Okay this has me steaming mad. My girlfriend catches a cab from my sons daycare to work and then from work to daycare when she is done. She has been using the same cab company for quite some time so I am sure they know that she needs to pick up our son before 4:00 at the latest. Today the cab came and picked her up at 3:30, proceeded to pick up another passenger with my g/f still in the cab, dropped off that fare, picked up another fare, dropped that fare off then finally dropped off my girlfriend at my sons daycare just before 4:00. Now if anyone is familiar with public transportation in Sault MI, they have Dial-A-Ride instead or buses on a fixed time schedule and route. She made a time call for one to pick her up at daycare and missed that time call because the cab company decided to double dip. So after missing the time call for Dial-A-Ride, she had to push a stroller home in about half a foot of snow home from daycare, which is about 1 mile.
I think that the cab companies shouldnt be able to "double dip" like that. You are paying the cab to pick you up and drop you off, not to pick up someone else, drop them off just to save on gas.
