Pro Cab LLC is extending its service range to provide cab rides throughout the Palouse.

With its main office at 110 NW Stadium Way in Pullman, Pro Cab is widening its coverage area and hiring drivers from around Colfax to help local customers.

According to manager Mary Torrence, the taxi service will cover a range of about 40 miles at a standard price, along with rides to the Spokane Airport at a discounted rate.

Torrence said she expects Pro Cab will be most useful to customers in need of transportation to grocery stores and medical offices in the Colfax area, as well as rides to the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport.

While the standard fare for a cab ride is yet to be determined, Torrence said they are looking to charge either $2.50 per mile with extra fees based on the duration of the trip, or about $2.65 per mile with no additional charges. The latter option would benefit customers needing rides to the Spokane or Lewiston airports, as well as customers who need extra time to run errands during stops, Torrence said.

Pro Cab drivers will be independent from the company, and Torrence said they are still searching for workers based in the Colfax area. Torrence said she is optimistic in her search for drivers, as there are many people in the area looking for supplementary income.
