is there no local charter service available in the area? even a 14 seater van would be a good solution – you can rent it for a flat fee, and it would be muuuuch cheaper than multiple taxis….

My first suggestion would be to ask the hotels if they have shuttles for their guest, most places do and it should be at no additional charge.  That is what we had our hotel do.  80 of our 100 guest were from out of town.  Then we hired a limo from 10-12 to get people back at the end of the night.  Hope this helps = )

We were in the same predicament…Wedding out of town for everyone in an area with very few options.  We rented two vans and the realty company that we worked with actually hired the drivers. It worked out great! Vans were available all night and everyone could get home safely.

I was in a similar situation (with taxis) for a work event. In that situation, there was one person put in charge who roughly organized people into groups of 4. She didn’t actually have to do much, just make sure everyone had a group and called the cab company to let them know how many we needed. We expensed the fare so that was not an issue but you could ask a responsible person to make sure everyone has a group and provide the cash for the fare. If you could predict the demand ahead of time, IÄm sure you could get a cvompany to let you pre pay the cabs but you would not want o order more than necessary. In my experience, when people wanted to leave, they just needed to fill a cab so 2 people could not leave until they found 4 more and it worked fine.
