Update:: as of September 19, 2011, today, by making a single call to the Yolo County Clerk-Recorder's Office to request info regarding<br> + the necessity of obtaining a Yolo County Business License, one would discover that businesses are not in need of this license if they already have a business license on file for the incorporated City in which they are based. Business that have no base in an incorporated city within the County &amp; who routinely do business in or solicit business in the Unincorporated Areas of the County need to obtain this Yolo County Business License from the Planning &amp; Public Works Office.<br> + <br> + ****However, without trying to make it seem as if this business is inadequately licensed, no ordinance has been pointed out that restricts a properly licensed transportation business from picking up customers within its base of operations (Davis) and dropping them off in areas of Yolo County. Neither has an ordinance or law been pointed out that requires any transportation company from picking up in Yolo County and returning back to the City where its license is in effect. It's actually a fact that Village Cab drivers and patrons drive out to Pacific Star Gardens on County Road 99 &amp; Capay Valley Organic Farms on Highway 16 in Capay Valley and purchase Wonderful Heirloom Tomatoes and even BRING them BACK into the City of Davis for consumption!! The idea of loving local products and services and patronizing them as much as possible is imbued in Village Cab which is properly licensed and insured to drop off within 200 miles of Davis, its base of operations.

I was running completely late for my train out of town for the weekend and I was freaking out. I called several other cab companies, and none of them could pick me up or take a credit card, and Village Cab completely saved me. Even though the driver was already taking people down to the train station during peak Davis traffic, he came all the way back and got me to the train station just in time for me to get on my train. Without him, I would've missed my train and completely thrown off all my plans. From now on, Village Cab will be the first taxi service I call, every time! --["Users/HannahReff"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2006-06-19 01:53:32'' [[nbsp]] Village Cab is awesome! Like Hannah, I was also running late. I had to catch the plane in an hour, and I just missed the bus because of heavy luggage. I told Village Cab it was an emergency and the driver got here in record time. He helped carry my luggage and got to the terminal as soon as possible. If it weren't for Village Cab I would need to find an inn to stay. If anyone asks, I will most definitely recommend Village Cab.

As in, I hand him a 10 for a 6 dollar ride (from the Segundo Dorms to the Amtrak station), and he does not give me change unless I ask for it. --["Users/eda"]<br> + It is customary when presenting a ten dollar bill to pay for a ride (that's for less than the ten dollars) to say how much you would like back as change - Usually as you are handing the bill to the driver. However, sometimes communication gets crossed, missed, or not sent or received at all. It is unfortunate, EDA, that the exchange with the driver didn't go smoothly. Village Cab does thank you for your openness and your frankness. We also appreciate you calling our taxi service and hope we can meet your transportation needs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + * It is customary for the driver to return the change to the customer unless instructed otherwise. This was not a case of poor communication, it was a case of the driver acting very poorly. The driver should be instructed on how to correctly conduct a transaction. marty<br> + * Are you at all familiar with a process called "tipping"? As in waiters, pizza delivery people, and taxi drivers customarily recieve tips. If you overpay slightly and do not request change, it is reasonable for a taxi driver to assume you are providing a small gratuity. --["Users/JodyNorthup"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-05-21 20:05:26'' [[nbsp]] since when does village cab rock a camry? --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> + * Where are you seeing a Camry?

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve. We will make every effort to insure all of our patrons are served as safely and in as timely a manner as is expected. Please feel free to ask for me, David Placencia, if there is ever a comment of praise or comment of instruction or advice you would like to give. You can reach me at 530.753.8294. I will personally work to address any question of honesty or integrity that arises. It helps sometimes to first air these points out person to person rather than on an open stage; there can be details about an exchange that go unrevealed when there is no room allowed for personal dialog and understanding. Eda, we are sorry that your change was not given before you asked and we hope you can feel assured that this incident will make us a better business. Thank You again for your openness without which we could not improve.<br> + --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-05-28 17:16:39'' [[nbsp]] I called the night before to arrange for an early morning pickup. The driver was right on time, and cheerfully helped me with my very heavy luggage. Clean car, nice driver, and on time. Can't ask for more than that! --["Users/mphpnj"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-06-02 17:51:04'' [[nbsp]] Village Cab is the best! I have always had amazing service with very courteous drivers- I will continue to use you and recommend you guy's to all my friends- p.s. I usually tell them (the driver) to keep the change - especially on a short ride :) --["Users/marabella"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-08-27 12:02:40'' [[nbsp]] I've been calling Village Cab for three years and they've always been prompt, professional and helpful. They have taken me to work, to run errands, to Sac, the airport, to the doctor, to the vet, to Dixon, Woodland, etc. They know the area inside out, the rates are fair, and it's comforting to know they are metered and insured (I ASKED!). --["Users/missfoyle"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-02-24 01:52:16'' [[nbsp]] In the past two weeks, I called Village Cab twice and asked them to pick-up a family member in a nearby town and take that person to another area town. Both times they were very courteous and understanding of the situation; I was called when they picked up the person and again when they arrived at the destination. I live over 150 miles away and was able to use my credit card for the fare. Village Cab is the best and I certainly recommend them to anyone who wants superior service in and around Davis. Thank you Village Cab for your kindness.<br> + --["Users/NancyMc"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-06-05 09:53:00'' [[nbsp]] I've been calling Village Cab for almost a year now, and they've never failed me once. From reservations to last-minute rides they've always been extremely reliable, helpful, and courteous. What's more, their excellent service remains consistent among the several drivers that they have. Village Cab definite gets my vote for the best cab service in town, and I'll be recommending it to anyone who asks about it in the future. --["Users/AnthonyLam"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-11-26 23:46:19'' [[nbsp]] To All Of Our Drivers, Customers, and Friends: Thank You!

