Every business has to start somewhere.
For us, we started with four cars dispatched from a shed on Fairview Street in Burlington. Gerald and Lise Wallace, parents of Scott Wallace (President, Burlington Taxi), would receive calls for taxi service to the family’s home at all hours.
Since then, we have been on the road every single day for 50 years straight and have grown to a team of nearly 200 with more than 50 vehicles.
On May 8, 2018, Burlington Taxi celebrates a lifetime dedication of family, colleagues and customers that have brought us where we are today. In the last 50 years, we have seen tremendous change and growth in Burlington. We have weathered many storms – together. We have faced new roads and new challenges – together. And through it all, we have relied on the continuous support of our customers.
As we look to the future, we know the taxi transportation landscape is rapidly evolving. Although new, unregulated and unlicensed providers now operate in the market, we stand by the quality and safety standards of our business.
We are proud of our history in Burlington and take to heart our responsibility for moving people and their things around this city in the safest, fastest and most pleasant way possible.
