History Behind Gold Rush Taxi LLC
Gold Rush Taxi LLC was founded in 2011 by Lisa Matte and Tory Younghusband who recognized the need for a premium Taxi Cab Company here in El Dorado County and now in Amador County. Soon to be serving South Lake Tahoe and Folsom!! We started this company with an emphasis of being customer service oriented and having the reliability and safety for each and every customer.
Gold Rush Taxi LLC drivers are required to pass multiple quality-assurance checks to make certain that they are DRUG-FREE, FRIENDLY, RESPECTFUL, PUNCTUAL, and SELF-MOTIVATED. We only employ the best of the best and hope that we will exceed your expectations when you choose us for you transportation needs.
Our fleet is comprised of the white Scion xB, which are the little box cars you may see running around town. We also have touring, unlabeled cars for your convenience and luxury.
We make customer safety and security our FIRST and UTMOST PRIORITY at all times. We also have a close working relationship with local law enforcement and are currently working with the Placerville City Counsel to create NEW, STRICKER ordinances and laws in order to protect OUR community and visitors when using local taxi companies. We are also the ONLY taxi service in El Dorado and Amador Counties that have passed all TSA inspections in order to accommodate each traveler to their specific gate at the Sacramento International Airport.
Setting the Taxi Standards for El Dorado and Amador Counties
We here at Gold Rush Taxi LLC have set the standards for the local taxi companies in both Amador and El Dorado counties. These companies have branched off and copied our business model, then they claim to be the best and believe they are changing the industry after being in business for a short time well as the old saying goes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” We don’t “claim to dream about being the best”, it’s already been proven by you the public. Continue to ride with us and we’ll show you why we are your #1 taxi service.
