The Yellow Cab of Columbus fleet is comprised of nearly 200 vehicles ranging from standard Crown Victoria taxis to paratransit vehicles, a new and emerging fleet of electric Prius cars, livery and van vehicles.
The fleet is growing and, though our Crown Victoria cars still have good life span, we are working our way through them to upgrade their fuel efficiency using propane fuel modification kits. This work is almost complete. As the Crown Victoria fleet ages, we’ll replace them with the Prius vehicles which have been heavily researched for efficiency (up to 50 MPG) and guest comfort. They are emerging as the industry choice and will be a huge benefit to our driver partners in containing and reducing fuel costs.
Our ten paratransit vehicles are state-of-the-art. We are the only privately held transportation company in Central Ohio with these vehicles. The feedback on them has been nothing short of ecstatic. For passengers in wheelchairs accustomed to rear-loading van-style transport, Yellow Cab’s paratransit vehicles are a completely new and dignified experience.
Wheelchairs are wheeled through the side and the passenger guest can ride in the front passenger position. For some, this is the first time they have had the experience of riding face-forward in a front seat orientation. Up to four additional people can ride in the rear of the paratransit taxi.
Our focus has been and will continue to be fuel efficiency, comfort and convenience when growing our fleet.
