Editorial review from Citysearch 6/22/2012

THE WORST!!!! Me and my daughter would've waited an and a half had we not called another company. What pissed me off is 3 of their taxis came to the dunkin donuts in the same parking lot we were waiting in (nobody in the back) and when i asked all 3 said they were temporarily off duty and none of them came back to get us so finally i called All city or All State taxi or something like that and they came in 5minutes i was very satisfied with them their # is 2157447777 more

Lost suitcase!!! 2nd and Chestnut to York and Tulip. 8/7/2011

My name is Jan Ruk. On friday night I left my suitcase in a cab's trunk. We got picked up at 2nd and Chestnut and drove to York and Tulip. Please write here or call 646 532 0279. +16465320279 I am not sure which cab company it was, so I'm sending it to everyone, I'm desperate, I don't know how is possible that a taxi driver doesn't report the suitcase he found in his trunk. I just believe there are still good people out there and that maybe that taxi driver didn't see it was in there. All I have in the US is in that suitcase. Thank you. more

Recommend - helpful and courteous 5/31/2011

On a recent trip to Philly, my boss left her phone in the cab. I contacted the company and they immediately contacted the driver who located the phone. Not only did he hold on to the phone for my boss who was in town for just the day, he picked her up in the afternoon and returned her to the airport. Top notch service by the dispatcher and the driver. Thanks, Crescent! more

Crescent Cab - Credit Cards 12/24/2010

Why blame a minimal wage cab driver for refusing to accept a mode of payment that takes away 5% to 10% fee from his gross earnings and puts it in the hands of bankers and credit card companies, who get paid hefty bonuses. It is estimated that cab drivers have to pay roughly $50.00 a week as bank fees. That's $2,600 a year per driver! For people in the service industry or business, that would be the same reaction if the Government announced a 5% to 10% increase in the taxes they would have to pay. Or, what if employers started charging 5% service fee to do a direct deposit. Moral of the story: If you want to go cashless, let the consumer or credit card companies spend the bank fees for their convenience and not the immigrant taxi drivers. Or better still, bank fees should be paid by the federal government as they save money on printing bills. FYI, Las Vegas taxis charge customers a $3.00 surcharge on all credit card taxi trips. more

Beware Rude, Violent Drivers 9/10/2010

Something has GOT to be done about the attitudes of many of this city's taxi drivers when it comes to customers paying by credit card. This has become a crisis situation and it's starting to get dangerous. more

Cheating and Rude Driver - Avoid from airport! 8/10/2008

After arriving into Philadelphia International Airport at 1:30 am due to flight delays all afternoon and evening at PHL, I decided to take a cab. I hopped into the first open taxi, a mini van operated by Crescent Cab. Without consulting me, the driver stopped at the next taxi stand in the terminal, asking if anyone else was going downtown. A man responded and he ended getting into the cab with me. I was too tired to say anything. I had preferred to ride home alone, but figured that at least me and the other gentlemen would now save on our cab fare since the stated taxi rates are $28.50 flat rate into Center City plus $1 for each additional passenger. When we arrived at my building, the cabbie proceeded to tell me that I owed him $29. When I protested, citing the policy about shared cabs; he began to berate me about the fact that I would never have gotten home at this hour without him, that he had been working 13 hours already, etc. I tried to tell him that my not wanting to pay $29 had nothing to do with his decision to work a long day. I decided to speak to the other passenger in the car to warn him that the cabbie was going to try to charge him $29 as well. At this point the cabbie got even more irate and began to yell at me, asking me how much I was going to pay him - $10??? Because that was the type of person I was, that I didn't care, etc. He also insulted me and asked if I was trying to ask the other passenger out on a date because I was stopping to speak to him. Pros: He drove fast? Cons: Rude, cheating driver that yelled at me more

Horrible 2/22/2008

Crescent cab is terrible. I called them at 1215 and said i would like a cab for 115. they assured me that i would recieve a call when they were on their way. well, it got to be about 120 and i called back and the man said that he would have somebody on the way immediately. 15 minutes later, there was no call, no taxi, no anything. so i called another cab company and they picked me up promptly. I ended up missing my 2:00 train because of Crescent, and had to wait in the amtrak terminal for 4 and a half hours. Also, i had to pay an additional $30 for my new ticket because it was not paid for in advance. Do not rely on Crescent cab. more
