If you have a mobile phone, dial one of the hotlines below that will direct you to a customer service officer if you're a first time caller. Or if you're a repeated caller, the cab company will likely prompt you to select one of you previous booking locations. Your taxi request is likely to arrive within the next 3 to 15 minutes, depending on the weather (Long wait if it's raining), your location (is it out of the way or whether the road is packed with traffic.) and your luck.
