In honor of Labor Day, I'm writing a review of a great small business in Providence. American Cab is my go to cab company. It's a one man operation run by John the owner, but he does have another guy who covers when he isn't working (and I've also had a good experience with him). John took me to my early morning airport flights for eight months (I can't believe I did that for so long), and he was early or on time for every trip, even the ones when I left at 4:30am. He has a nice cab, drives safely, takes the direct route, and is just a nice friendly guy.
I'm a person who usually will take public transit, just because I've had such bad experiences with unreliable cabs, but there is no way to get to T.F. Greene airport at 4:30am without a car. With John, I was so much less stressed about getting to the airport than I would have been otherwise.
The number for American Cab is (401) 487-2111
Since he's a one man shop, if you know ahead of time that you'll need a cab, call him the day before.
(I received no compensation for this review.)
