Uber & Lyft ride sharing is one of the most popular ways for guests to get around. There are very reliable and readily available from here. Average wait time is about 5 minutes or less (Friday & Saturday nights a little longer sometimes). We suggest downloading either app on your phone – if you are not familiar feel free to ask a staff member for help. Their rates are reasonable, though watch out for surge pricing during busy periods.

Calling a Taxi (for right away): If you want a taxi immediately, call American United . They are usually here within 5-10 minutes. Ideally call from your cell phone. They will ask for the pick up address (2144 N. Leavitt St) and where you are going.
If they say 5-20 minutes the cab will usually be here within 5-10 minutes. If they say 10-30 minutes it could be as much as 45 minutes. They will give you an automated call when the cab is here (or within a few blocks).
Friday & Saturday nights around dinner time are the busiest times of the week.
Ordering a cab (for a later time): You can order a cab for 1-24 hours out.
