PLEASE NOTE--While Phillips Academy does not specifically recommend any taxi or limousine services, the companies listed above are used regularly by members of the academy community and according to local authorities have not been the subject of any major complaints. Also, rates vary with each cab company, so please call them directly for current rates.

Keep in mind that many airlines require individuals 14 and younger to be accompanied by an adult to the airport and the gate, and remain in the gate area until the “wheels are up.” (Current PA parents can read the regulations posted on the PA Parent Portal.) Please check with the airport service providers about their chaperone services. If your child ever encounters a problem with a transportation vendor, please report it immediately to the Dean of Students’ Office (978-749-4175), the Business Office (978-749-4105), or the Public Safety Office (978-749-4447).
