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 a week.

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 accounts.

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, metered rates.

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 Lincoln.

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 me to 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!
