How often do passengers ask if you can help them score drugs?

Asked by topchopper over 5 years ago

Almost everyday actually, sometimes multiple times a day. I just ssy i dont know what you are talking about and carry on with the ride.

What's the biggest tip you ever received?

Asked by J-n-Dub over 6 years ago

The biggest single tip i got was from a couple of kids that were not allowed to fly for bringing cocaine on a plane so i took them round trip from vegas to huntington beach california for a tournament. it was $1600 and they doubled the fare.

Do you love or hate when passengers wanna chat with you?

Asked by heyarnold almost 6 years ago

Love it! Its pretty uncomfortable to ride in silence! However that being said I will not hold a conversation that makes 0 sense I give them 1 chance then I tell them they are broken and have lost their talking privileges for the remainder of the trip.

Why do taxi drivers prefer cash if the meter records exactly what the fare was anyway. I used to think it was so they didn't have to report it on their taxes, but doesn't the meter create an official record that would make not reporting it dicey?

Asked by Brian P. almost 6 years ago

the only reason I would think that a las vegas cabbie would prefer cash is that it is a faster transaction! Personally I could care less which one.

My 22 year old daughter is coming to Las Vegas next week for a conference in Boulder City. She has little freeway driving experience and has been to Vegas once. Would she be ok renting a car and driving from airport to Boulder City or get a cab?

Asked by Erika over 5 years ago

A taxi to boulder city would be rather expensive probably looking in the neighborhood of abour 50-70 depending on where she is going, howevee that said it is all freeway.  I would love this ride personally but my personal suggestion is to set up sedan service, will end up being cheaper since they charge by the hour, and should only take about a half hour to get there.

Do people ever ask you to keep your meter off in exchange for a cheaper fare? In Montreal, cabbies like when you do that because they get to keep the entire fare for themselves instead of having to split it with the cab company so you both win.

Asked by TimRaines almost 6 years ago

Yes, it happens all the time however if we get caught "high flagging" a fare you could be immediately terminated. Not to mention a pretty healthy fine from the taxicab authority so its just not worth it to me for a couple more bucks.
