New York’s premier black car company. By using Dial’s services, you unconditionally agree to and accept

Services are provided by independent contractors affiliated with Dial Car, Inc., a ground transportation cooperative
with offices located at 2104-2106 Avenue X, Brooklyn, New York 11235
(hereinafter referred to at times as “Dial,” “We,” “Us” or “Our”). Our Agreement with You (“You,” “Your” or “Client”)
is conditioned upon Your consent to and acceptance of all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
Any use of the Services by You shall be deemed to constitute Your acceptance of the terms and conditions
set forth in this Agreement.
Client acknowledges that Dial provides fare referral, billing and related services, and that actual transportation services
are provided by independent contractors, none of whom are employees of Dial.
1. Transportation Rates.
You agree to pay the transportation rate set forth in the Dial Car, Inc. Rate Book according to its billing policies
(Including but not limited to waiting time, “no show” charges, disbursements such as tolls and parking, and telephone charges),
plus a Processing Fee charge for each ride taken. You further agree to pay any and all applicable taxes, assessments or
surcharges imposed now or in the future by any governmental or regulatory agency,
including the Black Car Operators Injury Compensation Fund.
Payment for services is to be by check, credit card or electronic payment. Client’s signature below authorizes Dial Car, Inc.
to submit requests for payment to the credit card account(s) designated by client without Client’s signature.
Any requests for billing adjustments must be submitted in writing within 14 days of the date of the invoice.
Client agrees to pay a late fee equal to 10% for all balances which remain unpaid 30 days after the date set forth on an invoice.
If Dial refers Client’s account to collections (including, but not limited to referrals to a collection agency or attorney),
Client agrees that in addition to the charges and late fees which may be due, Client will reimburse Dial for collections costs of
25% of the unpaid balance, including late fees. Dial reserves the right to discontinue service to Clients with past-due balances.
Certain high volume accounts qualify for a volume discount. The discounted rates are set forth in a separate rate book issued to qualified accounts.
The discount will be lost, and standard rates as set forth in the Dial Car, Inc. Rate Book shall apply, if the Client’s account is past-due, and/or of the account volume drops below the minimum usage threshold established for the account.
The discount will be reinstated on future charges only when Client’s balance is paid in full for all invoices, and/or
when volume meets the minimum threshold.
4. Use and Collection of Account Information; Privacy.
Client authorizes Dial to verify all information provided in connection with Client’s application for service though
a credit reporting agency.
All information provided to Dial in connection with Client’s application shall be kept strictly confidential, securely maintained,
5. Vouchers; Account Restrictions.
Client must notify Dial, in writing, in the event any of Client’s vouchers or VIP cards are misplaced, lost or stolen, or client no longer
wishes for any VIP cardholder to use the account. On “unrestricted” accounts, Dial does not verify the users.
Client is responsible for any unauthorized use of services if written notice is not received and acknowledged by Dial.
In the event you believe the security of your account has been compromised, or have any questions or disputes concerning charges to your account, you agree to notify Us as soon as possible.
6. Service Area; Affiliates.
Dial’s affiliated independent drivers are licensed by the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission to provide transportation services throughout
the New York Metropolitan area. In the event Client requests that Dial arrange ground transportation services in areas out of its service
area through the use of affiliates, Client understands that Dial does not own, control or exert any influence over the affiliate and that
Dial is booking the reservation and working with the affiliate as an accommodation for Client.
7. Damages; Cleaning Charges.
In the event You cause damage to the Driver’s vehicle or soil the vehicle (e.g. spilled food or drink, unlawful smoking, vomit, etc.),
You agree that we may impose a reasonable charge on behalf of the Driver to cover the documented cost of vehicle repairs and/or cleaning
(“Damages Charge”). The Damages Charge typically ranges from $100-$200, and will be remitted to the Driver.
The imposition of the Damages Charge is intended to function as a procedure for efficiently resolving any dispute between You and the Driver
resulting from damage or soiling caused to the Driver’s vehicle, however in the event the cost of remediating the damage or soiling exceeds
the Damages Charge, the Driver may pursue recovery of these additional costs from You.
All Drivers are independent vehicle owners and/or operators, and procure insurance in accordance with local applicable regulations.
As with any automobile insurance policy, additional insurance terms, limitations, and exclusions apply.
9. Personal Items.
