Info Services

Information/Services:

To all the people who have used my service over the years, very muchly appreciated, Cal!

Notice of increase of $20.00 plus Fares please see Rates page.

Virus Protection Installed:
I still have my holeless plastic barrier in place(Oct., 18th, 2021) and will be for some time to come. It is very important for people to understand this cause with the taxi driver keeping himself protected it protects future passengers cutting down on all wide-spread infections. There are 4 vents in the ceiling in the back of the 2015 Grand Caravan SXT  for heat and AC. Windows will be open slightly. Even with complete vaccine requirements it is still recommended to wear face masks, good hygiene and social distancing in closed areas or even outside with large gatherings where any virus can sometimes be undetected! My vehicle is always in good working order!

Payment Options: Google Pay, Apple Pay, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Interac/Flash(via Square), e-transfer and Cash. Additional charge of $1.00 for use of Interac/Flash, $1.50 for credit cards. $4.00 fee for every $100.00 when paying with credit card. You can tap your card through the plastic barrier no problem but have your card set to tap payments of $100.00 plus or pay in advance.

X-mas day or Jan., 1st:
$75.00 additional charge applies if travelling on Dec., 25th or Jan., 1st on fares $75.00 plus.

Two Safety Measures:

  1. Holeless plastic barrier.
  2. Debit/credit card payment options tap through the plastic barrier.

1. Holeless Plastic Barrier:
I really put a lot of effort in having my holeless plastic barrier tight all the way around. I have one single piece of plastic (2 or 3 mm) that runs from side to side and from top to bottom which is reinforced along with wood at the bottom to prevent people from kicking out the plastic. And a plastic carpet runner that people use in their home entry way that runs halfway up to protect the first layer of plastic.

2. Debit/Credit Card, Three Payment Options and Below Payment Options Accepted:

1. Tap through the plastic barrier (debit/credit card, if your cab fare is going to be over $100.00, you have to have your card setup to make $100.00 plus payments. No one has had a problem tapping through the plastic and I have had this payment option since Feb., 2020.

2. You can provide me with your credit card (only) information and I can key in your information to make your payment, I would need your credit card number, expiry date (mm/yy) and the cvv-three digits on the back next to the signature panel.

3. Payment Request that I can send you via email, credit card only: Enter your email, phone number, credit card(cc) info-cc number/expiry date (mm/yy)/cvv, and a postal code. The “cvv” is the three digits on the back next to the signature panel of your credit card.

Deliveries:
Will deliver everything except alcohol or cannabis.

In Isolation:
If your in isolation for two weeks you can order your groceries online at the Superstore in Bridgewater and I will deliver them to you, door step drop off. Payment in advance for credit card or e-transfer.

Max 5 Passengers:
No one can ride in the front with the driver so currently only able to transport 5 passengers.  Debit/credit card payment options tap through barrier. If paying with cash please pay through the passengers side window and wear your mask. I disinfect my vehicle regularly. I am doing airport runs but people coming in have no contact with me where they pay by debit/credit card or e-transfer.

Thank you,
Cal

  • Some questions to consider:
  • Cal’s Taxi is located in Bridgewater, NS, where is your occasion taking place?
  • Is the reception located where the wedding is, within same community or which community?
  • The main location(s) of the occasion should be within a 30km radius of Bridgewater.
  • Are most fares going to be in a 5 to 10 to 30km radius of the main location(s) and are there going to be any fares beyond the 30kms that you may possibly know of?
  • Last fare is at 1am not to exceed 75kms.
  • Any fare over 75kms should be leaving no later than 12am and not exceed 115kms.
  • Do you need to reserve different time slots or are you looking at having transportation for a set amount of hours.
  • For example: reserve between 12pm to 3pm and again at 4pm to 7pm and again at 10pm to 1am. Or 4pm to 7pm and again a 11pm to 1am. Or 10pm to 1am.
  • You could reserve from say 5pm to 1am but I would need 2 hours off inbetween but not two hours straight.
  • To reserve my taxi for weddings estimate cost of the day to be paid in advance, if cost of fares/waiting times is lower than the advance payment will be sent back to you!

Summary in order to estimate a quote:

  • You have the pricing on per/km, wait time and additional passengers.
  • I need location(s) of reception and wedding?
  • Estimate of how many fares from to main wedding locations, this can be a general idea?
  • How many reserve time slots?
  • Number of passengers per fare?
  • What fares will/may be happening 12am on, this is important where there could be long fares involved!?
  • To reserve my taxi for weddings estimate cost of the day to be paid in advance, if cost of fares/waiting times is lower than the advance payment will be sent back to you!
  • Waiting time clock starts while not doing a fare, stops once doing a fare.
  • Can take your credit card info, and manual input, contactless payment!
  • 4 vents in the rear in the ceiling for heat/AC behind the holeless plastic barrier.
