Like, Globo San Miguel, Servitaaxi is a family affair, The Gutierrez's, with mostly family operating the taxis. Their taxis on the most part are newer, roomier, some with air-conditioned and with the most mature and professional drivers in town. Their motto, "respuesta immediate," they always respond rapido. Their call-for-taxi rates are as follows: 40-pesos daytime, 80 pesos, 8 p.m. 'til midnight, (VIP Club member pay just 60 during that time slot) and 100-pesos, midnight 'til 6 a.m. Arrangements can be made to have unmarked cars for local trips or to nearby towns with private drivers. Identify yourself a a VIP Club member when you call! For super taxi service call: 152-5953 or 154-0538 anytime and for private unmarked car call 415-153-3498. Be safe, not sorry! Servitaxi's phone #s will shortly be posted on the Club's webpage in the "Other VIP discount" section.
