Oakland Taxi Cab Community


on . Posted in Uncategorised

Green CabsFriendly Cab has a fleet of more than 100 vehicles at our Oakland headquarters. We have introduced a fleet of fifteen new Ford Escape Hybrid-Electric taxis to provide a more luxurious and environmentally-friendly ride for our customers, and we are purchasing more with the eventual goal of converting the entire fleet to hybrids.

Friendly Cab taxis are maintained to the highest standards of quality and safety, in a newly-built garage at our headquarters. Our vehicles are also subject to regular inspection by the City of Oakland. Friendly Cab has a full selection of standard, hybrid-electric, and minivan vehicles to meet all taxi needs.

Our commitment to the Oakland community has spanned three decades. Since 1982, Friendly Cab has provided critical transportation services to hospitals, schools, senior centers, non-profit organizations, and the general public. We are trusted by hospitals to deliver blood to patients in life-threatening circumstances. Friends and family members rely on our taxis to visit loved ones. We work closely with police departments to improve public safety. We annually contribute to many community-serving organizations including churches, hospitals, and schools. With the launch of our improved dispatch system, mobile and online booking options, and more environmentally-friendly taxi vehicles, we look forward to serving the East Bay community even better in the decades to come.
