As an executive assistant, arranging ground transportation for your employer can be quite a task. Regardless if you are new to the ground transportation industry or not, we understand this can be daunting. No need to worry though, that is why we are here!

Ground transportation offers a few options that vary by location. Bigger cities have more options than smaller ones, and typically these are your options:

  • Taxi
  • Rideshare 
  • Car Service


A taxi offers a great option in more metropolitan areas, as long as your employer does not require a more high-end service. Cost efficient, taxis provide the basic service of getting you from Point A to Point B. If your employer is flying into a more remote area, be sure to call ahead of time to verify there is a taxi service available.


An extremely popular option today, rideshares offer a low-cost transport option in metropolitan areas. In larger cities, there are typically plenty of drivers available to get your employer where they need to be. Some things to keep in mind when relying on this service:

  1. Pricing is only sometimes dependable or cheap. If your employer happens to be traveling during surge hours, you could see substantial price jumps. If you need a fixed ride cost it is better to go with a car service or a taxi, whose pricing model doesn’t fluctuate around surges at certain hours.
  2. Make sure you verify that rideshare entities operate in the city your boss is traveling to. For example, there are certain cities where Uber and Lyft are banned. Crazy, right? So if your boss is going to a new city, be sure to make sure your desired rideshare is operating there. No executive assistant wants a call at 4 AM because their boss needs ground transport and they cannot catch an Uber.
  3. Remember that Uber and Lyft drivers can cancel a ride at any time and sometimes even in big Metropolitan areas are not available quickly, or at all. If your boss has an extremely strict schedule during a certain trip you may want to go with a more dependable option.

Car Service

Last on our list but not least, is car service. Car service is a great option for your less price-sensitive employers. Although this option can be costly, it has a lot of features that many executive assistants and their employers value. This ground transportation option is significantly more dependable, safe, efficient, and luxurious than other options. For this reason, many executive travelers lean towards these types of services.

Every city will have different options, so it’s important to research to find what’s best for your boss (and you). If you are booking ground transportation and are feeling unsure about which option is right for you, feel free to contact us! OnPoint is always happy to help you with your ground transportation needs whether it’s with us or not.

Finding the right ground transportation for your traveler is essential, and sometimes it’s not a clear-cut choice. In this article, we will break down how to decide which option is best for you and your employer.

  1. First and foremost you must ascertain what options are available in the area you will be traveling. If it is kind of remote you might not have a lot of options. Some cities don’t allow rideshare vendors like Uber or Lyft so that won’t be an option etc. So first figure out what is available.

  2. Determine the priorities of your employer. Everyone you work for is going to be slightly different and have slightly different priorities. These priorities will help you determine which car service is right for you. Does your boss require luxury? Is price point the biggest issue? Do they need dependability? Or is it safety that they are most concerned about? Whatever it is, take it to the chart below which details the strengths and weaknesses of each model.

Determine your own priorities. What do you want as an executive assistant want from a car service? Don’t forget about you! You matter too. Maybe it’s dependability you crave because you want to know the job will get done. Maybe it’s safety because you are concerned about the health and well-being of your traveler. Maybe your first priority is the ease of use because you need to be able to book quickly and efficiently. Whatever it is you need as an executive assistant, remember to take that into account.
