Seven years ago, Rachel Carvalho started out as a taxi driver in the great city of Providence. She was surprised by the number of visitors that commented about never having been in a taxi with a female driver before.

Fortunately, Rhode Island has numerous female taxi and limo drivers. As a driver, she truly enjoys meeting people from all over the world and experiencing the wonderful sights of New England. In 2011, she opened Rachel’s Big City Transportation.┬áHer goal from the beginning was to give customers reliable transportation service for a reasonable price.

The majority of her rides are to and from the Providence Airport. In addition, she offers a service to Logan Airport in Boston and JFK International Airport in New York. Sometimes on the weekends, there are rides to concerts, sporting events, casinos and weddings.

Overall, she is truly grateful for the thousands of passengers that have trusted and relied on Rachel’s for their transportation needs.