All the other drivers at Village are friendly and provide really good service. --["Users/JCL95616"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-04-29 15:46:16'' [[nbsp]] I called them to order a cab for someone who had flown in to University Airport last weekend. The driver (over the phone) asked where the person needed to go, so I told him, and he said he would be here in 15 minutes. I hung up and the person went out to wait for the cab. Five minutes later the driver called me back and asked if the person still needed a ride. I found this extremely odd seeing as I had just talked to him 5 minutes prior, asking for him to come. --["Users/JenniferCook"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-04-30 05:00:33'' [[nbsp]] Hi Jennifer, sorry for the confusion. That day during your Cal Aggie Flyer's Open House<br> + we had 2 drivers on schedule. After taking a reservation, I noticed your call (shows up as 'CalAggieFlyers' on our call list) showed up as a missed call on my cellphone (our taxi-line was forwarded to the cell phone system at the time since we were out on the road). I called my backup real quick to check if he answered your call, but I got his voicemail. So I called you back just to make sure you were being served not realizing the other driver had answered your forwarded call, quoted you an ETA and was quickly on his way!<br> + ...turned out my call back to you was unnecessary...forgive me for being overzealous.<br> + Jennifer thank you for calling us from the University Airport, we always appreciate the chance to serve you! --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-04-30 13:48:47'' [[nbsp]] Thanks for the explanation, David.

What a difference!!! --["Users/thelmaleegross"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-09-23 15:12:52'' [[nbsp]] Dear Ms. Gross, we always strive to return each and every phone call for service, but in your case we dropped the ball. I apologize for this lapse in our attention to your<br> + call. We are glad that you were able to reach Checker Cab for service; it is a daily reality that both our companies refer to one another to help cover demands for service; believe me, none of us are perfect. One of the central reasons I choose to do business in Davis is that when it comes right down to it, we all lean on each other when time and business demands require us to and back each other to help provide transportation for those who live in and visit our community. We are very hard working and earnest in this endeavor. As manager and operator of Village Cab I have personally, over the past 5-6 years, covered calls for EVERY cab company in Davis, and will continue to do so. I have made some mistakes and have helped cover others mistakes. We are all indepedent cab companies but are united in our basic sense of goodwill and determination to serve. Some of us do some things much better than others on any given day. So, I am still very proud to work for Village Cab and at the same time I apologize for not getting back to you in regards to your trip back from the Big Apple. I am hopeful that time &amp; circumstance will allow us the opportunity to serve you in the future and give us the chance to show you our true willingness to provide the absolute best transportation experience. I would like to say in closing, that it is quite unfortunate that so much of the commentary in this wiki-type medium can tend to lend itself toward polarizing one service against or for another; I say this in response to your comment, Ms. Gross, on the Checker wiki regarding the fact that Davis Cab referred you to us when you called; as mentioned above, it is important that folks who read these comments in relation to using local cab services in our wonderful city of Davis, realize that we in reality work very much in TANDEM to help each other fulfill our<br> + promises to customers. Beleive it or not, many good things we all do never make it to these pages, and it may<br> + go against the idea of competitive advantage to also admit that we local cabs co-operate much more than many might want to beleive or expect,<br> + but it is above all important to have a realistic point of view before casting dispersion.<br> + Sincerely Yours, David 'Max' Placencia<br> + <br> + we can.<br> + <br> + --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-09-23 17:42:30'' [[nbsp]] We can be contacted by email at 753taxi@gmail.com &amp; villagecabdavis@gmail.com<br> + Our toll free # is : 877-530-8294.

Sorry for the misconception. There's been a<br> + small but gradual increase in declined or max-out credit cards, and we drivers have started offering<br> + more often to stop at an ATM but in most cases only if it is not more than a few blocks out of the<br> + way.

First, at about midnight 3 weeks ago while a fare was being dropped off outside her window, a couple of people talking loudly passed her window and attracted her attention. She looked out and watched as a cab driver and a woman were talking. The woman was fumbling through her open purse (she appeared to the observer to be drunk) and they were seemingly discussing payment for the ride. She says she heard part but not all of their conversation. A comment from the lady was heard, what amounted to ' go ahead and do whatever you want ! ' Subsequently a cabin light went dark, seemingly turned out by the driver. Second, the observer states she saw the cab driver touch the woman's chest. After a moment the woman turned the light on, smiled, gathered her purse and left the cab. Finally, the observer believed she saw that the driver looked like he felt guilty about what just transpired. No specific day or place of occurrence was given for this story, and Village Cab is inquiring into the matter. Village Cab believes its crucial the public knows Village Cab does not condone any kind of inappropriate touch-for-fare or any other payment/trade for fare except cash or credit card (credit card for payments at $7 or greater) and takes an observation like this seriously. Although the entire truth isn't known about the exchange, Village Cab is sensitive to making sure our female ridership, as well as male ridership, is transported safely. Village Cab is taking preemptive steps to place cameras in our cabs before the fiscal year is out to help aid in security for our ridership as well as our drivers. We appreciate you taking the time to read this. Any comments or questions in regard to this or any other topic of concern please feel free to email villagecabdavis@gmail.com 24 hours a day. We do not have all the specifics at this time and our observer has not as yet furnished them, but we appreciate that she had taken the time to tell us what she observed, and are most urgently concerned and<br> + conducting an inquiry. Sincerely, --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + <br> + <br> + ---------<br> + If anyone ever needs a ride, remember that Village cab always accepts reservations, 24 hours a day.

I was running completely late for my train out of town for the weekend and I was freaking out. I called several other cab companies, and none of them could pick me up or take a credit card, and Village Cab completely saved me. Even though the driver was already taking people down to the train station during peak Davis traffic, he came all the way back and got me to the train station just in time for me to get on my train. Without him, I would've missed my train and completely thrown off all my plans. From now on, Village Cab will be the first taxi service I call, every time! --["Users/HannahReff"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-06-19 01:53:32'' [[nbsp]] Village Cab is awesome! Like Hannah, I was also running late. I had to catch the plane in an hour, and I just missed the bus because of heavy luggage. I told Village Cab it was an emergency and the driver got here in record time. He helped carry my luggage and got to the terminal as soon as possible. If it weren't for Village Cab I would need to find an inn to stay. If anyone asks, I will most definitely recommend Village Cab.

