Requesting a Ride
Technology has made requesting a cab so much easier. We take requests by phone, text, internet reservations and our Smart Phone booking applications.
Our customers can even speak directly to the driver. Our phone system will accept your call and automatically transfer it to your driver's cell phone without disclosing your number. The number that will appear for his caller ID is our dispatch center.
If you are a repeat customer, our system can track up to five typical locations you wish to travel to or from. This speeds up the reservation process so specifics on location do not need to be repeatedly shared.
Use the appropriate app for your phone to download our Booking App today!
PLEASE CALL (703) 491-2222.
