Columbus Yellow Cab cares for their drivers and passenger’s safety. For this reason, Columbus Yellow Cab will no longer be operating 24 hours a day. Beginning Sunday June 28, 2020, they will close each day at 11 PM and reopen at 6 AM.
They are focusing their resources and efforts to remain a trusted on-time provider. They will be evaluating the situation weekly for next steps based on their coordinated efforts.