As in, I hand him a 10 for a 6 dollar ride (from the Segundo Dorms to the Amtrak station), and he does not give me change unless I ask for it. --["Users/eda"]<br> - It is customary when presenting a ten dollar bill to pay for a ride (that's for less than the ten dollars) to say how much you would like back as change - Usually as you are handing the bill to the driver. However, sometimes communication gets crossed, missed, or not sent or received at all. It is unfortunate, EDA, that the exchange with the driver didn't go smoothly. Village Cab does thank you for your openness and your frankness. We also appreciate you calling our taxi service and hope we can meet your transportation needs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - * It is customary for the driver to return the change to the customer unless instructed otherwise. This was not a case of poor communication, it was a case of the driver acting very poorly. The driver should be instructed on how to correctly conduct a transaction. marty<br> - * Are you at all familiar with a process called "tipping"? As in waiters, pizza delivery people, and taxi drivers customarily recieve tips. If you overpay slightly and do not request change, it is reasonable for a taxi driver to assume you are providing a small gratuity. --["Users/JodyNorthup"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-21 20:05:26'' [[nbsp]] since when does village cab rock a camry? --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> - * Where are you seeing a Camry?

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve. We will make every effort to insure all of our patrons are served as safely and in as timely a manner as is expected. Please feel free to ask for me, David Placencia, if there is ever a comment of praise or comment of instruction or advice you would like to give. You can reach me at 530.753.8294. I will personally work to address any question of honesty or integrity that arises. It helps sometimes to first air these points out person to person rather than on an open stage; there can be details about an exchange that go unrevealed when there is no room allowed for personal dialog and understanding. Eda, we are sorry that your change was not given before you asked and we hope you can feel assured that this incident will make us a better business. Thank You again for your openness without which we could not improve.<br> - --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-28 17:16:39'' [[nbsp]] I called the night before to arrange for an early morning pickup.

I waited 18 hours and then called Checker. What a difference!!! --["Users/thelmaleegross"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-09-23 15:12:52'' [[nbsp]] Dear Ms. Gross, we always strive to return each and every phone call for service, but in your case we dropped the ball. I apologize for this lapse in our attention to your<br> - call. We are glad that you were able to reach Checker Cab for service; it is a daily reality that both our companies refer to one another to help cover demands for service; believe me, none of us are perfect. One of the central reasons I choose to do business in Davis is that when it comes right down to it, we all lean on each other when time and business demands require us to and back each other to help provide transportation for those who live in and visit our community. We are very hard working and earnest in this endeavor. As manager and operator of Village Cab I have personally, over the past 5-6 years, covered calls for EVERY cab company in Davis, and will continue to do so. I have made some mistakes and have helped cover others mistakes. We are all indepedent cab companies but are united in our basic sense of goodwill and determination to serve. Some of us do some things much better than others on any given day. So, I am still very proud to work for Village Cab and at the same time I apologize for not getting back to you in regards to your trip back from the Big Apple. I am hopeful that time &amp; circumstance will allow us the opportunity to serve you in the future and give us the chance to show you our true willingness to provide the absolute best transportation experience. I would like to say in closing, that it is quite unfortunate that so much of the commentary in this wiki-type medium can tend to lend itself toward polarizing one service against or for another; I say this in response to your comment, Ms. Gross, on the Checker wiki regarding the fact that Davis Cab referred you to us when you called; as mentioned above, it is important that folks who read these comments in relation to using local cab services in our wonderful city of Davis, realize that we in reality work very much in TANDEM to help each other fulfill our<br> - promises to customers. Beleive it or not, many good things we all do never make it to these pages, and it may<br> - go against the idea of competitive advantage to also admit that we local cabs co-operate much more than many might want to beleive or expect,<br> - but it is above all important to have a realistic point of view before casting dispersion.<br> - Sincerely Yours, David 'Max' Placencia<br> - <br> - we can.<br> - <br> - --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-09-23 17:42:30'' [[nbsp]] We can be contacted by email at 753taxi@gmail.com &amp; villagecabdavis@gmail.com<br> - Our toll free # is : 877-530-8294.

I had a good experience but the guy said if we didn't have any cash on us he'd have to take us to the ATM? Just curious if they're cash only or if the guy was being an ass. --["Users/rrenati"]<br> - * Some their cabs are able to accept debit and/or charge cards, but to my knowledge it has not been installed in all their vehicles. A good way to avoid this problem with any cab is to mention your payment method in advance. Most will not have any problems with you using your card since they automatically get a gratuity when you use it from what I have heard. -- ["Users/Wes-P"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-03-17 05:51:20'' [[nbsp]] Dear RRenati, we do take plastic. Sorry for the misconception. There's been a<br> - small but gradual increase in declined or max-out credit cards, and we drivers have started offering<br> - more often to stop at an ATM but in most cases only if it is not more than a few blocks out of the<br> - way. We drivers will stop the meter while you get your cash.<br> - We are most definitely however most keen on having you be satisfied about your entire taxicab experience.<br> - We will also double our efforts to ensure we carry extra paper-rolls and battery supplies for our wireless terminals<br> - to help make sure they are always capable of completing a desired transaction. We hope that your experience will not<br> - prevent you from travelling across Davis in one of our taxicabs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-03-22 12:04:06'' [[nbsp]] Within the past week, Village Cab has received a letter from an observer who reports that she saw 2 things. First, at about midnight 3 weeks ago while a fare was being dropped off outside her window, a couple of people talking loudly passed her window and attracted her attention. She looked out and watched as a cab driver and a woman were talking. The woman was fumbling through her open purse (she appeared to the observer to be drunk) and they were seemingly discussing payment for the ride. She says she heard part but not all of their conversation. A comment from the lady was heard, what amounted to ' go ahead and do whatever you want ! ' Subsequently a cabin light went dark, seemingly turned out by the driver. Second, the observer states she saw the cab driver touch the woman's chest. After a moment the woman turned the light on, smiled, gathered her purse and left the cab. Finally, the observer believed she saw that the driver looked like he felt guilty about what just transpired. No specific day or place of occurrence was given for this story, and Village Cab is inquiring into the matter. Village Cab believes its crucial the public knows Village Cab does not condone any kind of inappropriate touch-for-fare or any other payment/trade for fare except cash or credit card (credit card for payments at $7 or greater) and takes an observation like this seriously. Although the entire truth isn't known about the exchange, Village Cab is sensitive to making sure our female ridership, as well as male ridership, is transported safely. Village Cab is taking preemptive steps to place cameras in our cabs before the fiscal year is out to help aid in security for our ridership as well as our drivers. We appreciate you taking the time to read this. Any comments or questions in regard to this or any other topic of concern please feel free to email villagecabdavis@gmail.com 24 hours a day. We do not have all the specifics at this time and our observer has not as yet furnished them, but we appreciate that she had taken the time to tell us what she observed, and are most urgently concerned and<br> - conducting an inquiry. Sincerely, --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - <br> - <br> - ---------<br> - If anyone ever needs a ride, remember that Village cab always accepts reservations, 24 hours a day.

