I was at emergency at one of the hospitals, put my phone on silent and left it on the cab seat on the way home. The driver found it and returned it to me about 20 minutes later. It is my life line. The cab number was 838 and I thank this driver so much for his kindness!! So thankful there are still people like this and that they drive for Checker. I have always had good experiences with Checker and this one was exceptional!!

It is freezing cold out tonight., I was cold and in pain. The dispatcher told the driver I needed assistants, I found out. THANK YOU! This wonderful young man who picked me up said sit back and relax you will be home soon, are you still cold. He was so pleasant, I thought I was driving with one of my sons. This young man is from India and drove cab701.What an excellent representative for Checker Cabs.

I just wanted to say out of all the Drivers from Checker cab that have assisted me Tahir (#1310) was the best. Unfortunately my hands were so cold I accidentally tapped the 4th star, in my opinion Tahir is the epitome of excellent customer service. He deserves all the stars and more.He spoke to my kids and made us laugh, as he noticed one of my kids was tired. He waited for me to pick up my kids and brought us home safely.To Tahir my daughter said you are so nice and was happy I gave you a little thank you I know it wasn’t substantial, I would ideally give more but I just wanted you to get a warm drink as you work outdoors.Stay safe and stay blessed for I know God will bless you abundantly. I left your team a message to pass on to you, for you are an amazing person. Keep doing what you do.Windsor Park Lady :)

Update .... THANK YOU to the outstanding driver that picked my family up at the airport! The vehicle was exceptionally clean and the driver was outstanding!Just downloaded the Checker App ... awesome! Was able to pre-book a time call to pick me up after the Flames game and knowing the car number was easy to make sure the car was for me. Only wish I could know who the driver was in advance. Recommend everyone "tap that app"!

Pre-booked Checker Cab pick-up at Stage West after the show. Booking time was 9:40 pm and driver arrived promptly at 9:40 pm! Couldn't ask for better service. Driver was courteous and drove us directly to our hotel nearby. Even though it wasn't long or expensive, the driver remained professional and advised that they service all requests. Well done. Will definitely use Checker next time as we are season ticket holders. I expect to receive the same level of service again, and again.

Checker Cabs have always been there for us when we needed to get somewhere! Whether it be to a gala, a girls night out, a party, to a friends house or in a great time of need like when my car broke down. Checker has always been quick to respond, on time, professional, personable and has always given me a sense of safety. Booking is so streamlined either by using the mobile app or just by picking up the phone to call. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK AND A BIG THANK YOU!
I have been using Checker Cabs for many years now they are my go to taxi company whenever I need a ride. Their vehicles are always clean and the drivers are always very friendly and professional. They always get me to my destination without surge pricing like certain other companies. I prefer to support local businesses rather than a big corporations that are not even from this city.

I've always had good experiences with Checker cab, they've been my go-to for cab services since I first started taking cabs back in the fun, younger days of going out all the time! Most recently I needed a pickup at a set time, the cab showed up 5 minutes before that and had me to my destination in plenty of time. Cab driver was friendly and professional. I will use Checker cabs every time!

I have used Checker Cabs, particularly when going to and from Calgary International Airport. I usually have an early morning flight and I would never take a chance with another service. The taxi driver always calls me upon arrival and is early, just to be safe. Thank you Checker Cab for always ensuring a smooth and trouble-free service!

As a mom Checker "Checks off" all my boxes when it comes to my children getting to and from a location safely, especially if they have been drinking. I know these drivers are monitored and are constantly taking courses to better themselves. I love the staff, the drivers and what this company stands for. =)

I was having some difficulties with the app which Layna went above and beyond to help fix. I was pleasantly surprised with the high level of customer service as she had provided me with a working solution promptly.Happy to use this company as the drivers are the most professional of all the cab companies and the cabs are always the cleanest as well.
