If you are a Skidmore student and need to get picked up at the Albany Airport, please email the following information to email@example.com: 1) Student name and mobile phone number, 2) Flight number, date and scheduled arrival time. The dispatcher will check the calendar and confirm your pickup. Please be prepared to share the ride with another student or two as most students return within a narrow window of time on Sunday afternoon and evening. If you already have a scheduled pickup, feel free to call us to confirm if you haven’t heard from us by Saturday afternoon.
When you arrive at the Albany Airport, please call us at 518-698-4122 after you retrieve your baggage to let the dispatcher know that you are ready to get picked up. We will then notify you as to the status of the cab and any other students sharing the ride. Pickups occur outside of baggage claim–just look for one of our cars against the curb–they all say “Hybrid Cab” on the side. Flights arriving within 15 minutes of each other will generally be shared. The cost for a shared ride is only $30 per student, or if you are the only student getting picked up the regular student rate of $50 will apply ($45 + $5 for flight tracking and waiting as per our Rates page). Please make an appointment only if you are certain you will need the ride, as last minute cancellations jeopardize our drivers’ pay.
