Phoenix, AZ, July 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- New center features improved amenities, services for independent contractor drivers
Discount Cab, subsidiary of Total Transit, has today opened a new, state-of-the-art facility next to its Glendale headquarters. The new facility is to be used exclusively by the company’s independent contractor cab drivers. A ribbon cutting, held in conjunction with members of the Glendale Chamber of Commerce, officially opened the center. Among the center’s features are a new internet lounge and facilities for improved driver check-in and check-out. The second story of the facility is now home to the new Discount Cab call center, one of the largest taxicab call centers in the nation with 24/7 and multilingual support.
Discount Cab anticipates a ten percent increase in need over the next year for drivers, so company recruiters were on-site during the grand opening to meet with those seeking a new career as a driver. A raffle and lease specials were held for existing drivers during the grand opening, and social media contests will be held all week to celebrate the opening of the new center.
Reflecting the company’s mantra of being “Safe, Clean & Green,” Discount Cab featured a green carpet at the opening event, which, along with vintage vehicles, provided for excellent photo opportunities. A live DJ set the tone for a fun day of food, a screening of the film Taxi, networking, guided tours of the facility and more.
“I’m very proud to open this new Driver Center next door to our corporate headquarters,” stated Total Transit CEO Craig Hughes. “The new center shows our employees and independent contractor drivers that we care about their success. It is also a symbol of all that we’ve accomplished together and anticipates our continuing growth.”
