Inc. a business that owns and operates the 1-888-TAXIGUY telecommunication
infrastructure. Founded in 1998 and based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada,
1-888-TAXIGUY is a nation-wide network of 425 taxicab companies linked
together through a single, easy-to-remember toll-free phone number.
1-888- TAXIGUY was formed through the partnership of TAXIGUY Inc. and Molson Canada. As the founding sponsor, the leading brewer decided to make TAXIGUY the cornerstone of its Don't Drink and Drive awareness efforts.
The concept of TAXIGUY, Inc. sprang from the experience of the founder, Justin Raymond who saw an opportunity with social benefits in a common inconvenience. While working and traveling in different North American cities Justin, like many other travelers, found that he rarely knew the phone number for a taxicab company. Based on this simple observation, Justin undertook in-depth research on the taxi industry and developed a business plan and model for Taxiguy Inc. The result was 1-888-TAXIGUY.
1-888-TAXIGUY is available in both of Canada's official languages with
1-888-TAXISVP (taxi, please) serving francophone customers.
The company’s mission is
To provide Canadian businesses and consumers with a variety of easy-to-use ‘action tools’ to help facilitate the act of arranging and paying for quality taxicab service anywhere in Canada in an effort to significantly reduce the incidences of impaired driving.
Molson Canada, founding sponsor since 1998.
