Being A Cab Driver is the Best Job in the World!
Be your own boss
When you lease a car from Yellow Cab of Sacramento, you’re a self-employed business person. You can choose to drive the streets looking for fares; wait at one of the hotels where we have exclusive contracts like the Hyatt, Holiday Inn or Doubletree; drive for one of our house accounts; or build your own customer base and just drive for them. You’re the boss and you decide.
Work when you want
As an independent contractor, you choose when you work and when you don’t. You can drive as much or as little as you like. And you can drive whenever it fits your schedule, so you’re free to take classes, take your kids to school, work another job, or just take a nap in the middle of the day.
Keep the fares and the tips
As a Yellow Cab of Sacramento driver you lease a car from us. So every dollar you make from fares and tips goes right into your pocket.
Earn steady income
Yellow Cab of Sacramento has many corporate accounts that transport hundreds of passengers every day. Some of those accounts even have regular schedules, so you can have a set schedule with guaranteed income. Plus you’ll be driving the same people at the same times, so you’ll get to know your customers.
Build your customer base and make new friends
As an independent contractor rather than an employee, you are free to give your contact information to anyone who rides in your cab — even if the ride originates from one of our accounts, dispatch or the Curb app. They are your customers, not ours. That way you can have your regulars that you know and like. In fact many drivers say they have made new friends from their regular customers.
