Experience Counts. County Cab’s History.

County Cab Yellow Cab History

County Cab has always led the way in improving its cab service both through adopting state-of-the-art technology or expanding its ability to serve the residents of the St. Louis metro area. Here are some of the milestones:

1935

County Cab started with three taxicabs.

1952

County Cab invested in a centralized service center in mid-St. Louis County that combined office, dispatch, vehicle maintenance and parking for its fleet of vehicles. We became more efficient.

1960

County Cab was the first to install two-way radios in every vehicle we operated. Customers were delighted at how quickly County Cabs responded to calls. It was a vast improvement over having telephones at designated areas.

1969

Surburban Cab was acquired and significantly increased the number of drivers and vehicles available for customers.

1973

County Cab was the first to use multiple voice channels that greatly increased the speed at which we were able to dispatch cabs. Customers were even more delighted.

1991

County Cab was the first St. Louis taxi cab company to install computer-based dispatching. This new system was capable of dispatching trips many times faster than a human being, with much more accuracy and reliability.

1999

County Cab was the first taxi cab company in St. Louis to install GPS (Global Positioning Systems) in each of its cabs. This satellite based service enables us to know the exact position of each cab at any given time. That’s why you, your children, or your frail grandparent can always feel safe and secure in one of our cabs.

2003

County Cab integrates Yellow Cab and the combined forces of the two companies provide faster and more responsive service to the full geographical area of St. Louis City and County.

2009

County Cab is the first taxi cab company to offer true online ordering and SMS text message ordering. Unlike other services, our system is truly integrated.

2010

County Cab is one of the first taxi cab companies in the nation to offer its own smart phone app. Click to order, Track your cab on the way to you, and even pay with your stored credit card. Download the ST LOUIS TAXI app and start using it today!

2015

County Cab offers a live text agent. A live agent is ready to assist by texting to 314-991-5300!

Whether you order a cab by calling us, by web, or by mobile phone, you will receive SMS text updates letting you know the status of your order!

That’s service the County Cab way!
