I'm traveling with my 5 year old for the 1st. Can he travel in a cab without a car seat?
Absolutely. However I would get UBER instead since NY cab drivers drive crazy. UBER drivers are much smoother since they are driving their own car so they care.
Although you could do it I strongly advice against it!!! It is so not safe. There is many accidents with cabs and for a five year old without a proper seat it might become serious. Use Uber and request a car seat instead.
You don't need a car seat but can bring your own if u choose
If u rent a car u will need one
Yes, you can, Lucy. It's absolutely legal to travel with a child seat-aged child without a child seat in a NYC Cab (Uber and Lyft as well...although w/Uber you can request a car seat). These are "for hire" cars and so they are exempt. I have a 3yo and he's taken 100s of rides sans car seat in cabs. Enjoy your time here.
