Find the phone number for a local Yellow Cab company by searching for the business on a directory site such as Whitepages or Yellowbook as well as on a business review site such as Yelp. Many smartphone apps also allow users to look up cab numbers and locations.
To find a Yellow Cab number on Whitepages, users need to choose the Business tab from the main search options and enter the term "Yellow Cab" into the search field along with the desired city and state or ZIP code, as of April 2015. This displays all listings within the directory that match that term within the specified area. It is important to note that many of the search results may be for taxi companies with similar names, so users must exercise caution when placing a call to a number found on the site.
Finding a Yellow Cab number through Yelp works in a similar fashion, in that the user needs to enter a business name or industry and location into the site's search tool. Results are displayed in both a list and on a map, and each listing includes user reviews of the business. This is helpful for identifying common issues with that city's Yellow Cab company.
