Default Suggestions for Taxi Service from Redford to Comerica on Opening Day...

Was thinking about taking a taxi down to the game so I could enjoy the day a little more. I've checked out yellow pages and the popular ones like ABC but they all have really bad reviews..


Any Suggestions?
Thanks

I know there are a few bars and restaurants in the area that offer shuttle buses. Sure you may have to drive to get to/from the bar, but at least that should be less of a headache than driving downtown and enjoying any festivities there. Maybe one of those is an option?

We've used the shuttle bus at the Royal Oak Brewery a few times and that always worked out well. I think Fishbones in Southfield used to also have a shuttle but not sure anymore.

There is a desinated driver service that will drive you and your vehicle home. I have never used it, but I have a friend that used it at least 2 times a month. He said it was cheaper than a DUI. Google that shit.

The designate is just that. We get it for work parties to reduce liabilities.

Whelp, ended up getting a ride from Metro Transport. A Van that holds 14 adults for $180 round trip. Should be fun! Thanks for the Ideas.
