Light Shines on Aurora

What's fare is fair: New cab company decries PUC rejection

AURORA | The brightly colored pages of Edem “Archie” Archibong’s appointment book are rarely blank.

Instead, the neon slips of paper the Aurora cab driver totes around fill up with appointments around the clock.

At 1:45 p.m. last Friday, he was set to drive a client to the airport. And at 4 p.m. he was heading back to the airport to pick someone up. And again at 8 p.m. his purple cab would be motoring toward the airport once again.

“This is what my day looks like, I cannot do them all,” the Nigerian immigrant said in an interview last week in front of his Aurora home. “These are people who called for taxis the previous time and nobody showed up, due to bad service.”

Archibong, who has been driving a cab for Freedom Cab for 15 years, has joined with 150 other cab drivers with the hopes of starting a new cab company called Mile High Taxi that he said would tap into those customers who have trouble getting a ride from the current companies.

  1. Good story. Almost half of Mile HIgh Cab's drivers live in Aurora, and the company would like to locate its HQ in Aurora. This will create 160+ jobs.

    Ever tried getting a cab in Aurora? There's no oversupply in Aurora, that's for darn sure.

  3. A good taxi service always leaves a smile on their passengers. It is nice to be in such kind of a taxi company.
