A#1 Cab Dispatch is launching "A#1 Cab- Taxi Booking" APP in November 2014. This APP will be for Android &  iPhone. The QR codes will be available on all of the taxi's and on this page once it's released. 

This unique taxi APP will provide the customer with real-time digital ordering of an A#1 Cab. The customer will be able to view the driver en route. There will be no need to call dispatch to order a taxi anymore, but optional.

Once you sign up, it's quick, efficient, and worry free. Customers will still pay the driver for the ride, the APP will not do that for you. All pick ups are digitally dispatched automatically to the closest available taxi in your area.

Only customers in our 67 town service area will be able to order a taxi via our smartphone app. The APP will not support other communities we do not currently service. The taxi orders will be automatically cancelled out if the pickup is not in our service area. Please check the "service area" page for the current towns/cities we service.

Unlike other ride APP's, all taxi's contracted with A#1 Cab Dispatch are commercially insured to the State of Illinois taxi insurance standards. Which means, the taxis have proper commercial vehicle insurance at ALL times.

A#1 Cab dispatched its very first ride in October 1985. This unique dispatch team now serves more than sixty suburban cities and towns in the suburbs of Chicago.

Our customers clearly understand that there is a difference in quality transportation and that's why they call us.

Introducing new Hybrid vehicles in 2014. Unveiling the "A#1  Cab-Taxi APP"  in late 2014- with specific rider options. Adding ten new towns on the roster in 2015. Just hang on for the ride! 

  • All vehicles dispatched by A#1 Cab Dispatch Inc. are independently owned and operated by individuals or corporations.

  • A#1 Cab does NOT hire or employ drivers. We place drivers with owner operators to lease taxi's.

  • A#1 Cab Dispatch inspects the taxi's leased within the fleet for general appearance, working meter and toplight. All taxi's are required to be inspected at safety lanes chosen by different municipalities. 

  Our Service is:

  • The co-ordination of transportation between the taxi on the street working and available; with the need and demand for rides.

  • Our Dispatch Company works hard to insure that the demand/response for taxicabs are processed quickly and efficiently. 
  • A#1 Cab Dispatch and its self-contracted drivers or owner operators do NOT transport minors under the age of 16 without an adult, or are involved in any type of school transportation.

New Hybrid Vehicles

Brand new Camry Hybrids are replacing the Ford Crown Victoria's within the fleet. So much better for the environment, and better fuel mileage for the drivers. This is why the fuel surcharges were dropped in June 2014.
