New Orleans is a WONDERFUL City but unfortunately many of the services needed for it to operate and compete with the cities vision for tourism and entrepreneurship are woefully inadequate.
Even more many of the services are geared towards tourist and negate the value of local customer service and the local dollar contribution to the city.
New Orleans cab and taxi companies are hurting the economy of the entire city and its inhabitants and more importantly – themselves and their driver’s bottom line.
I called the day before fir device and when they did nit show up on time I called the office to verify. Was told that system was down but will send one and be there in 5 min. 8 min later the driver called to let ne know he is on his way and after asking him where he was found out he was 10 min away and after I told him that he hung up on me. After an hour they sent a driver to pick me up. YOU GOT TO BE JOKING! I told the driver since my stop was to the airport.

I am a New Yorker. I pretty much understand how sometimes city centers are crowded. pretty much of life I spent on travelling. and this is not the first time I am in a great city of New Orleans. But this case of terrible service by taxi company of Checker Cab, #725 with the very rude and unproffesional driver made me not to use Checker Cab's service anymore. The thing is when I asked the driver to slow down, he started with cursing at me and telling me about the conditions of his stay in this country. He said that he is a legal person in this country and he is about to do whatever he wants with his car. From his sayings I understood that he became the resident of new orleans recently, and from his manner of speaking that was somehow empowering him while talking with customers. I would like say that I have nothing against foreign people, it is just the behaviour of that driver made me think that Checker Cab company is not able to hire proper employees who can provide acceptable service
