Checker Cab in the Kansas City metropolitan area is one of the best cab services I have used. All of their drivers are polite and helpful. On many occasions I have had groceries and they helped me to my front door with them.
Another thing I love about Checker Cab taxi service is the ease of paying with a credit or debit card. They have a TV screen attached to the back seat along with a credit card machine. You can add in the tip and get a receipt. This is great and one of the main reasons I continue to use their services.
In addition, every driver calls you as soon as they are assigned to your trip. This is extremely helpful, so you are not just waiting and wonder when they will be there to pick you up. Plus, the driver will let you know how far out they are and an ETA.
They even have this great service of ordering a pink cab for a girl’s night out or any other event. Checker Cab donates proceeds to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help fight breast cancer. I love this idea a lot and hope more cab companies would do the same.
There is only one complaint, which is the cab vehicles tend to be slightly dirty. This has been the case in about half of the cabs that have picked me up. In all, I feel they are a great taxi service and have strongly recommended them to friends, as I will continue to do.
