When you see the familiar yellow lights beaming from a Ride Taxi, chances are good you not only know the driver behind the wheel, but you also have Ride Taxi’s number on speed dial.

Heading into season five of operations in the valley, Ride Taxi is proud to be a service built by locals, for locals, and for visitors who aspire to be locals. Known for its upbeat dispatchers, friendly and anecdotal drivers, and an approach to sourcing as many things locally as possible, Ride Taxi strives to walk the talk in providing a top-notch service while supporting the community.

According to owners Nash and Lynnea Pillsbury, the coming season will feature more of all of the good things you’ve come to expect from Ride Taxi. “We’re committed to staying true to our customer service-focused roots, and to keeping our technology as current as possible through our app, online booking capabilities and website,” Nash said. There will also be some new fleet additions this year, as well as enhanced features within the cabs, such as wifi integration. “We are always striving to be better. It’s our way of doing right by our riders and showing our appreciation,” Lynnea said.

Ride Taxi operates 24/7/365, and offers three ways to book: via phone at 970-949-1111, online at, or via the “Ride Taxi Vail” app, available through iTunes or Google Play.
