LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Let's put it bluntly, a New York, Chicago or Los Angeles taxi hasn't always had the best reputation in the world in certain quarters. Beverly Hills Cab Co. knows about that issue and it offers a simple solution: creating a taxi cab Los Angeles can love. It wants its customers to feel that they enjoy riding in a taxi cab in West Hollywood or anywhere else more than they would enjoy being ferried in their very own autos. That's not to say it's exactly easy. The company named for the famed home of the wealthy, famous, and beautiful has been laboring for some time to dispel the myth that all taxis cabs – and some taxi cab drivers – are not properly cleaned and unpleasantly odoriferous. Beverly Hills Cab Co. vehicles are carefully kept up to snuff by some of the most dedicated workers in all of greater Los Angeles. They carefully monitor every aspect of the car's interior and exterior to make sure it will be one taxi passengers will feel good about riding in. When a vehicle is kept this clean, the idea of a smelly cab starts to seem like one of the less funny jokes from a late night comic. Of course, there's no way to guarantee that every time a passenger steps into one of the company's cabs everything will go perfectly, but the company does everything it can to try and make sure that it does. Not only do Beverly Hills Cab Company drivers have to be safe drivers with clean records, they must be real experts when it comes to driving. A taxi cab in West L.A. needs to be driven by someone who really knows West L.A. and its traffic patterns. GPS has its place, to be sure, but a great taxi cab driver needs to be a true master of the road – the kind of person who reads the Thomas Brothers guide for fun. Of course, it's one thing to get to your destination, it's equally important to enjoy the ride. Beverly Hills Cab Co. drivers are not simply driving machines; they are friendly folks who are ready to provide just the kind of ride you are looking for. Moreover, they are smart about people and generally know what you want before you even have to say anything. If you want quiet, you'll get quiet. If you want to listen to a particular radio station or a particular type of music, that's fine.
