After several weeks of being out of service for significant repairs to its engine, Batavia Cab's lone cab is back in service.
Co-owner James Soggs said the cab just went back on the road today.
There were reports of Batavia Cab being out of business, but Soggs said the company hadn't closed, it just didn't have a vehicle it could put on the road.
There's been a lot of turmoil among local cab companies over the past two years with three or four companies opening and closing.
B-Town Taxi, Affordable Cab and Mike's* all appear to be out of business (we've confirmed B-Town is out of business). The only locally owned cab company we know to be currently operating in Genesee County is Batavia Cab.
Multiple readers contacted The Batavian over the past few weeks noting that there no longer seemed to be an operational cab company locally, creating a hardship on a lot of people, so the return of Batavia Cab should please a lot of people.
*I remember another company that started up two years ago and is now apparently out of business, but can't remember the company's name.
