It is the only company capable of serving all of Detroit’s one hundred forty-seven square miles. Checker Cab has been in business since 1921 and has operated out of their headquarters at 2128 Trumball Avenue in Detroit, Michigan since the early 1930s. Thanks to the central location, checker cabs are accessible and convenient throughout the Detroit region.

Around the Clock Availability
Checker Cabs are accessible any time, any day of the year, meaning they are available when customers need them, often before they need them. Checker Cab operates its own radio and digital dispatch systems that handle 10,000 calls per day and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays.
Extensive Safety Standards
As a Soave Enterprises affiliate, Checker Cab prides itself on its extensive safety programs and dedication to excellence. Checker Cab exceeds state and city requirements for the insurance of a vehicle-for-hire. New Checker Cab drivers must undergo a background screen that includes criminal records, substance abuse records, motor vehicle records, and drug testing using advanced and state recommended procedures.
Soave Enterprises’ fleet at Checker Cab consists of late model General Motors and Ford vehicles. Each one is city inspected and approved to operate as a taxicab. Checker Cab was the first to add 7-passenger minivans to diversify the fleet and accommodate groups with 4-7 passengers. Each cab is equipped with a two-way radio and state-of-the-art computer dispatch system.
Highly-Trained Team of Professionals
New and veteran drivers are subject to a rigorous driver-training program. This includes a defensive driving program held in-house by qualified instructors, customer services skills, use of taxi meters, and dash-mounted computers and an extensive course focusing on passenger and driver safety.
Checker Cab prides itself on its team of mechanics, technicians, engineers and maintenance staff employed at historic Trumbull Garage and Bagley locations. Not only does the certified personnel keep Checker’s nearly 500 cabs in good working order, they also service vehicles belonging to other fleet owners who have work agreements with Checker Cab.
