    Taxi ride from airport

    This is a total shot in the dark....I am looking to try to contact the taxi driver who took me from the airport to the Marriott Surf Club
    on Friday January 19th approximately 3pm. I have no receipt and no name lol.
    Is anyone aware of how they work in Aruba? Are they all self employed? Do they report to anyone?
    The only information I have is personal ...He is from the Bronx, NY, his son is a JetBlue pilot, and he is widowed.
    Sounds like a crazy request and probably is but hoping I can reach him.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    most if not all are self employed.
    some have formed a cooperative type of business.....banding together and working as a team. A1 Taxi services for example.

    you may want to contact forum member Taxidriver by private message on this forum and make the inquiry to him.

    or
    maybe someone here knows of this gentleman.

    I was thinking you could message A1 Taxi service or call them. They have a facebook page as well. Its a small cabby world with less than 500 of them...good luck!

    Actually you are correct. I am a widow as well and he did want to connect while I was there but I did not take his contact information. However, I have regretted that for the past month and would like to find him. We had a wonderful conversation and he was a very nice gentleman.

    I did a quick Google search for "Aruba taxi facebook" and several popped up. Maybe you could try posting on them? Good luck in your search!
