Local Cab Woes
I love Rockaway, I truly do. I don’t even mind the hour-plus commute to the city because we get to come home to paradise. On the flip side, you can’t have paradise without fixing the issues, so I wanted to reach out in the hopes that honest discussion could help fix something that is broken in this community.
Rockaway cab companies are becoming more and more difficult to ride in. I understand there is pressure from Uber, etc., but in my mind, that should only make them strive to be better. When we call for cabs, we are greeted by a rude dispatcher, then, if the cab arrives when promised (50/50), you can count on a smoking driver, a dirty vehicle, or the worst….having to pick up two to three other passengers