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve. We will make every effort to insure all of our patrons are served as safely and in as timely a manner as is expected. Please feel free to ask for me, David Placencia, if there is ever a comment of praise or comment of instruction or advice you would like to give. You can reach me at 530.75<span>6</span>.8294<span>&nbsp;or 530.753.8294</span>. I will personally work to address any question of honesty or integrity that arises.

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve. We will make every effort to insure all of our patrons are served as safely and in as timely a manner as is expected.

First, at about midnight 3 weeks ago while a fare was being dropped off outside her window, a couple of people talking loudly passed her window and attracted her attention. She looked out and watched as a cab driver and a woman were talking. The woman was fumbling through her open purse (she appeared to the observer to be drunk) and they were seemingly discussing payment for the ride. She says she heard part but not all of their conversation. A comment from the lady was heard, what amounted to ' go ahead and do whatever you want ! ' Subsequently a cabin light went dark, seemingly turned out by the driver. Second, the observer states she saw the cab driver touch the woman's chest. After a moment the woman turned the light on, smiled, gathered her purse and left the cab. Finally, the observer believed she saw that the driver looked like he felt guilty about what just transpired. No specific day or place of occurrence was given for this story, and Village Cab is inquiring into the matter. Village Cab believes its crucial the public knows Village Cab does not condone any kind of inappropriate touch-for-fare or any other payment/trade for fare except cash or credit card (credit card for payments at $7 or greater) and takes an observation like this seriously. Although the entire truth isn't known about the exchange, Village Cab is sensitive to making sure our female ridership, as well as male ridership, is transported safely. Village Cab is taking preemptive steps to place cameras in our cabs before the fiscal year is out to help aid in security for our ridership as well as our drivers. We appreciate you taking the time to read this. Any comments or questions in regard to this or any other topic of concern please feel free to email villagecabdavis@gmail.com 24 hours a day.

First, at about midnight 3 weeks ago while a fare was being dropped off outside her window, a couple of people talking loudly passed her window and attracted her attention. She looked out and watched as a cab driver and a woman were talking. The woman was fumbling through her open purse (she appeared to the observer to be drunk) and they were seemingly discussing payment for the ride. She says she heard part but not all of their conversation. A comment from the lady was heard, what amounted to ' go ahead and do whatever you want ! ' Subsequently a cabin light went dark, seemingly turned out by the driver. Second, the observer states she saw the cab driver touch the woman's chest. After a moment the woman turned the light on, smiled, gathered her purse and left the cab. Finally, the observer believed she saw that the driver looked like he felt guilty about what just transpired. No specific day or place of occurrence was given for this story, and Village Cab is inquiring into the matter. Village Cab believes its crucial the public knows Village Cab does not condone any kind of <span>grope</span>-for-fare or any other payment<span>s</span> for fare except cash or credit card (credit card for payments at $7 or greater) and takes an observation like this seriously.

Now, my window faces the parking lot of the complex, so whenever people get dropped off, they are essentially 10 ft. away from me, in full view.<br> - Curious about the noise, I looked out my window for a few minutes, looking around, being nosy, and as I looked over to the cab I noticed that there was one girl left in the cab, and she was VERY drunk, slurring her words, being incredibly loud. I'm not sure what started the conversation, but my guess was this girl was left to pay the cab bill.<br> - As I'm watching I hear, "Yeah, go ahead, do whatever you want!" The driver asks "really?" she says "yes," and I watch the driver of the cab look around, make sure no one was watching (didn't notice me apparently), turn off the lights in the car, lean over and start groping and possibly kissing this woman's breasts. At this point I was already completely appalled, and was contemplating calling the company. After about 20 seconds, the girl turns the car light back on, and the guy says something I can't make out and turns them off again and attempts to feel the woman up some more. She turns the light on again, and smiles at the guy and starts going through her purse.<br> - They begin talking very quietly at this point, and she starts making motions like she is going to leave, gestures at her purse, and, when the guy shakes his head, she leaves the cab, and walks to her apartment. The cab driver looks around again, looks very guilty, and drives off.<br> - <br> - I honestly cannot believe that I witnessed this, and I know that I will NEVER use this cab company. Regardless of whether someone offer to pay with a sexual favor or not, it is the cab driver's responsibility to be a good person and not act on these kinds of offers. Especially considering how drunk this woman appeared to me, I can only imagine how obvious it must have been sitting right next to her, and it is completely inappropriate to take advantage of someone in that state. If I was able to get down the license plate number I would have reported this guy, but unfortunately I wasn't able to.<br> - I know this sounds like some made up story, and I probably wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it myself.<br> - <br> - Long story short:<br> - I simply suggest that those who need a cab because they are drunk find another company, because who knows if you will be taken advantage of like the woman I saw when you are not in your right mind. I hope the company, or better yet, the driver reads this and feels ashamed for his actions, and never does something like this again!<br> - --["Users/AshleyMatson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-03-18 08:44:43'' [[nbsp]] Dear Ms Matson, this is a very serious accusation.

I was running completely late for my train out of town for the weekend and I was freaking out. I called several other cab companies, and none of them could pick me up or take a credit card, and Village Cab completely saved me. Even though the driver was already taking people down to the train station during peak Davis traffic, he came all the way back and got me to the train station just in time for me to get on my train. Without him, I would've missed my train and completely thrown off all my plans.

I told Village Cab it was an emergency and the driver got here in record time. He helped carry my luggage and got to the terminal as soon as possible.

