Lucy from Studio City, California asked

Car seats

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.

I believe not, I have traveled with my 1 year old boy in ShuttleWizard they have car seats and it's just like a cab (they take you anywhere and come for you)

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.

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.
