Who’s driving you?
We’re your neighbors and friends
Our drivers are local, independent contractors who come from all walks of life. Some were teachers, some business leaders, others are students or moms and dads supporting their families. All of our 100+ drivers are professional taxi drivers who love what they do and where they do it.
In fact, if you ask our drivers why they drive a cab you’re likely to hear they like being their own boss and the flexibility driving a cab affords them while making a good living. But even more than that, they love to help people, and many have made good friends along the way.
We’re Sacramento’s Ambassadors
Yellow Cab drivers live and work in Sacramento and they love their town!
They also know their way around. That means you get where you’re going as safely and quickly as possible.
If you’re not sure where you want to go, just ask your driver. Whether you’re looking for the most popular place to visit, a local hangout, or someplace quiet to get away from it all, your driver can recommend just the right restaurants, clubs, attractions, points of interest and secret hideaways.
You’re in good hands with Yellow Cab
All Yellow Cab drivers are licensed and fully insured 24/7/365. Plus, we complete a thorough background check before they are allowed to drive one of our cabs. We then put them through extensive training that not only includes how to drive a cab, but also what our customers like, and what they don’t. That way you get the best driver around.
Your own, personal driver
Wouldn’t it be great to have a driver you know and trust? One that knows you, what you like and what you don’t. With Yellow Cab of Sacramento you can! We have over 100 drivers and a variety of vehicles to choose from. Once you find the driver you like with the vehicle you need, you can call him or her directly to schedule a ride. To get you started, take a look at a few of their stories. If you find that sounds like a good fit for you, you can call him or her directly at the number listed.

I’m originally from Pakistan and my whole family lives in the United States now. We are very happy in the US. This is my country and I love it. My children go to school here and my son is getting a good education. I am a very happy man.
I started driving a cab because 2 or 3 of my friends drove for Yellow Cab of Sacramento and they really liked it. Even though it was during the Recession, everyone was doing well and making money.
I take people all over. Not just Sacramento, but to Reno, San Francisco, and other places. Many of the roads I drive on are dangerous and often have no cell service, but I enjoy the challenge.

Driving a cab is a good profession for being self employed, especially for someone like me who likes to serve people. After graduating in the 90s, I worked multiple managerial positions and saved up enough money to open my own business. But when the Recession hit, a lot of people were laid off. I lost my business and had to find a new line of work. Luckily for me I found my place at Yellow Cab. Driving a cab allows me to be my own boss, manage my hours, feed my family and meet my goals.
Being a taxi driver is also a good learning experience. I go to a lot of places other drivers won’t go and I try to help the people there. I also get a lot of “cab confessions.” People get out of bars and tell me their life stories. I’ve heard a lot of interesting stories over the years, and I’m ready to hear yours too!

Driving a taxi is the best job in the world!
I have a Masters Degree in education and I taught history in local schools for 10 years. I lived in Oceanside for a while and drove cabs for Yellow Cab down there. Then I moved to a meditation retreat in Nevada City for a year and ran the kitchen there. But I realized that I really love driving a cab – it’s my calling. I don’t do it for the money; as long as I have enough for food and rent, I’m happy.
Driving a cab I run into humanity every day and it lets me help people, which makes my day. I believe that if you treat others right, it will come back to you.One day I picked up a lady and took her all the way to Placerville even though all she had was a few dollars. The next day I was rewarded with a very high-paying fare.
Another thing I love about driving a taxi is I get to meet people from all over the world. It’s really fun to see our city through someone’s eyes who has never been here before, and tourists are always happy and excited to be here. Once I picked up a man in Elk Grove who was from China. He was staying with his cousin who helped him get the cab because the man didn’t speak any English. He wanted to go to Daly City near San Francisco to visit his friend. Since he didn’t speak English we couldn’t talk, so all the way there he played Chinese music for me. It was a long drive but very fun and interesting.

I’m a native of Sacramento; it’s my home. I first started driving a taxi because I needed work and it seemed like a good job. I really like driving a cab, and have stuck with it for a long time. I like that I can pick my own hours. When I first started driving I mostly drove at night, but now I prefer to drive during the day. It also allows me to do things I enjoy like sketching when I’m waiting for a fare.
I’ve made a lot of friends and loyal customers driving a cab over the years. Sometimes I help them, and sometimes they help me. It’s really a great job.

I moved to Sacramento when I was a kid and I love it here! I drive the streets of Downtown and Midtown most nights between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. Aside from being a taxi driver, I have a lot of business, sales, marketing and computer skills, including an Associates Degree in Computer Network Security and one in Ministorial Arts.
In my business, I focus on building relationships with my clients. I’ve earned a reputation for providing a friendly, professional ride with world-class entertainment. My cab is known as “The Party Cab” and I pride myself on giving clean and safe rides to people exploring Downtown and Midtown Sacramento’s night life.
In addition to playing music of multiple genres from my personal collection, I also play and perform many of my songs of my personal creation (some include others collaborating with me). Most of the songs I perform are my parodies, but the song “I’m Going All the Way!” is an original song that is available on iTunes for download purchase (or some free services like Spotify and many others). My opening words to this song put clarity to my passion —
I’m a celebrity cabbie,
Rapping to the beats in my Black n Yellow taxi
I’m a new-media mogul
Going to n fro in downtown Sacto
Settin new marketing trends wherever I go
So Don’t Drink and Drive
Call a cabbie! to stay alive
And keep your ride!
Yea! That’s my motto
And you will be seeing me all over the world from the US to Tokyo!”
So if you’re out having fun in Downtown or Midtown Sac, you don’t have to worry about having fun. Just call Taxi Dave and I’ll get you around safe and sound.

I grew up in North Sacramento and I love the diversity of our city. We’re known for a lot of special things. Plus I love the weather!
I started driving a cab because of the flexibility. I’m the mom of young kids, and when emergencies pop up I can be there for them because I set my own schedule. After I started, I realized I absolutely love driving a taxi! I truly enjoy helping people, and I’ve made some good friends and clients. I never dread going to work.
One of my favorite customers is a little lady that I take to Thunder Valley Casino. She’s amazing! She’s in her 70s and has had a lot of health issues. When she gets out of the hospital she calls me up, and I take her to the casino. When she’s done gambling she takes the shuttle to a stop near my house, and I take her home. Sometimes she loses her money and can’t pay for that trip, but she always makes up for it. Her daughter makes pastries and she loves to give them to me. If I’m busy and I can’t take her, I call one of the other cabbies and they help her. We’re all friends and we help each other out.
