Largest Michigan Cab Company

Checker Cab

The largest cab company in Michigan, Checker Cab is the only company capable of serving all of Detroit's 147 square miles. We have been in business since 1921 and have operated out of our headquarters at 2128 Trumbull Avenue in Detroit, Michigan since the early 1930s. If you're in Detroit, there's probably a Checker Cab nearby.

Checker Cab operates its own radio and digital dispatch systems that handle 10,000 calls per day and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including all holidays. We're there when you need us - and often before you need us.

Checker Cab prides itself on its extensive safety programs. It exceeds state and city requirements for the insurance of a vehicle-for-hire. New Checker Cab drivers must undergo a background screen that includes criminal records, substance abuse records, motor vehicle records and drug testing using advanced and state recommended procedures.

New and veteran drivers are subject to a rigorous driver-training program. This includes a defensive driving program held in-house by qualified instructors, customer service skills, use of taxi meters and dash-mounted computers and an extensive course focusing on passenger and driver safety.
