Neil’s Taxi

Neil’s Taxi is a door-to-door demand-response taxi service that primarily serves the Houghton County area but will transport customers virtually anywhere (examples including Marquette; Ann Arbor; and Green Bay, WI).  Neil’s operate two taxi stands located at 201 E. Franklin St. in Hancock, and 56 3rd St. in Laurium.  Each has different hours of operation. Fares vary greatly by origin and destination or, for long distances, per mile. No discounts are offered. Only sedans are used, and vehicles do not offer special accommodations for persons with disabilities, but walkers or wheelchairs can generally be transported, and drivers will help those with limited mobility to get into and out of the car. All services, hours, and rates should be confirmed in advance by calling ahead.
