Fort Taxi and Delivery has finally gotten the Special Authorization Licence necessary to open up shop completely as a taxi service.

Owner/operators Shane and Shelley Quist applied for approval under “urgent public need” due to both Fort St. James’ and Vanderhoof’s dearth of taxi services.

The only road block left for the business is safety inspections for their vehicles, which they hope to have done soon to make a tentative start of March 1 for their business.

They hope to supply two taxis to the Fort and two to Vanderhoof.

They plan to offer rides as far as Prince George and Burns Lake from both Vanderhoof and the Fort.

The pair already have three drivers ready to work, and have two more working on their class 4 licences.

Both communities will have to call the Fort number of 250-996-1822 for service at this point, but theyhope to get a local Vanderhoof number as well.
