Cabs on weekends?


We are staying in Newport this weekend at a house that is about a 10 minute drive from where all the restaurants and bars are. I've been told that cabs are hard to come by on the weekend and that the cab companies don't answer calls late at night.

Any suggestions? Has anyone tried the Pedicabs or Amride?

Thank you!

Where exactly are you staying? There aren't many places in newport that are a ten minute drive from downtown. I wouldn't think you'd have a problem getting home at night via cab or pedi cab. Getting a cab to pick you up at the house late at night could be an issue.

Bikes are always a good option here in the summer

Cabs are an absolute issue so be prepared for that. Last I was there for a bachelorette party... Couldn't hail a cab for an hour at closing. Walked for about 20 minutes and finally took a ride from a stranger. This is why I avoid Newport at all costs.
