Yellow Cabs was established in February 1975 by Donald Le Boutillier, William Stone and Peter Luce these three would form the first Committee. It was decided that the company would operate as a co-operative and any profits made would be invested in premises and equipment. In this respect, the company is run for the benefit of the shareholders.
The original Articles of Association can still be seen in the Yellow Cabs office and the copy of those first signatures can be seen below.
Since those early days the company has grown to over 60 vehicles and drivers.
For many years Yellow Cabs operated from the famous yellow hut in St Saviours road, however in 1998 they moved to to Le Breton Lane where they stayed until April 2019 when the business relocated to much needed new offices in Rue des Pres Trading Estate.
In 2016 saw the end of an era when the company was finally computerised. This came after 41 years of paper, manual tickets, pigeon holes and bull dog clips. The introduction of the TaxiCaller electronic booking and dispatch system brought better levels of service to the customer along with efficiency savings in the office. It also reduced the radio traffic allowing a much quieter journey. This major improvement would form the basis from which we would build from so as we could meet our future challenges.
In 2018 the use of the word Committee was dropped and the more modern term Board of Directors was adopted. 2018 also saw the launch or our passenger App and to date many customers have embraced this new easy way to book a taxi. Many developments are planned for the App and they are planned to be introduced in 2020. Our slogan "Effortless Booking in the Palm of your Hand" we think says it all.
Through 2019 and early 2020 the fleet grew to over 60 vehicles and continues to grow to this day. The fleet includes over 20 AV's "Accessible Vehicles" showing our commitment to the disabled taxi user, we also have many multi-seaters vehicles carrying up to 8 passengers.
There are many and new innovative improvements planned for 2020 and these are planned to be introduced throughout the year.