As in, I hand him a 10 for a 6 dollar ride (from the Segundo Dorms to the Amtrak station), and he does not give me change unless I ask for it. --["Users/eda"]<br> + It is customary when presenting a ten dollar bill to pay for a ride (that's for less than the ten dollars) to say how much you would like back as change - Usually as you are handing the bill to the driver. However, sometimes communication gets crossed, missed, or not sent or received at all. It is unfortunate, EDA, that the exchange with the driver didn't go smoothly. Village Cab does thank you for your openness and your frankness. We also appreciate you calling our taxi service and hope we can meet your transportation needs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + * It is customary for the driver to return the change to the customer unless instructed otherwise. This was not a case of poor communication, it was a case of the driver acting very poorly. The driver should be instructed on how to correctly conduct a transaction. marty<br> + * Are you at all familiar with a process called "tipping"? As in waiters, pizza delivery people, and taxi drivers customarily recieve tips. If you overpay slightly and do not request change, it is reasonable for a taxi driver to assume you are providing a small gratuity. --["Users/JodyNorthup"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-05-21 20:05:26'' [[nbsp]] since when does village cab rock a camry? --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> + * Where are you seeing a Camry?

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve. We will make every effort to insure all of our patrons are served as safely and in as timely a manner as is expected.

I apologize for this lapse in our attention to your<br> + call. We are glad that you were able to reach Checker Cab for service; it is a daily reality that both our companies refer to one another to help cover demands for service; believe me, none of us are perfect. One of the central reasons I choose to do business in Davis is that when it comes right down to it, we all lean on each other when time and business demands require us to and back each other to help provide transportation for those who live in and visit our community. We are very hard working and earnest in this endeavor. As manager and operator of Village Cab I have personally, over the past 5-6 years, covered calls for EVERY cab company in Davis, and will continue to do so. I have made some mistakes and have helped cover others mistakes. We are all indepedent cab companies but are united in our basic sense of goodwill and determination to serve. Some of us do some things much better than others on any given day. So, I am still very proud to work for Village Cab and at the same time I apologize for not getting back to you in regards to your trip back from the Big Apple. I am hopeful that time &amp; circumstance will allow us the opportunity to serve you in the future and give us the chance to show you our true willingness to provide the absolute best transportation experience. I would like to say in closing, that it is quite unfortunate that so much of the commentary in this wiki-type medium can tend to lend itself toward polarizing one service against or for another; I say this in response to your comment, Ms. Gross, on the Checker wiki regarding the fact that Davis Cab referred you to us when you called; as mentioned above, it is important that folks who read these comments in relation to using local cab services in our wonderful city of Davis, realize that we in reality work very much in TANDEM to help each other fulfill our<br> + promises to customers. Beleive it or not, many good things we all do never make it to these pages, and it may<br> + go against the idea of competitive advantage to also admit that we local cabs co-operate much more than many might want to beleive or expect,<br> + but it is above all important to have a realistic point of view before casting dispersion.<br> + Sincerely Yours, David 'Max' Placencia<br> + <br> + we can.<br> + <br> + --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-09-23 17:42:30'' [[nbsp]] We can be reached by text @ 530-304-8294; by email at 753taxi@gmail.com &amp; villagecabdavis@gmail.com<br> + Our toll free # is : 877-530-8294.

Sorry for the misconception. There's been a<br> + small but gradual increase in declined or max-out credit cards, and we drivers have started offering<br> + more often to stop at an ATM but in most cases only if it is not more than a few blocks out of the<br> + way.

Now, my window faces the parking lot of the complex, so whenever people get dropped off, they are essentially 10 ft. away from me, in full view.<br> + Curious about the noise, I looked out my window for a few minutes, looking around, being nosy, and as I looked over to the cab I noticed that there was one girl left in the cab, and she was VERY drunk, slurring her words, being incredibly loud. I'm not sure what started the conversation, but my guess was this girl was left to pay the cab bill.<br> + As I'm watching I hear, "Yeah, go ahead, do whatever you want!" The driver asks "really?" she says "yes," and I watch the driver of the cab look around, make sure no one was watching (didn't notice me apparently), turn off the lights in the car, lean over and start groping and possibly kissing this woman's breasts. At this point I was already completely appalled, and was contemplating calling the company. After about 20 seconds, the girl turns the car light back on, and the guy says something I can't make out and turns them off again and attempts to feel the woman up some more. She turns the light on again, and smiles at the guy and starts going through her purse.<br> + They begin talking very quietly at this point, and she starts making motions like she is going to leave, gestures at her purse, and, when the guy shakes his head, she leaves the cab, and walks to her apartment. The cab driver looks around again, looks very guilty, and drives off.<br> + <br> + I honestly cannot believe that I witnessed this, and I know that I will NEVER use this cab company. Regardless of whether someone offer to pay with a sexual favor or not, it is the cab driver's responsibility to be a good person and not act on these kinds of offers. Especially considering how drunk this woman appeared to me, I can only imagine how obvious it must have been sitting right next to her, and it is completely inappropriate to take advantage of someone in that state. If I was able to get down the license plate number I would have reported this guy, but unfortunately I wasn't able to.<br> + I know this sounds like some made up story, and I probably wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it myself.<br> + <br> + Long story short:<br> + I simply suggest that those who need a cab because they are drunk find another company, because who knows if you will be taken advantage of like the woman I saw when you are not in your right mind. I hope the company, or better yet, the driver reads this and feels ashamed for his actions, and never does something like this again!<br> + --["Users/AshleyMatson"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-03-18 08:44:43'' [[nbsp]] Dear Ms Matson, this is a very serious accusation. We would hope if any inappropriate behaviors took place, and you witnessed them, you would report them to us via phone call immediately or via our email @ villagecabdavis@gmail.com. Village Cab is absolutely NOT in the business of making exchanges such as the one you suggest. We sincerely hope &amp; pray that the manner in which you are telling your story is not done so with the intent to slander. We request, because of the serious nature of this accusation, that we at least be allowed to inquire and discover what was truly involved with what you saw.<br> + --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Village Cabhttp://daviswiki.org/Village_Cab2011-03-21 13:15:56DavidPlacenciaPage deleted (editing choice) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Village Cab<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ##[[Image(Village_Cab_in_action.JPG, right, thumbnail, 400, "Photo of one of the cabs rushing off to its next fare.")]]##<br> - ##We appreciate your interest in our business, but this vehicle is no longer in use or associated with us... pics are always appreciated; recent ones even moreso. :) thx. -kiel, villagecab driver##<br> - <br> - [[Image(closeup.jpg, thumbnail, right, 350, "Repeat Customers Are Our Biggest Tip! :)")]]<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Location'''||<br> - ||From your front door to anywhere you would like to go.||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Hours'''||<br> - ||'''Open 24/7 since May 2004'''||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Phone'''||<br> - ||(530) 753-TAXI (530) 753-8294||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Contact'''||<br> - ||[[Mailto(villagecabdavis AT gmail DOT com)]]||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Payment Methods'''||<br> - ||Cash, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express||<br> - <br> - '''Village Cab''' offers 24 hour ["Taxi Services" taxi service] that is one of the modes of ["transportation"] in town for those who find themselves ["car-free in Davis"], either by lifestyle, for the moment or due to ["alcohol" celebrating the] ["marijuana" various wonders] ["Sleeping on Campus" of life].

