When you need to be somewhere on time, don't call Yellow Cab! I needed to go to the airport from Lakeway to catch a flight. I booked a taxi online 24 hours in advance and got a confirmation number. The time came for the taxi to arrive but no taxi. Ten minutes later, I phoned Yellow Cab and was told, "there are no drivers in your area at the moment." What? Why did I bother booking 24 hours in advance? I scrambled to find a friend to drive me. 35 minutes late, a driver called to tell me he was nearby and I told him I was already on my way.

When you need to be somewhere on time, don't bother calling Yellow Cab!


Never reliable

After calling for a pick-up we were told it would be a 5-10 minute wait. After about 15 minutes and no taxi we called again. We ended up calling 6 times until we hailed another taxi company (Austin Cab). Yellow Cab has never been reliable for us. No matter how far in advance we call and no matter how nice we are, we haven't been treated with courtesy. It's okay if they are too busy, but it would have been nice if they were honest. I'm going to just start making appointments randomly but have no intention of using them. Even if it works one time, it'll be worth it.


Thanks to North Austin Taxi

First of all I am not from here, I am just visiting I called yellow cab a 7:45am to request a cab to the airport at 8:30 am , I thought 45 minutes is enough time to have a cab here, at 8:45 am no body shows up!!!! No calls nothing! I started to worry I called yellow back they said " WE DO CAN NOT ASSURE THAT CAB WOULD BE AT YOUR PLACE, MY JOB IS TO PUT YOUR INFO ON DISPATCH PC SYSTEM, HOPPiNG A DRIVER WOULD ACCEPT IT AND COME TO GET YOU! " oooooooooh seriously so. I am at the drivers's Mercy !,,,,,!, yellow cab is nothing but a bunch idiots!! Running a shiiiity biz! She hanged up on me! I went to yellow book to look for a faster alternative taxi cab savor, 9:00 am already and my flight at 10:25 am, I find North Austin Taxi Service Because they were very busy a shift manager in person answered my phone, In a very professional way and told me the taxi would be there in 5-10 minutes, I said you sure, he said positive, you just have to cancel your previous order with yellow cab if you want us to carry on with this order, I said please, 9 minutes later I get a call from yellow cab telling me your cab is here. At the same time North Austin Taxi driver calling, both are down stars now! I ignored yellow cab and just walked street to a white cab marked North Austin Services, they saved my trip otherwise my next flight would have been 6 hours after the missed one, Thanks a lot to all North Austin team they are the BEST!!!!!!!! %300/%100 I would add stars if I could, I never tipped a driver $ 30 in my entire life, the most I usually give out is $8 bucks, I believe these people deserve a thumbs up, yellowcab took them 2:05 minutes to get to me, theses folks took them less than 10 minutes plus their system is mess up,!


Round Rock Yellow Cab has the worst customer service I've had to deal with in a long time. The dispatchers are rude, and 9 times out of 10, send their cabs to the wrong location. They're lucky they don't really have any compitition in this neck of Austin.

I work at a hotel as a front desk clerk. A cab driver from Yellow arrived at 5:AM to pick up a fare; the cab driver informed me that he was here to pick up "Dan", and wanted me to let "Dan" know that he was here. I informed the cab driver that the hotel is sold out tonight, and that if a guest called him from his mobile phone, how would the front desk know about the transaction. The cab driver became irate, and was verbally abusive towards me, and relentlessly yelling at me, for about 1/2 hour. At about 5:30, a gentlemen arrived stating that he called for a cab, and that his name was "RODNEY!!!!!!!". And the two left together. After they left, I contacted the cab company, and no one wanted to be bothered, or cared. Just a heads up from someone IN THE SERVICE INDUSTRY. Do everything in your power, to not use this cab company.


want something better?

As gas keeps going up so are the prices of private transportation. I have a reasonable remedy.... hire someone with a high economy car. I offer a clean ride in a 2008 Kia Rio, the windows are well tinted to shade you from all UV that the sun may have to offer on a hot Texas day! I also have GPS, plus the fact that i am from Austin so I am very familiar with the area. I'm available for reservation/ pick you up from selected locations at any time of the day (after 11pm or before 7am requires reservation) otherwise call me as needed and i will be there in a timely manner. I have pleanty of room for luggage and can comfortably sit two people, plus offer reliabilty and a piece of mind in these times of needing to save a few bucks. Contact me at natf8785@gmail.com or 512-650-7141

Dishonest and Corrupt

TERRIBLE taxi company with DISHONEST Drivers. The drivers will take advantage of you every chance they can to increase their fares. This dishonesty goes deeper into the company as I left a bag in the cab, called the lost and found 7 times and never received a call back. This was after I waited the absurd waiting period of 5 business days. I can only assume that the lost and found sells your lost items on ebay and if they don't sell in 5 business day you may be luck enough to get a call. I even stopped by the office twice during the lost an found hours and never met the person in charge of the lost and found, which was always in some office that no one could get into.

They don't pay taxes

Imagine the tax dollars they could be contributing to the economy. When I lived in Austin, I drove a cab and paid taxes on what I earned, but 90% of cab drivers do not pay them. there are also alot of cab drivers from other countries whose visa's are expired.

Fraudulent accounting practices

I took a cab from downtown recently, and upon arriving home, I asked the driver to add over 20% to the total. Not only did he not say thank you, but the next morning, I saw three separate charges (all different totals) on my card. I immediately called the company to clear it up, and they promised to refund two of those charges (they said the driver was getting ""duplicate charge messages"", imagine that). This morning, I see a 4th charge on the card for a completely different amount. These charges are now totaling more than $220, and I have had to cancel my credit card and dispute the them, because I cannot get through to their accountant. I looked on the BBB site and noticed they have an ""F"" rating, as they've had at least 4 other complaints this past year, one of which was ignored. I would venture to say this happens more often than the ratings would indicate, as not everyone follows through. I will definitely avoid using this company in the future.
