General Info:
Checker Cab Company L.A. was organized as the successor to three cab companies - A&W Cab Company, Inc. Red & White Cab Company, Inc., and Highland Transit, Inc. All companies were owned by a single individual, Mr. Wiley Stilwell, operating Los Angeles County. In 1984, the companies combined to form Checker Cab Company and in 1989, all shares were gained by the Professional Drivers Association (PDA), allowing company taxicab drivers to acquire sole ownership of cab operations. Since the drivers are the shareholders, their stake in the company's welfare is quite high. This means they will do their utmost to maintain our reputation for safe, courteous, and efficient service. Your community is our community. Checker Cab Company is involved in many programs that aid citizens in need, including the Senior Assistance Program, the Taxi Coupon Subsidy Program, and Partners, which provides discounted coupons for taxi service to seniors and citizens with disabilities. We enjoy participation in many other community programs and activities as well. Checker Cab Company is dedicated to protecting the safety of our customers. All Checker vehicles are immaculately maintained and equipped with abundant safety equipment and amenities. Our drivers are trained and tested on all safety guidelines. We have a comprehensive insurance program on all of our vehicles so that in the unlikely event that an accident occurs, you are fully protected. Rest assured we will get you to your destination - SAFELY.

I was demanded more money than the taxi charges and upon resisting I was harassed & threatened to be kicked out in semi-conscious conditions form the cab. Following are the details of taxi.
Taxi Number : 7771
Driver Id: 5101.
I see a huge problem here, that I was being taken advantage for being vulnerable.
1. I was asked to pay $200.0 extra cash and then I was forced to get that money.
2. I was threatened to be dropped in the middle of nowhere form the cab during the trip.



The cabs are clean, smoke free and the drivers are interested in giving good service. There might be a cultural problem because the drivers are from the former USSR and possibly a bit blunt. Every time I have used this company the drivers were careful and did not look to rip me off by taking the " long, short way." I do not let them know I am not a tourist. I will use them again in November when I return to LA


Before I called this company, ...

Before I called this company, I had called two other taxi services. Their services were horrible and rude! One of them yelled at me and argued with me. At the end she hung up because I asked to speak with the manager.

This company sounded okay although I could detect some attitudes but it's tolerated :)


Terrible customer service

Just got off taking to the "LA Checker Cab Co" representative, I was verry dissapointed because the person I spock to was really rude and did not give me the chance to speak, finished up by hanging up on me, without giving me the chance to finish my sentence, He forgets it is because of us, that he has a job, How the hell im I going to trust these people to drive me from one place to another, not with that attitude!
