To provide low cost taxi services in communities that lack sufficient public transportation options.
Lack of affordable transportation options is a problem that plagues rural communities across the nation. While the City of Las Vegas, NM provides public transportation through Meadow City Express, it is often difficult for this service to meet the demands of the community due. Meadow Cab aims to help fill this gap by offering expanded hours of operation during the evenings and weekends, and providing flexible service on demand that does not need to be booked days/weeks in advance.
Since starting Meadow Cab, we have found that that this service can benefit the community in the following key areas...
Reducing unemployment by providing access to jobs that are inaccessible via public transit
Preventing social isolation among the elderly and disabled by providing transport to social and leisure activities
Promoting public safety and reducing alcohol related accidents by providing rides to and from liquor establishments
Boosting the economy by making local businesses more accessible to tourists and locals
Improving overall quality of life within the community by offering a convenient method of going to the store and running errands
