Cool Bike Friendly Cab in Fort Worth

I started driving a taxi in Fort Worth a little oer a week ago. One of my friends who owns a bike shop asked if I was available for sag support. I'm getting cards printed to leave at all the local bike shops for just that purpose.

I drive a mini-van with foldable, removable rear and center seats. I am installing quick-release clamps inside today so I can carry 2 bikes standing up and 3 passengers at the same time. I have already been flagged down by 2 mountain bike riders who needed a ride back to their car after a mechanical.

If you ride in Tarrant County, save my number in your phone 682-234-2268. Normal cab rates apply, but I don't start the meter until you're loaded up.

+1, very cool.

I grew up in Fort Worth (but current live near Seattle); I'm often back in town to visit friends & family. I'll keep your number in my contacts Just In Case. Thanks!

MMach5, the friend I mentioned who suggested it was Bernie. Trinity was the first shop to have some of my cards.

I live in North Dallas so I may never call you but I appreciate what you are doing so I am going to punch your number into my phone and if I ever have a need, I will call. Even if I don't have my bike.
