Job Description for Cab Driver

A cab driver is a person who operates a taxi or car for hire. Cab drivers typically work as part of a cab company. Depending on the employer and city, the driver will typically be dispatched to pick up riders and accounts and transport them to their respective destinations. Most cab drivers are paid via a metered system, in which the price a fare pays is determined by an electronic meter set within the car. Some jurisdictions and companies use set fares to areas like airports. In some cities, cab drivers can simply be hailed curbside, rather than dispatched via phone call.
