Catherine and I have been semi-regular customers of Coop Taxi here in Charlottetown for 8 years now. When we lived in Kingston, Catherine’s lifeline to the Big City was Coop; she still uses them to run out to Sobeys from time to time, now that downtown Charlottetown is devoid of grocery stores, and I take them out to Charlottetown Airport every couple of months.
In all this time — say, 250 trips — they have never failed us. They have never been too long coming, never missed a scheduled early morning pickup, never failed to answer their phone, never failed to offer helpful, courteous service.
If you need a cab in Charlottetown, you cannot go wrong with them. 628-8200. Employee owned cooperative.
Tangent: if you are ever in need of a conversation starter in a taxi cab in Charlottetown, just ask the driver about the situation in the taxi industry. No matter who they’re driving for, they will have a strong opinion. I’ve have innumerable conversations about Ed’s vs. Star vs. Yellow vs. Coop. Good Island fun.
