Time Calls: Yellow Cab offers the option of "time calls" for the convenience of our customers. The vast majority of the time we are able to respond as requested, but the acceptance of a time call does not constitute a guarantee of service at a specific time. We cannot be sure of traffic, and weather conditions nor of equipment failures or staff inadequacies that may result in long delays or our inability to provide service in a timely manner.
