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 is a Medicaid Approved Non Emergency Medical Transportation Service, and now offers non-emergency medical transportation (N.E.M.T) in Illinois.  The company also provides airport shuttle services in Illinois.
