I planned a two-night trip to Bend from Salem, and pre-purchased my $38 ticket for the Valley Retriever bus, scheduled to depart Salem at 7:55am. Not wanting to leave my car parked in the Amtrak lot for two nights (and the closest bus route more than a mile away) I called Around Towne taxi the afternoon before, with a request to be picked up no later than 7:25am the following morning. The person I spoke with said they would plan to pick me up about 7:15am. 7:15 ... 7:20 ... 7:25 passed. I called to ask “where ARE you?” Person who answered didn’t have me on his pick up schedule, and was too far away to drive to my location and deliver me to the Amtrak station in time. So, I had no choice but to drive and park at Amtrak — or miss the bus and forfeit my ticket money. Needless to say, Around Towne is off my list!

I have had nothing but good service from this company. Makes me wonder if Reggie and Kate are from Yellow Cab? I've never had a driver smoke in the taxi and the times I have needed rides they are prompt and once have even been given a discount at times. BEST taxi company BY FAR.
The worst service ever the guy smoked in his car when i have a 6 month old, he texted and checked his phone the whole time he was driving, he almost crashed twice, and it costed us 29$ when we were quoted 20$ and the van kept breaking down which was not our faults and we should not have had to pay extra for it, and to top it all off the car was full of his clothes and gabage it looked like his personal vehical, when we called to complain the guy said there was nothing he could do about it! so dissapointed in this service, my baby should not have had to sit in smoke the whole way home!!!
