Do I have to make advance reservations?

No. Reservations are welcome, but not required. If you have an important appointment or a scheduled flight to or from the airport, a reservation makes it easier for us to get you where you need to be on time. We provide 24/7 "On-Demand" service - you call, we come!
Please call us at 970-259-4818 for a pickup!

Can I bring my pet in a taxi?

Yes. However, there is an additional charge of $5.00 per pet and the pet must be in a pet carrier.

Can the taxi carry my bike?

Yes. As long as the bicycle can be safely loaded into the taxi without causing damage. Durango Cab currently does not have bike racks installed on its vehicles, but if there is enough demand, we will certainly add them.

What if I call for a taxi and there is no answer?

Sometimes the call volume is high enough you may not get through or you may get voice mail. If this happens, please call us again or leave a message with your name and number so we can get back to you ASAP. Also, at times the main line will be forwarded to one of the drivers that is in service and as you know how cellular service is out here, we will lose it from time to time as we travel about the area. We apologize in advance and ask to just keep trying, you shouldn’t have to try more than twice.

How long will it take to be picked up?

If you have made an advance reservation, your cab should arrive at the scheduled time or earlier. Normally our response time averages 15 minutes or less but obviously will take longer depending on the call volume and distances. The call taker should always give an estimated time of arrival and someone will stay in touch with you if there are delays.
