The driver arrived an hour after I was originally expecting him and told four of us to squeeze into a three person backseat while some girl was sitting in the passenger seat feeding him as he drove. He claimed he was late because he "kept getting sidetracked" and "he had to wait on some food." I would strongly recommend going elsewhere for taxi services. —CPK138

He then proceeded to tell a story about how he free based cocaine once and when he came to reality he realized he had been driving for hours. It is not safe. You would be safer walking, sleeping on the couch or calling a friend. —MegRaye

I apologize for any bad experiences. Efforts have been made to see that bad experiences don’t happen again. I have personally overwhelmingly heard positive comments about Friendly Cab. I wish that those comments were the rule. —BruceHansen


2010-04-29 15:00:26   If I am paying for a cab because I can't drive myself, why the hell would I want a driver who is stoned out of his mind. Because the cab situation sucks so bad in Davis (other than Davis Cab) I have tried to use Friendly Cab a number of times. I would guesstimate that 70% of the times I called I could hear the driver and his friends smoking in the background...they said they were coming and never showed up...they said they would call back but never called...or just didn't answer the phone. SERIOUSLY - Don't use them. —JCL95616 2009-12-13 14:26:33   Do not use this taxi company.

2010-07-18 14:33:17   DO NOT CALL THESE CLOWNS!!!! THEY DO NOT DESERVE TO BE IN BUSINESS, ESPECIALLY IN THESE TIMES WHEN CUSTOMER SERVICE SHOULD MEAN EVERYTHING! I came downstairs and discovered my car had a flat, still had plenty of time to get to work. I called the number and a man told me he would be there to pick me up in 10 to 15 minutes. I called back after 20 minutes and he sounded like he was overdosing on heroin! He literally could not complete a sentence over the phone, I thought this was some joke. I called back 5 times and he did not answer the phone. Finally I got through to someone who appeared to be sober and I told him of my conversation with his driver and he ended picking me up 1 hour after my initial call. He did not charge me for the fare and he didn't have much to say about his driver's behavior. THESE GUYS ARE A COMPLETE JOKE AND DO NOT DESERVE YOUR HARD EARNED TIME OR MONEY!!! I am going to make every effort possible to inform everybody of this company's horrible service! —mikol

We made an appt. to be picked up to go to the airport and these idiots never showed up. Then when we called the guy who answered the phone doesn't know anything about it and acts as if we're bothering him. NICE WAY TO RUN A BUSINESS JACKASSES!!!! —PublicEnemyNumberOne


2010-08-09 12:02:14   I had the pleasure of meeting a Friendly Cap driver as he was picking up a Slurpee at 7-Eleven at the same time I was. He was extremely friendly, and personable. In the future, if I ever find myself in need of a Cap, I will be calling Friendly Cab and insisting on him (though I didn't get his name, I'm sure the dispatcher will be able to identify him by description. Mid 30's to early 40's was driving a/the van) —MasonMurray


2010-09-23 18:05:42   We know this business can be wild and crazy sometimes and just downright unforgiving. But in spite of the harangue and hullaballoo that goes on all around us, we know you send us business and give out our number... regardless of the reasons that you do, thank you! Pete, Bruce M., and Art, we at Village Cab appreciate every call because it keeps us on the move. - David 'Max' Placencia


2010-10-03 02:09:20   By far the worst cab experience I've had in Davis. I'm a fourth year and take more thank one cab a week. Friendly cab has no sense of customer service. I dropped my phone in the car and instead of going to where they dropped me off when I called the driver drove past at nearly 50 MPH on my residential street and failed to see me wave him down. Tracking my phone on mobileme I watched as he drove away then as my phone got stolen on a drop he made afterward. ART, the driver, felt no obligation to slow down even after my very generous tip of 40% on my fare. I will NEVER take this cab again. REST ASSURED. —AlexHandy


2010-10-13 13:51:26   Last night I looked here and saw there were some comments since I commented on 2010-02-26. I'm familiar with the previous comment, because I was the involved driver. It was a hasty, negative and inaccurate comment of which the commenter has been aware for some time, but hasn't updated. It was a busy night and I wasn't aware of him waving at me after he left his phone in the cab and I made a u-turn at much less than "50 mph". A couple of minutes later as I was picking up 3 young ladies who flagged me down, the dispatcher informed me that he called to say that he had left his phone. I asked the ladies if they saw the phone; they didn't. With their permission I drove back out of their way to his drop off spot. Unfortunately there was a miscommunication with the dispatcher that he had called him to tell him that I was back. When I was carrying my next passengers from a call, the man called me directly. I also asked those passengers if they saw the phone and they said they hadn't. When I had driven a short distance from dropping off those passengers, he called me again and told me that the last place that he had tracked his phone from his computer was where I had dropped those passengers. I drove back to him, called the passengers and was pleasantly surprised that they then discovered that they had his phone, having mistaken it for theirs. I drove back and retrieved his phone. You wouldn't know it from his comment, but he did take our cab again. That was my only reward, except for the satisfaction of returning his phone and his good in-person words. —Art


2010-12-20 16:43:05   How nice of you to retort when it has a positive outcome!!! What about my family and I being left on the curb waiting for your shitty cab service that never showed up or had the common courtesy to call.(hint:That's called customer service) You almost cost us to miss our flight. If I see you in 7-11 I might have to knock your inconsiderate ass out. You have the MOST UNPROFESSIONAL SERVICE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO OUT OF BUSINESS —PublicEnemyNumberOne
