On Thursday April 5, 2018, Burlington Taxi was awarded with the Mayor’s Community Service Award. Nominees were considered on how they contributed to Burlington quality of life, making Burlington a better place in which to live and work.
Some examples of our involvement in the previous year included:
- collecting more than 4,000 socks for people in need;
- advocating for a level playing field to keep riders safe and providing fairness for taxi operators, drivers, and our community; and
- support for local organizations like the Halton Learning Foundation‘s Back to School Campaign, Treats in Our Streets, Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation, and local Rotary Clubs.
Receiving this award is a great honour. Taking part in and supporting community initiatives in a bigger way is as vital as the transportation we provide. We are grateful for our drivers and staff who are truly the reason why we are so involved in the community.
Looking forward to the future
Finding meaningful ways to connect with, and give back to our city, to our customers, to our drivers & staff that have embraced and supported our business is always a fun challenge. Entering our 50th year in business this year, we look forward to continuing to support the community in 2018!
