I used them for my grandmother who is in a wheelchair and we have been having a hard time finding cabs willing to transport her. They had a handicap accessible van that picked her up and even helped her out of the house and down her steps. I'm going to use them all the time when she comes home from rehab
compassionate driver – I used Harris Cab's disabled transportation service. I was having a difficult time trying to find a service last minute and they were very pleasant to work with. The girl who answered the phone and set up the pick up with the driver was so nice and called back with a confirmation, as she said that she would. The driver was both timely and so compassionate with my disabled father. I would definitely call them again.
Inflated Cost, Rude Driver – Horrible service, rude driver. Drove well below the speed limit to drive up the cost of the trip. The driver tried to charge us more than what the cost was on the meter. A police officer had to step in when the driver got out of the cab and followed us into our hotel after I told him that he was being rude and dishonest. I would have rather walked the 20 miles home had I known what this cab service was like. The only reason I give them 1 star is becuase 0 stars isn't an option.
Inflated rates and questionable driver – My wife and I caught a Harris cab driven by Jerome Washington when we returned to St. Louis at the new Amtrak station. The driver didn't know the address or the street we were headed to, so I gave him a landmark about a block away (a major grocery store in a well-known neighborhood), which he said he knew. His driving was erratic (he drifted across lines and then snapped back), and as we neared the cross street, he announced that we would have to tell him when we were getting close because HE COULDN'T READ THE STREET SIGNS.
When we finally stopped, the meter read $13.90, but he told us to pay a flat $17 because of "passenger rate," which was not indicated on his meter anywhere (though I know it's common). I'm not sure how he calculated a $3.10 extra passenger fee, but we paid it with no tip, glad to be safe at home.
The same trip (reverse route) to the Amtrak station a few days earlier had cost us $11.50 (INCLUDING the passenger fee) from Laclede Cab, and our driver had not only been much more competent, she was actually cordial and friendly.
Laclede Cab's advertised rates are significantly lower. As a bartender, I regularly called Laclede Cab to pickup customers, and the drivers were consistently friendly to both me and (sometimes rowdy) customers. I highly recommend Laclede Cab, and I discourage you from taking Harris Cab, if you have any alternative.
Thank you terri and harris cab! – Great job helping our military and the USO !
