Rockland Taxi remains all-female and locally owned
Rockland Taxi is Clarence-Rockland’s newest business and its main focus is to put its clients first, while keeping all aspects of the business as local as possible.
From the beginning, Bradford Cyr and Laurie Marion, co-owners of Rockland Taxi, were headstrong on putting their clientele first by ensuring they employed the right kind of drivers for all types of clientele. The result is now an-all female driving staff.
“Our selection for our drivers was quite specific,” said Cyr. “We were very, very careful of the type of personality that we picked; we wanted to have the type of drivers that everybody would be comfortable with.” Although it was not intended to solely hire female drivers, that is how things turned out. In fact, a male driver was hired for the overnight shifts, but has since left the company on his own accord.
