Yellow Cab Company Loves Colorado Springs! For over eight decades, Yellow Cab Company has been your hometown ride and a cornerstone business in Colorado Springs; a vital part of the community, supporting the city and its residents as more than just a ride, but an advocate in the city’s development, sustainability and growth by participating in community events showcasing its lifestyle, and all it represents
We partner with McDivitt Law Firm on New Year’s Eve, Cinco De Mayo, St. Patrick’s Day, and Halloween to assist in the fight against drunk driving. Since 2007, McDivitt has helped keep nearly 5,000 drunken drivers off the road. We are proud to be a team player for such a wonderful cause.
Here at Yellow Cab, we believe in doing our part to help keep the community safe and protected, which is why we partnered with the Colorado Springs Police Department in March of 2010 to launch the Cabs on Patrol (COP) program. Our drivers log about 7 million miles each year and with that much time on the road, our drivers are always looking out for the citizens of this community. With the COP program, drivers work directly with dispatch and the CSPD to report suspicious activity. In the past, cab drivers in Colorado Springs have helped locate robbery suspects, stopped vehicle theft, and alerted law enforcement officers to unruly behavior. In addition to partnering on the COP program, we are also proud to provide corporate sponsorship to the annual Colorado Springs Police Department’s Medal of Valor Luncheon.
We also support the Baby’s First Ride program through Memorial Hospital; where first-time parents can bring their newborns home free of charge.
This is a key addition to the services offered by Yellow Cab in helping serve the community. Yellow Cab recently became a proud member of the Veolia Transportation On Demand team and is pleased to be able to offer these services to the community. “Yellow Cab Company of Colorado Springs is committed to providing first-rate taxicab service to its passengers”, said Fred Hair, General Manager. “The Mobility Plus vehicle will help us extend that commitment to those facing transportation and accessibility challenges”.
