More and more drivers are driving for Checker! Isn’t it time you did?
Sure, there are choices in YYC but it’s Checker that attracts professional drivers. We have flexible hours, the most taxi stands, the newest technology, City of Calgary and School Board accounts and staff that make the drivers a priority.
We’re always making additions to our APP and enhancing the technology in our cars. Recently, we installed over 900 new tablets giving the customers a variety of ways to pay for their trip. What about the Checker Bike Racks? We pick up about 500-600 trips per month, putting more money in your pockets.
We’re the only taxi company in Calgary with In-House training for our drivers. We want to make certain not only is your car road ready, but you are as well. With our new online portal, applying to be a Checker driver couldn’t be easier. Click on this link to apply. We have seven Road Supervisors assisting drivers and customers. All of our cabs are installed with video and audio technology. Checker does everything to keep our drivers safe. Year after year, we service upwards of 4 M trips, including thousands of pickups for our corporate clients. We also have standby trips making picking up customers a breeze.
Do we like to have fun at Checker? You bet we do – we host six BBQs a year, inviting our drivers and families. We work with Tourism Calgary and give out hundreds of Front Line Experience passes for free – get to know the city on our dime. The more you know, the more you can tell your customers. Do you love the circus? For the past three years, Checker has given out 1,000 Royal Canadian Circus tickets to drivers so they can enjoy quality time with their loved ones.
We advertise and support our local teams, cheering them to victory and driving the fans home after the big win. We even have drivers wearing their Flames jerseys on game day to show our Calgary pride. You might even see Checker Cabs flying the Flames, Stamps or Cavalry flags on their cars.
During Stampede, you will see Checker drivers #rightaroundthecorner, dressed up like cowboys, in decorated cabs making sure we pick up everyone. When the parties wind down, it is a sea of yellow at every hot spot.
We love Social at Checker. You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. Be on the lookout for the Checker SMART car – another way we advertise for you. The little car is everywhere, taking donations to local charities and parking in busy spots. It is the most photographed car in the city!
Checker is a proud member of the Chamber of Commerce. You’ll find Checker volunteering and working with Tourism Calgary to promote visitors to our city. When we say we are everywhere, we really are everywhere.
We have weekly training classes, held at 316 Meridian RD SE. Fill out your application online, book yourself into a class and we’ll see you there.