I was running completely late for my train out of town for the weekend and I was freaking out. I called several other cab companies, and none of them could pick me up or take a credit card, and Village Cab completely saved me. Even though the driver was already taking people down to the train station during peak Davis traffic, he came all the way back and got me to the train station just in time for me to get on my train. Without him, I would've missed my train and completely thrown off all my plans.

As in, I hand him a 10 for a 6 dollar ride (from the Segundo Dorms to the Amtrak station), and he does not give me change unless I ask for it. --["Users/eda"]<br> - It is customary when presenting a ten dollar bill to pay for a ride (that's for less than the ten dollars) to say how much you would like back as change - Usually as you are handing the bill to the driver. However, sometimes communication gets crossed, missed, or not sent or received at all. It is unfortunate, EDA, that the exchange with the driver didn't go smoothly. Village Cab does thank you for your openness and your frankness. We also appreciate you calling our taxi service and hope we can meet your transportation needs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - * It is customary for the driver to return the change to the customer unless instructed otherwise. This was not a case of poor communication, it was a case of the driver acting very poorly. The driver should be instructed on how to correctly conduct a transaction. marty<br> - * Are you at all familiar with a process called "tipping"? As in waiters, pizza delivery people, and taxi drivers customarily recieve tips. If you overpay slightly and do not request change, it is reasonable for a taxi driver to assume you are providing a small gratuity. --["Users/JodyNorthup"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-21 20:05:26'' [[nbsp]] since when does village cab rock a camry? --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> - * Where are you seeing a Camry?

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve.

What a difference!!! --["Users/thelmaleegross"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-09-23 15:12:52'' [[nbsp]] Dear Ms. Gross, we always strive to return each and every phone call for service, but in your case we dropped the ball. I apologize for this lapse in our attention to your<br> - call. We are glad that you were able to reach Checker Cab for service; it is a daily reality that both our companies refer to one another to help cover demands for service; believe me, none of us are perfect. One of the central reasons I choose to do business in Davis is that when it comes right down to it, we all lean on each other when time and business demands require us to and back each other to help provide transportation for those who live in and visit our community. We are very hard working and earnest in this endeavor. As manager and operator of Village Cab I have personally, over the past 5-6 years, covered calls for EVERY cab company in Davis, and will continue to do so. I have made some mistakes and have helped cover others mistakes. We are all indepedent cab companies but are united in our basic sense of goodwill and determination to serve. Some of us do some things much better than others on any given day. So, I am still very proud to work for Village Cab and at the same time I apologize for not getting back to you in regards to your trip back from the Big Apple. I am hopeful that time &amp; circumstance will allow us the opportunity to serve you in the future and give us the chance to show you our true willingness to provide the absolute best transportation experience. I would like to say in closing, that it is quite unfortunate that so much of the commentary in this wiki-type medium can tend to lend itself toward polarizing one service against or for another; I say this in response to your comment, Ms. Gross, on the Checker wiki regarding the fact that Davis Cab referred you to us when you called; as mentioned above, it is important that folks who read these comments in relation to using local cab services in our wonderful city of Davis, realize that we in reality work very much in TANDEM to help each other fulfill our<br> - promises to customers. Beleive it or not, many good things we all do never make it to these pages, and it may<br> - go against the idea of competitive advantage to also admit that we local cabs co-operate much more than many might want to beleive or expect,<br> - but it is above all important to have a realistic point of view before casting dispersion.<br> - Sincerely Yours, David 'Max' Placencia<br> - <br> - we can.<br> - <br> - --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-09-23 17:42:30'' [[nbsp]] We can be reached by text @ 530-304-8294; by email at 753taxi@gmail.com &amp; villagecabdavis@gmail.com<br> - Our toll free # is : 877-530-8294.

