I agree with that previous poster regarding the drivers. They are terrible.
I was just driving home and approaching a fork in the road and was alongside one of their cabs. Apparently, they needed to make the side of the fork I was in. So he sensibly speeds up, almost clips me while cutting in front of me, and then slams down on his breaks. It's 1 am. There were almost no other cars on the road and he could easily have just pulled into my lane behind me. But this is the mean str...view moreeets of Somerville. This psycho absolutely must dangerously cut me off. How else can he show that he is the professional driver to all the amateur drivers of the general public? Certainly not by knowing the roads well enough to know to get in the correct lane without cutting in at the last possible second.
Sure, I honked and flashed my high beams. So a few blocks later, he pulls into the next lane and slows down until he's next to me and make some crybaby motions with his hands. How is any of this reasonable for someone who drives for a living?
I know I wasn't using them this time but I will never use them again. I don't care if I have to walk in freezing weather instead. However, I'll still call them for cab rides. They'll just be for rides at remote locations that I'm not actually at. I'll specifically try to request your cab number, turdpusher.view less
I called for a Green Cab & Yellow Cab of Somerville at 2:45Pm today and was told that I would be able to meet the taxi in the parking lot adjacent to 66-70 Union Square (Precinct Restaurant). I waited for over a half an hour and decided to return to my office to call your company again to ask where it was. This is after standing right at the quadrangle in front of the parking lot!
I then was told the taxi would be there immediately no more than in five minutes. I returned t...view moreo the parking lot in front of 66-70 Union Square only to find your taxi cab operator allowing someone else in the cab, yelling out something to me that was inaudible as he made a U-turn in the parking lot and driving off.
I gave your office a call again (617-628-0600) and was told that the cab that was there just now, was mine! There was no apology, no explanation offered. I had an event at Tufts University for the inauguration of the president that I missed due to your company's inability to respond and/or let me know that there was going to be a problem AND a rude driver.
I have never been treated this way before, and I travel and use taxis regularly. This is no way to treat your customers!

A friend introduced me to Green and Yellow Cab when I arrived in Boston back in 1986, and they are the only cab company I use. I now travel several times each month for business, and I can count on their drivers to be reliably on time, know where they are going, and not try to play games with the fare. There is another major cab company located just down the street from me in Cambridge, but I've learned the hard way that it pays to stick with Green & Yellow Cab. Now that the...view morey've added on-line reservations, it's even more convenient to book ahead for my travel needs. Well done, guys!view less
I have used this company for over 20 years. They have never let me down. I travel to the airport every other week for business and also use them to go into town. Drivers are courteous and knowledgeable. I recommend them to all my business associates and friends. I have never had anyone complain that they were anything but efficient on time and honest. They also have hybrid cars. I use their website to book all my airport reservations. Love it.
I've lived in Medford for three years and I travel at least once a week, so I constantly need pickups for the airport. For my first couple of years here I tried different services, but had a mixed record of timeliness. I finally started using these folks and they are consistently on-time. I have no idea what the other review is talking about. These guys have always been professional and the key is they are always on time-- or they call me well ahead of time to let me know they are runn...view moreing late. They're my trusted source for trips to the airport.view less
This cab company is horrible the drivers are a bunch of psychopaths. they must need to fail some kind of evaluation in order to get their jobs. i have had several bad experiences with this company. one time the driver was clearly on meth or some kind of upper and was staring at me (in the back seat) and yelling about how much he hates nigerians. i was very worried about my safety because i think it is very important to look out the front window while a person is operating a moving vehi...view morecle. dont use this company for any reason. the cabs typically smell like stir fried excerment too.view less
Reliable service which is not always a given with taxi's. I use them several times a month for business trips. I go to the website and reserve my taxi. Drivers always arrive promptly or before my pick up time and wait for me. Great for early morning pick up too as they are open 24 hours a day. Occasionally I have used them on weekends when I don't want to drive into Boston. They will even pick me up in Boston on my return home. Taxi's are clean and most drivers are great.

I frequently use this service to go to the airport. They have a great reservation system. I go right onto Yellow Pages and make my reservation on line. The drivers are usually very polite and on time. I have used car services in the past and they are not reliable. Half the time the phone numbers are disconnected. I have lived in the Somerville/Cambridge most of my life and find Green and Yellow to be the best!! I recently lost my phone in one of their taxi's and they went out o...view moref their way to return it to me. Thank God. It was my Blackberry with my whole life in it.
