Who We Are

A taxi company is only as great as the people that drive it.

Our Team

We wouldn’t be here without our extremely hard working team: drivers, dispatchers, mechanical team, administration and operations staff whose only objective is to get you where you need to go in the fastest, safest and most pleasant way possible. It’s thanks to them that we keep this city moving 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

All drivers are fully licensed and trained to fulfill the Burlington Taxi Standards of Customer Service and Driver Safety. We take pride in offering prompt, courteous and reliable transportation services. Find out how we are Keeping You Safe in our taxis.

Our History

From its humble beginnings of four cars dispatched from the original Plains Road office, Burlington Taxi has grown to be the oldest taxi service in Burlington. Spanning over two generations, Burlington Taxi’s owner Scott Wallace will tell you, “there is no question, the secret to our longevity is the people operating this business. Every area of our organization is staffed with highly trained and skilled individuals that have been here for years, some since its inception in 1968.”

Located in the heart of the city, Burlington Taxi now operates out of a 12,000 sq. foot facility which is the hub for our drivers, dispatch, administration and mechanical personnel who serve our community.

Burlington Taxi values innovation, demonstrated by being a leader in developing taxi technology. More than twenty years ago, we helped design and develop a taxi reservation & dispatch software that  since revolutionized taxi companies around the world. In fact, our sophisticated technology runs in cities throughout North and South America, Europe, and the Middle East.

We were also one of the first Canadian taxi companies to launch a mobile APP, back in 2013. We continue to update and enhance our APP to make booking a taxi as quick and easy as possible.
