Our Drivers

We have 80-100 taxicab drivers who are independently contracted through City Yellow Cab. However, the number fluctuates depending on the season. During the winter months, City Yellow Cab has approximately 100 independent contractors. 
Here at City Yellow Cab, we believe in providing safe transportation services to the public.  Our independent contractors participate in the T.I.L.T. program with Trained, Insured, Licensed, and Tested qualified drivers. Our drivers are trained in many aspects including driver and passenger safety. 

Licensing though the state of Ohio and the city of Akron are minimum qualifications for transportation companies serving Akron, Ohio.  However, City Yellow Cab raises the bar and requires an extensive training and evaluation process for all their drivers. Along with the basic licensing requirements, all drivers are finger printed and expected to pass a federal criminal background check. In addition, drivers must pass a Department of Motor Vehicle check, complete Drug and Alcohol testing, and complete a CPR and First Aid training program. Several driving courses are required including a defensive driving program through the National Safety Council, a program called DRIVE sponsored the Area Agency of Aging and A.D.A training in sensitivity, awareness and assistance. 

All of our drivers are required to re-certify in trainings bi-annually.
