hoboken I talked to the car service and they're going to send a Ford Flex instead - Thanks for all your advice!

Thanks!
If it's just you but it either in the back seat crosswise or lay the front seat back as much as you can then thread it throufpght the passenger window so it sets on the front bad back dashboard.

binarypie When I took a town car from Vancouver to Whistler (rental car was closed due to flight delays and the taxi looked sketchy as fuck. no busses at 3am).

The guy was able to stick my wife's 156 bag on the center console for us.

My bag 165 ended up sticking out of the back of the trunk and we just used a bungie cord to keep the trunk/bag in place. Worked like a charm.

sheepstealer Duct tape and bungee cords. Done.

GreyDragon Nope. Won't fit.
I've tried it a couple of times.
The driver put my bag in the back seat (I was travelling alone to the airport).
Gotta get a minivan if you have people in the back seat.

timmytimmytimmy It will probably fit in the trunk horizontally provided your board isn't too long. I can fit two snowboard bags into a NYC yellow taxi (the Crown Victoria sedan) without a problem provided I "squish" the ends of the bag where its just empty space (my board is 154cm). The Lincoln towncars are pretty spacious too.

I'm guessing there may be a passenger or two in the back seat. It would be a mighty uncomfortable ride that way

Liliana According to the dimensions here, the trunk seems to have about 64" available (162.5cm). It may work if you tilt it slightly, but if it's off by a tiny amount, it will be a bummer

unfortunately, town car back seats don't fold down
