Why i take taxis instead of Uber in Jackson Hole Wyoming?
1.Most of taxis in Jackson Hole Wyoming are owner-operated or dispatched by it's owners,that means you deal direct with the person who is interested in high customer service quality so the company get's repeated business from customers like you.
2.No Surge Prices.No meter if is Christmas or New Years Eve,taxi fares in Jackson Hole Stay the same. Taxi fares for the Jackson Hole area are established by the Jackson Hole Airport Board of Directors, and the Jackson Town Council. All taxi companies permitted to operate in the Jackson Hole area are required to charge the same fares per destination. This is why you won’t see meters in any cabs in Jackson Hole. https://228k3g4ee2bb2v3oe82te2b2-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Taxi-Shuttle-Rates-2018.pdf
UBER SURGE PRICES:
Fares for the operation of Taxi’s shall be set by the Town Council to ensure consistent fares to the public. Such fares may be amended by the Town Council at such intervals as deemed appropriate and necessary. For trips originating and/or terminating in the Town of Jackson, the fares shall be: (a) In-Town: twelve dollars ($12.00) maximum fare for one to four (1-4) passengers, plus three dollars ($3.00) per additional passenger. (b) Teton Village: thirty-five dollars ($35.00) maximum fare for one to four (1-4) passengers, plus five dollars ($5.00) per additional passenger. (c) Airport: The fee structure established by the Jackson Hole Airport Board of Directors shall apply for trips originating or terminating at the Jackson Hole Airport. 2. A schedule of fares, charges, and credit card surcharges must be prominently and clearly displayed in a conspicuous place within each Taxi at all times. The rate card shall contain the notation: All fares include applicable Sales Tax and do not include credit card surcharges. 3. Upon request for such information, a passenger shall be informed as to the exact number of minutes of waiting time or an additional drop fee for which a charge is made. 4. The surcharge added to a fare as a consequence of using a credit card to pay the fare shall be equal to, and no more than, the surcharge charged to the ground transportation business by the applicable credit card company. (Ord. 1100 § 1, 2015, Ord. 961 § 1, 2010; Ord. 922 § 1, 2009)
3.No Hidden fees and wrong ways or directions showed on the map. For example: Moose Wilson Rd is closed all winter long and sometimes in the summer because of bear activity on the road.Uber Shows customers estimated price but driver has to go another way and the price is double sometimes see picture bellow
UBER SHOWS WRONG DIRECTIONS:
4.Taxis compared to uber or lyft go anywhere in Wyoming,uber and lyft drivers don't want to go because if there is no cell reception they don't get paid.So trips to Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton National Park or Granite Hot Springs or Pinedale are cancelled by uber and lyft drivers right away.
5.Better experience. Most of taxis in Jackson Hole are so called "black on black car service" luxury suv's like Cadillac Escalade ESV,Chevrolet Suburban or GMC YUkon XL.Why call an uber x and get a Toyota Prius when you can get a full size suv 4X4 with snow tires and driver experienced in snowy conditions
6.Taxi Drivers are required by town of jackson to pass a background check.To be legal in United states and be authorized to work.Uber doesn't do any of that.

Teton Mountain Taxi in Jackson Hole have seen a large request for a taxi during weekdays and weekends at 5AM and 10AM-10:30AM-11:00AM from Teton Village to Jackson Hole Airport.Also at5:00AM 5:30AM and 10:00AM-10:30AM-11:00AM from Town of Jackson to Jackson Hole Airport.
why is that?
1.Flight Schedule ( most of flight arrive and leave Jackson Hole Airport at the same time) 7AM Departures and 12:00Pm Departures and Arrivals see www.jacksonholeairport.com for flight schedule
2.Limited Parking at Jackson Hole Airport. Because the Airport is Located within the boundaries of Grand teton National Park,they have a very limited amount of space.As a result,sometimes parking spaces are hard to come by.It is recommended that you take advantage of taxi service and shuttle service or have someone drop you off at the airport 2 hours ahead of time.
3.Weather Condition. Jackson Hole is one of the best places to ski or snowboard in United States.We get here and average of 350 inches of snow per year,last year was 550 inches so it makes roads difficult and icy.
4.Popularity. Constant articles posted by www.usatoday.com or nytimes.com or forbes.com remind everyone such a beautiful places still exist so more people arrive to Jackson

AIRPORT TAXIS SEEK COMMON GROUND:
JACKSON - Proposed regulations at the Jackson Hole Airport may eliminate a reservation system, forcing passengers to take whatever transportation is available.
It's a move cab owners say could drive them out of business and has sparked a feud between cabbies and the Jackson Hole Airport Board.
