- What are the advantages of setting up an account?
Since there is no charge to set up an account and you only get charged for when you use the service, in most cases the reason for setting up an account is for convenience. You will receive your own taxi vouchers which are simply presented to the driver each time you use the service. You will also receive a detailed invoice that only needs to be paid monthly.

- I have a young child, do your taxis have a child safety seat?
The City of Toronto has determined that it would be too difficult to comply with this requirement as child safety seat sizes vary from new born to toddlers. If you have your own child seat please inform the City Taxi Customer Service Representative when you call for a taxi and the driver will be instructed to assist with securing the seat in the taxi.
- I was told my taxi would arrive within ten minutes. It has now been longer what should I do?
In most cases we will be able to provide service within ten minutes so this should not be an issue. It is also are intention to provide our customers with the most accurate waits times as possible. However if there is a service delay the best thing to do is recall if you have been waiting longer than ten minutes. When the recall is made we can then provide further information as to when your taxi will arrive.