I had a good experience but the guy said if we didn't have any cash on us he'd have to take us to the ATM? Just curious if they're cash only or if the guy was being an ass. --["Users/rrenati"]<br> - * Some their cabs are able to accept debit and/or charge cards, but to my knowledge it has not been installed in all their vehicles. A good way to avoid this problem with any cab is to mention your payment method in advance. Most will not have any problems with you using your card since they automatically get a gratuity when you use it from what I have heard. -- ["Users/Wes-P"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-03-17 05:51:20'' [[nbsp]] Dear RRenati, we do take plastic. Sorry for the misconception. There's been a<br> - small but gradual increase in declined or max-out credit cards, and we drivers have started offering<br> - more often to stop at an ATM but in most cases only if it is not more than a few blocks out of the<br> - way. We drivers will stop the meter while you get your cash.<br> - We are most definitely however most keen on having you be satisfied about your entire taxicab experience.<br> - We will also double our efforts to ensure we carry extra paper-rolls and battery supplies for our wireless terminals<br> - to help make sure they are always capable of completing a desired transaction. We hope that your experience will not<br> - prevent you from travelling across Davis in one of our taxicabs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-03-18 00:04:16'' [[nbsp]] My Village Cab Story:<br> - <br> - About two weeks ago I was awoken by some loud talking outside my apartment window around 12am, and I looked outside to see that it was people getting out of a Village Cab, clearly drunk. Now, my window faces the parking lot of the complex, so whenever people get dropped off, they are essentially 10 ft. away from me, in full view.<br> - Curious about the noise, I looked out my window for a few minutes, looking around, being nosy, and as I looked over to the cab I noticed that there was one girl left in the cab, and she was VERY drunk, slurring her words, being incredibly loud. I'm not sure what started the conversation, but my guess was this girl was left to pay the cab bill.<br> - As I'm watching I hear, "Yeah, go ahead, do whatever you want!" The driver asks "really?" she says "yes," and I watch the driver of the cab look around, make sure no one was watching (didn't notice me apparently), turn off the lights in the car, lean over and start groping and possibly kissing this woman's breasts. At this point I was already completely appalled, and was contemplating calling the company. After about 20 seconds, the girl turns the car light back on, and the guy says something I can't make out and turns them off again and attempts to feel the woman up some more. She turns the light on again, and smiles at the guy and starts going through her purse.<br> - They begin talking very quietly at this point, and she starts making motions like she is going to leave, gestures at her purse, and, when the guy shakes his head, she leaves the cab, and walks to her apartment. The cab driver looks around again, looks very guilty, and drives off.<br> - <br> - I honestly cannot believe that I witnessed this, and I know that I will NEVER use this cab company. Regardless of whether someone offer to pay with a sexual favor or not, it is the cab driver's responsibility to be a good person and not act on these kinds of offers. Especially considering how drunk this woman appeared to me, I can only imagine how obvious it must have been sitting right next to her, and it is completely inappropriate to take advantage of someone in that state. If I was able to get down the license plate number I would have reported this guy, but unfortunately I wasn't able to.<br> - I know this sounds like some made up story, and I probably wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it myself.<br> - <br> - Long story short:<br> - I simply suggest that those who need a cab because they are drunk find another company, because who knows if you will be taken advantage of like the woman I saw when you are not in your right mind. I hope the company, or better yet, the driver reads this and feels ashamed for his actions, and never does something like this again!<br> - --["Users/AshleyMatson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-03-18 08:44:43'' [[nbsp]] Dear Ms Matson, this is a very serious accusation.

I was running completely late for my train out of town for the weekend and I was freaking out. I called several other cab companies, and none of them could pick me up or take a credit card, and Village Cab completely saved me. Even though the driver was already taking people down to the train station during peak Davis traffic, he came all the way back and got me to the train station just in time for me to get on my train. Without him, I would've missed my train and completely thrown off all my plans.

I told Village Cab it was an emergency and the driver got here in record time. He helped carry my luggage and got to the terminal as soon as possible.

As in, I hand him a 10 for a 6 dollar ride (from the Segundo Dorms to the Amtrak station), and he does not give me change unless I ask for it. --["Users/eda"]<br> + It is customary when presenting a ten dollar bill to pay for a ride (that's for less than the ten dollars) to say how much you would like back as change - Usually as you are handing the bill to the driver. However, sometimes communication gets crossed, missed, or not sent or received at all. It is unfortunate, EDA, that the exchange with the driver didn't go smoothly. Village Cab does thank you for your openness and your frankness. We also appreciate you calling our taxi service and hope we can meet your transportation needs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + * It is customary for the driver to return the change to the customer unless instructed otherwise. This was not a case of poor communication, it was a case of the driver acting very poorly. The driver should be instructed on how to correctly conduct a transaction. marty<br> + * Are you at all familiar with a process called "tipping"? As in waiters, pizza delivery people, and taxi drivers customarily recieve tips. If you overpay slightly and do not request change, it is reasonable for a taxi driver to assume you are providing a small gratuity. --["Users/JodyNorthup"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-05-21 20:05:26'' [[nbsp]] since when does village cab rock a camry? --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> + * Where are you seeing a Camry?

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve. We will make every effort to insure all of our patrons are served as safely and in as timely a manner as is expected.

I will personally work to address any question of honesty or integrity that arises. It helps sometimes to first air these points out person to person rather than on an open stage; there can be details about an exchange that go unrevealed when there is no room allowed for personal dialog and understanding. Eda, we are sorry that your change was not given before you asked and we hope you can feel assured that this incident will make us a better business.

Now, my window faces the parking lot of the complex, so whenever people get dropped off, they are essentially 10 ft. away from me, in full view.<br> + Curious about the noise, I looked out my window for a few minutes, looking around, being nosy, and as I looked over to the cab I noticed that there was one girl left in the cab, and she was VERY drunk, slurring her words, being incredibly loud. I'm not sure what started the conversation, but my guess was this girl was left to pay the cab bill.<br> + As I'm watching I hear, "Yeah, go ahead, do whatever you want!" The driver asks "really?" she says "yes," and I watch the driver of the cab look around, make sure no one was watching (didn't notice me apparently), turn off the lights in the car, lean over and start groping and possibly kissing this woman's breasts. At this point I was already completely appalled, and was contemplating calling the company. After about 20 seconds, the girl turns the car light back on, and the guy says something I can't make out and turns them off again and attempts to feel the woman up some more. She turns the light on again, and smiles at the guy and starts going through her purse.<br> + They begin talking very quietly at this point, and she starts making motions like she is going to leave, gestures at her purse, and, when the guy shakes his head, she leaves the cab, and walks to her apartment. The cab driver looks around again, looks very guilty, and drives off.<br> + <br> + I honestly cannot believe that I witnessed this, and I know that I will NEVER use this cab company. Regardless of whether someone offer to pay with a sexual favor or not, it is the cab driver's responsibility to be a good person and not act on these kinds of offers. Especially considering how drunk this woman appeared to me, I can only imagine how obvious it must have been sitting right next to her, and it is completely inappropriate to take advantage of someone in that state. If I was able to get down the license plate number I would have reported this guy, but unfortunately I wasn't able to.<br> + I know this sounds like some made up story, and I probably wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it myself.<br> + <br> + Long story short:<br> + I simply suggest that those who need a cab because they are drunk find another company, because who knows if you will be taken advantage of like the woman I saw when you are not in your right mind. I hope the company, or better yet, the driver reads this and feels ashamed for his actions, and never does something like this again!<br> + --["Users/AshleyMatson"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Village Cabhttp://daviswiki.org/Village_Cab2011-03-21 13:13:00DavidPlacenciaPage deleted (by choice) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Village Cab<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ##[[Image(Village_Cab_in_action.JPG, right, thumbnail, 400, "Photo of one of the cabs rushing off to its next fare.")]]##<br> - ##We appreciate your interest in our business, but this vehicle is no longer in use or associated with us... pics are always appreciated; recent ones even moreso. :) thx. -kiel, villagecab driver##<br> - <br> - [[Image(closeup.jpg, thumbnail, right, 350, "Repeat Customers Are Our Biggest Tip! :)")]]<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Location'''||<br> - ||From your front door to anywhere you would like to go.||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Hours'''||<br> - ||'''Open 24/7 since May 2004'''||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Phone'''||<br> - ||(530) 753-TAXI (530) 753-8294||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Contact'''||<br> - ||[[Mailto(villagecabdavis AT gmail DOT com)]]||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Payment Methods'''||<br> - ||Cash, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express||<br> - <br> - '''Village Cab''' offers 24 hour ["Taxi Services" taxi service] that is one of the modes of ["transportation"] in town for those who find themselves ["car-free in Davis"], either by lifestyle, for the moment or due to ["alcohol" celebrating the] ["marijuana" various wonders] ["Sleeping on Campus" of life].

