Yellow Taxi Edmonton Alberta hmmm where do I start lol
Yellow taxi service is one of the leading companies but does it make them the best?? No! Although i know alot of yellow drivers I feel sorry for them to have to tell the truth so others may beware of the sometimes safe and unprofessional service. I have been taking cabs for years as I like many do not drive and I know for a fact more than once they have been late even when pre-ordered to arrive at a certain time for me to be to the airport. Not to mention as a single woman certain drivers are hoping for you to be intoxicated after the club so they may take advantage of you financially and sometimes SEXUALLY. which totally goes against al regualtions and a safe taxi service. When you make compalints the dispatcher are sometimes defensive, inexpierienced or just having a bad day and can very rude and unhelpful and may hang up on you or shout /inturrupt you during a complaint the worst part is sometimes thier manager or superviser on duty acts in the same manner depending on who is working. So as a cab user you may want to think twice before calling them to complain no matter how wrong you have been done. Sometimes it's better to call the police or your lawyer first. IF not they may not deal with you accordingly! I know for a fact of someone who is considering suing them for giving out her personal home phone number to a cab driver which resulted in him threatening her life and calling her explicit and deragatory racial comments even though he was of another race himself. These drivers can get very rough and rude soemtimes as soon as you enter the vehicle. "Thier Turf" When you get in there they feel sometimes as if you have invaded thier space, now your on thier territory and they can do whatever they please. I know a cab driver who will offer you drugs or even ask you if you have drugs for heavens sakes. I have been in a cab when we went through a drive through where the dirver was so whacked out he asked the lady at the window if she had drugs!???? And that happened 2 times believe it or not and once the lady was my 8 yr old sons friend like oh my goodness wooow! Not to mention the cab drivers who chose to use thier cell phones to call thier friend for directions rather than calling dispatch for the proper directions which will result in you getting lost and being late not to mention paying more than you should. What about the huge amount of drivers yellow has that will not take the route you would like and will be upset if you suggest anything at all! Or when you almost get in a huge accident cause the dirver is so old he can hardly see and your scared for your life? I suggest if you have a problem you post it. I suggest you do not fall asleep in one of these cabs. I suggest you do not fight with thier dispatch or supervisors, when they are rude to you or hang up and just call your lawyer if its a situation such as assualt or even abuse verbally from a yellow driver. I suggest you do not send one of your teenagers home in one of these cabs. I suggest when the driver refuses to call dispatch you get out of the cab immediatluy and if he says he is going to call the police let him. I suggest if you loose your cellphone and they do not return it without an additional payment on top of the cab fee you call the police and the company for that is blackmail its your property not thiers they must turn it in and not keep it. Yes all this can happen to you it has happened to me and many people i know with yellow cab. Yes they have good drivers but that ratio is small and the ones who are bad are worse and someitmes ruder than you can ever imagine and if your a woman someitmes not safe. I know when my friend worked at mcdonalds they were so rough to her she had to get out of the cab and mcdonalds had to call them and tell them they would not stand for it and would end thier account with yellow cab and thats a business account so if they will do it to them they will do it to you i suggest even getting the number of a dirver you like and is kind to you for that is rare and they deserve the money and its because of the foolishness some of the good drivers are forced into going on thier own or giving out thier private numbers cause they would rather deal with the customer properly than the dispatch and thats bad when your own drivers are working against you YELLOW CAB SO GET WITH IT! Edmonton is a nice city and we dont deserve that garbage it used to be safe and friendly so whats the deal!

Yeah.. it can be scary for a women to take a cab alone. I'm from Toronto and there have been a few times where I was kinda scared.
Comment by cabcritic on Nov 06, 2007
is rough but honestly when i lived there on chestnut and dundas it was like heaven to me always a cab to be found and they cut deals as long as you have money upfront i try to be respectful cause i know its a hard job but man i tell you girlfriend --- these guys are mean over here in edmonton and yellow cab is a big no no! They are upset cause they dont have money and its slow and then they want to get rough and rude like you should be tipping for them ruining your whole day lol but one thing both cities have in common is the foreign cabbies like to play that "oh let me call my friend for directions" deal and get you super lost but in toronto its worse cause it gets so expensive. like in the hundreds :((

Wow, you either have really high self-confidence or are extremely full of yourself. I'm chosing the later. Does thinking that everyone thinks of you as a sex object make your complaint seem valid? Seeing as you know so many cab drivers why do you bother to phone a cab company at all? You offer no proof for all the things you say you know for a "fact" so why should you be believed? Maybe you were asked for cash up front and didn't have it and when you called in to "complain" you got even madder when told that a driver has a right to ask. Does having intolerant opinions about others based on their age,race,job, make you look better to yourself? You do seem to know a lot of the "bad" things that a cab company can do. Is this because you have had these things happen to you? I'm sure they didn't just pick you out of the phone book. But, I guess you wouldn't stop to think that you might have brought some of these problems on yourself. Instead you paint that entire company with the same brush. And because you have only yourself to blame all you can think of is rude and offesive comments designed to make you appear as the injured party.

aNN IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME THEN GIVE THEM A CALL!!! PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!! THATS YOUR CHOICE! I am aloud to state my opionion and talk about me expierinces whether i am hot or not and that has nothing to do with the FACT THAT THIS DID HAPPEN TO ME AND I'M ALOUD TO SAY IT DID AND IF IM WRONG I DARE THEM TO CONFRONT ME AND ILL GIVE UP NAMES AND DRIVERS and find other people to validate the Story which is why i came on this site was just to do that. Now your welcome to go post an excellent review about them if you like but thats if you like and this is my profile and it's what i like. Has any one evEr even hit on you in a sexual way? have you been in a locked room with them? well thats what it is like being in one of the wrong cabs after coming from a club and if your upset that i am telling people to look out for thier safety then your probably down for that sort of activity in your life but im not! P.S. My sister now is dispatch for capital taxi so i know my rights and I am within them! ANNE A.K.A YELLOW CAB DRIVER LOL
