Hi! My name is Sherrie, but you can call me Ree. I'm a
driver for AAA YELLOW CAB/KING CAB (we just merged) in
Covina, California. I drive from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM, 7 days
Since the merger with King Cab, we are
running 35 to 45 cabs per shift, including 12 hour lease
drivers, 24 hour lease drivers and several owner/operators.
Leases average $50.00 for a 12 hour shift, $80.00 for a 24
hour shift and $300.00/week for owner/operators. We also
pay our own fuel, a $5.00/day bond, $15.00/week for bar
coupons and 10% of all credit card and voucher
There is some discussion going on about
raising our meter rates for the first time in 9 years.
Currently, our drop is $1.30 for the first 1/8 mile, $0.20
for each additional 1/8 mile and $0.20 for each 40 seconds
of wait/traffic time. Other than that, we have no special,
We run a strange mix of vehicles
including Chevy Caprices from the late '80's to mid '90's,
late model Ford Crown Victorias, a couple of Ford vans and
our very own "Limocab," a yellow (blech!) stretch
Being the ONLY female driver with the
company presents some problems, but they are few and minor
in nature. We have had a couple of other women drivers in
the past year or so, but they didn't last long. I've really
found no resistance to women drivers, either from the male
drivers or the customers, something I was a bit surprised
by at first.
Anyway, after months of promises, I've
finally gotten around to puting this site in some kind of
order. I've added a bunch of new links, a guestbook, an
email discussion list, a memorial page and some strange
stuff I thought you might
find of interest.
If you have a site you would like
link to or know of one that would be of interest to
visitors here, or if you'd just like to say "hi!," drop me
an emil. I'd love to hear from you!
