Temporary Suspension of Service Hours
Unfortunately, due to ongoing lack of taxi operators and dispatchers, Running, Inc., who has a contract with the City to operate the Portage Cab, will temporarily suspend taxi service between the hours of 12:00 Midnight and 5:00 a.m. Portage Cab is one of the few 24 hour/365 day shared ride taxi systems operated in the State. Due to lack of applicants for both taxi operator and dispatcher, Running, Inc. will suspend the service hours starting May 15, 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to return to 24 hour service. As of May 15, 2022 Portage Cab will provide service 7 days/week from 5:00 am to 12:00 midnight.
A resumption of this service will occur when Running, Inc. is able to hire a sufficient number of operators and dispatchers to provide reliable, daily service. The contracted hours to operate between 12 midnight and 5:00 am will be re-allocated to provide additional taxi service during peak ridership periods. The re-allocation of additional hours to peak ridership periods during weekdays is intended to decrease wait times for passengers who request a ride. We strongly encourage interested persons to apply for the open Taxi Operator or Dispatcher positions (part-time or full-time) with Portage Taxi.