I was running completely late for my train out of town for the weekend and I was freaking out. I called several other cab companies, and none of them could pick me up or take a credit card, and Village Cab completely saved me. Even though the driver was already taking people down to the train station during peak Davis traffic, he came all the way back and got me to the train station just in time for me to get on my train. Without him, I would've missed my train and completely thrown off all my plans. From now on, Village Cab will be the first taxi service I call, every time! --["Users/HannahReff"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-06-19 01:53:32'' [[nbsp]] Village Cab is awesome! Like Hannah, I was also running late. I had to catch the plane in an hour, and I just missed the bus because of heavy luggage. I told Village Cab it was an emergency and the driver got here in record time. He helped carry my luggage and got to the terminal as soon as possible. If it weren't for Village Cab I would need to find an inn to stay. If anyone asks, I will most definitely recommend Village Cab.

As in, I hand him a 10 for a 6 dollar ride (from the Segundo Dorms to the Amtrak station), and he does not give me change unless I ask for it. --["Users/eda"]<br> - It is customary when presenting a ten dollar bill to pay for a ride (that's for less than the ten dollars) to say how much you would like back as change - Usually as you are handing the bill to the driver. However, sometimes communication gets crossed, missed, or not sent or received at all. It is unfortunate, EDA, that the exchange with the driver didn't go smoothly. Village Cab does thank you for your openness and your frankness. We also appreciate you calling our taxi service and hope we can meet your transportation needs in the future. --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - * It is customary for the driver to return the change to the customer unless instructed otherwise. This was not a case of poor communication, it was a case of the driver acting very poorly. The driver should be instructed on how to correctly conduct a transaction. marty<br> - * Are you at all familiar with a process called "tipping"? As in waiters, pizza delivery people, and taxi drivers customarily recieve tips. If you overpay slightly and do not request change, it is reasonable for a taxi driver to assume you are providing a small gratuity. --["Users/JodyNorthup"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-21 20:05:26'' [[nbsp]] since when does village cab rock a camry? --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> - * Where are you seeing a Camry?

Yes, it is fair to say that in a transaction of this kind change should be presented to the payer as swiftly as possible to avoid the appearance of dishonesty. I would ask if 'marty' was actually there when this exchange took place, and if not, why so harsh a judgment? Is it at all possible there was a simple misunderstanding? How do you know the driver acted 'very poorly?'...I definitely agree that absolutely noone should ever be short-changed. But I also believe you can short-change someone's credibility by assigning pre-mature judgement when they their performance falls short in an isolated instance. I stand firmly behind the honesty of Village Cab drivers as well as for the fairness and kindness of those thousands of customers we have served and hope to serve. We will make every effort to insure all of our patrons are served as safely and in as timely a manner as is expected. Please feel free to ask for me, David Placencia, if there is ever a comment of praise or comment of instruction or advice you would like to give. You can reach me at 530.756.8294 or 530.753.8294. I will personally work to address any question of honesty or integrity that arises. It helps sometimes to first air these points out person to person rather than on an open stage; there can be details about an exchange that go unrevealed when there is no room allowed for personal dialog and understanding. Eda, we are sorry that your change was not given before you asked and we hope you can feel assured that this incident will make us a better business. Thank You again for your openness without which we could not improve.<br> - --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-28 17:16:39'' [[nbsp]] I called the night before to arrange for an early morning pickup.

Both times they were very courteous and understanding of the situation; I was called when they picked up the person and again when they arrived at the destination. I live over 150 miles away and was able to use my credit card for the fare. Village Cab is the best and I certainly recommend them to anyone who wants superior service in and around Davis.

We are glad that you were able to reach Checker Cab for service; it is a daily reality that both our companies refer to one another to help cover demands for service; believe me, none of us are perfect. One of the central reasons I choose to do business in Davis is that when it comes right down to it, we all lean on each other when time and business demands require us to and back each other to help provide transportation for those who live in and visit our community. We are very hard working and earnest in this endeavor. As manager and operator of Village Cab I have personally, over the past 5-6 years, covered calls for EVERY cab company in Davis, and will continue to do so. I have made some mistakes and have helped cover others mistakes. We are all indepedent cab companies but are united in our basic sense of goodwill and determination to serve. Some of us do some things much better than others on any given day. So, I am still very proud to work for Village Cab and at the same time I apologize for not getting back to you in regards to your trip back from the Big Apple. I am hopeful that time &amp; circumstance will allow us the opportunity to serve you in the future and give us the chance to show you our true willingness to provide the absolute best transportation experience.
