CEO Profile

Vince Animashaun BSc., M.Sc., (Eastern Illinois University) PhD Student (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign) is the President / CEO of Smart Taxi Corporation. He inspires and empowers people with entrepreneurial mindsets  to develop business ideas that target a specific niche; he also helps young entrepreneurs to develop strategies that foster organizational effectiveness.

History of Smart Taxi

During his graduate studies at EIU, Vince, like many other students, faced the constant challenges of  lack of transportation services in the city of Charleston, IL and surrounding areas. Consequently, he developed a business plan to start a taxi service that will help students get around the city; and to the Amtrak Train Station in Mattoon, IL.


Couple of months  after the inception of the Smart Taxi service, it became the preffered taxi service of EIU students and other residents of Charleston, Illinois.


Smart Taxi Corporation offers professional taxi service, non-emergency medical transportation, and airport shuttle service across the State of Illinois.


Mission / Vision Statements

Our mission is to provide affordable taxi service, non-emergency medical transportation, and airport shuttle service in Central Illinois.


Our vision is to create an efficient transportation network in the rural areas of Illinois State that will enable people to get everywhere, whenever they want.
