Yellow Taxi Service's adept drivers navigate crowded city streets and soar down open highways to safely convey passengers to their final destination 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. After clients call to reserve a cab, drivers reach the pickup location in 10–12 minutes, the average amount of time it takes to tie 600 pairs of shoes. Cabs can beat a speedy path to restaurants, bars, and shopping destinations, and they can also complete transfers to and from hotels, hospitals, and landfills. In addition to transportation to and from Oakland International Airport, San Jose International Airport, and San Francisco International Airport, drivers can also whisk passengers through the rolling Napa Valley hills for wine tours.
