First, I am a 6 year driver for another company and asking anyone for money up front is not allowed. The driver can refuse a fair if they feel unsafe, however. Sad as it is most fare run outs and armed/unarmed robberies are done by African Americans (95%). I am not a racist but when you get burned by the same color fire over and over you get wary. I am lucky to be alive to tell the truth but you can say that about any job if you think about it. So before African Americans get upset at cab drivers for the lessons of experience you do need to admit they have reason to be scared and you know it better than white people. I have been awarded honorary brother status and know you know. Its just the way it is but its getting better. More white are stealing from cab drivers than ever before lol. Whites need to admit the system is unfair and that is the reason so many have turned to theft. Its changing for all of us and in time we will be fine. Just be understanding on both sides. No Cab driver knows every route and no company can get to every job. The best you can do is get a cab and safe driver in reasonable time and in real life nobody is perfect. Again, this is how the business works. Ups and downs are hard to supply drivers for. You can't have 300 cabs on call all the time and some times the work is to much for the fleet on the street. As rare as that is its what you hear most when it happens. What you don't hear is when there are to many cabs and no jobs. That,s hundreds of tables that need food that day and won't get it. Think about that and compare it to your occasional late cab. We really try to avoid to many cabs. Its one of the last jobs where the boss cares. Many accomplished people have been cab drivers including, movie stars, surgeons, lawyers, police, millionaires and more. You never know who your driver is so don''t assume they are dumb losers. I make on average $700.00 a week bring home. I do better than many professionals. My best week was $1800.00 cash. Say what you will about the job but its good money, your outside driving around, and your the boss. It some ways its a dream job. I meet all kinds of people including famous people. I had dinner with MLB players, drinks with NHL coaches, shopping with NFL stars, quiet intimate chats with movie stars, and parties with rock and rap legends and it happens more often than you think. I delivered two children and saved a policeman's life. People have died in my cab and people have tried murder in my cab. It would make a great reality show, oh wait it is already. So next time your upset with a cab driver remember the doctor who had you wait 2 hours at your last check up appointment and treat them the same. The doctor has a way easier way to go.

The driver picked me up at the Rosemont Blue Line Stop, and didn't know how to get to my job. He had to ask me for directions, and on the way he asked me if my job was hiring. I gave him a bunch of information from non-for-profits, to my own company's career center. I am never rude to anyone. So, we get to my job, and I give him a $20. To be fair I create a standard rate for all places I go frequently, so if the driver gets me there faster he gets more of a tip, than someone who went the long way. He didn't even ask me if I wanted change back. Just looked at me like, ok, go now. I SOON realized I had left my phone, many cab drivers will turn around and drop it off...So I called the cab company, no one said they'd found it. So, I called the phone repeatedly, over and over, and he finally answered. Somehow, it took more time for him to come back than leave, on an EMPTY HIGHWAY. During this time no one is really driving between my job and the station, and it costed MORE than getting there. Was he driving circles racking up the tab? Sure does seem that way. Then when I gave him another $20 he tried to give me some sad face to let him keep the change. Next time I take one of these taxis I am changing my rate to $18 until I make the $40 back.

Rosemont Taxi has a bad driver. I filed a complaint with the village. This driver asked me whether I had money or not when I entered the cab. The driver had no license info on display. He then went on to tell me that he asks all black and Hispanic pax this question, because of fare run outs that he has had. This was so 1960 that the incident embarressed the person who took the complaint at the village. By the way his cab no is 127.

They are a great company. Their rates are fair, they are always fast, efficient and personable. I have used them many times when I don't feel like taking the subway at midnight. You will see them parked outside the hotels, Rosemont Theater and Allstate Arena (where I usually pick them up). But you can call ahead to reserve them too. I find their drivers are some of the best - not scary like other cab companies! Consider using them for this area.
