggage and are flying out of SFO tomorrow at 1pm , we are staying in a house in Waller st Duboce. Are we able to call a taxi service to come to the house to take us to the airport and if so any suggestions on which one and a phone number perhaps? Or if we cannot do this what is our next best option of getting to the airport? We did manage to get a taxi big enough when we arrived to take us from the airport so am hoping this can work in reverse. Thanks

De Soto Cab and Luxor are the ones I've used the most over the years when given a choice. Just let them know you need a mini van cab.

You should have gotten a business card from the cabbie who got you there. There are fewer and fewer large vehicles being used as cabs these days as the city's taxi fleet is required to convert over to Hybrid vehicles. The Ford Escape has become very popular for cabs but I don't think it's going to fit 5 people and a lot of luggage.

You can call a cab company (Luxor, Yellow, City Wide Dispatch) a day or so in advance and ask to make a reservation for a mini-van. But I've heard more and more lately that taxi's haven't been great about keeping these appointments. But perhaps someone else has a difference experience.

I would book a Private Van for $75. gosfovan.com/san_francisco_airport_shuttle

It'll probably work out with a taxi, but a limo could also be another option (tell them how many people). It's likely to be more money than a taxi, but may be worth a little more for reliability.

We've been in one situation where the taxi we ordered the day before didn't show up when it said (and we gave it some significant extra time). I don't know if it ever showed up, but that kind of situation is pretty stressful. I'm not sure how often it happens.

I would follow White Dahlia's advice. And for future reference, when traveling with luggage and children, it is also, as she said, a good idea to get the business card of the person who delivered you to your destination in the first place.

We did this in Seattle last month when we had rented an apartment, and it was seamless. He showed up right on time to get us back to the airport.

The short answer is yes, you can order a cab and request a van-taxi.

Depending on time of day, it should be $50-55.
