Driver & Veteran Owned in Taxi Business Since 1946

The outbreak of Coronavirus Covid 19 is a public health emergency that Radio Cab takes extremely seriously.  To continue to provide safe transportation and delivery service to the Portland Metro Area and Vancouver during this difficult time, Radio Cab has taken several important steps to keep our passengers and drivers safe.

Radio Cab has provided written materials to all our drivers about how to avoid catching and spreading the virus that contains best practices from the CDC and the World Health Organization.

We have made hand sanitizer available to all our drivers at no cost to them.

Our cabs are cleaned and disinfected frequently.  Unlike ride-share companies, Radio Cab sees its vehicles and drivers daily.  We can provide cleaning supplies, help, and guidance to ensure the cabs are properly cleaned and disinfected.  That includes between each fare and, more thoroughly, at the end of each driver’s shift.

We are working with our medical account customers to make sure we can continue to meet their needs for critical medical transportation of both people and supplies.

Radio Cab has told all drivers who are sick to self-quarantine and not drive for 14 days or until they are healthy, whichever is longer.  Don’t work if you are not 100% healthy! Radio Cab sees its drivers daily and can assess their health personally. Unlike ride-share companies, we do not have to wait for notification of positive test results (which, given the shortage of tests, might not even happen) before removing drivers from the road if they do not voluntarily self-isolate.  Although this has not been a problem. If we see a driver who shows any signs of sickness at all, we can and will send them home to protect the public.

The company is constantly monitoring the ongoing situation and updating our policies and procedures as new information becomes available from the CDC and the World Health Organization.

As a driver-owned company that has been part of the Portland community for almost 80 years, Radio Cab has helped Portlanders, including the most vulnerable, get to where they need to go safely through many different types of crises.  We are committed to being the safest transportation and delivery option in Portland during this pandemic.

Thank you for choosing Radio Cab!  We are constantly working to serve you better.
