I'd appreciate any advice on car services or taxis to and from PDX. I have a cab company that can take them from Hillsboro to the airport, but not them pickup because of fees of some sort. Therefore I would need a different cab company to pick them up and return them to Hillsboro. Travel dates are a Thursday and the following Sunday in October, with one passenger blind and in need of assistance walking.

I would like to use the same cab company to minimize confusion for the "oldsters" traveling. Is a car service a better idea? Our company sometimes provides drivers/cars and they are very convenient with a greeter and luggage help. I've looked through Yelp and online rating, but some of the limos seem pretty dodgy or inconsistent and the review "dated." Since my passengers are 85+ I am trying to minimize confusion and potential problems with cab noshows. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Honestly the easiest way to do that is to have them follow the ground transportation signs at the airport and have them take the next available towncar or cab, there is always several waiting and you don't have to worry about the guy being a no show.

Only cars with the airport medallion can wait at the airport.

There are several small independent cabs in Hillsboro/Beaverton. Many of them advertise flat rates to the airport. Most of the Portland Companies do not like going out that far, even if you schedule them to do so the odds are they will not make the pick up.

Hillsboro Airporter looks to be fairly reliable. My Company uses Northwest Towncar pretty exclusively, but I have never had occasion to deal with them directly.
