Notes: and #TAXI are pleased to offer up 3 cash awards worth $1,000 each! We’re celebrating the new school year and a brand new look to the website. We’re also pleased to introduce #TAXI to our members – if you and your friend are out on the town having drinks, don’t drive – make your “last call” #TAXI (#-8-2-9-4) on your cell phone and you’ll get connected to the first available cab in any Canadian city. It’s faster and costs the same or less than dialing 411 – and you never get a busy signal. Plus, as an additional bonus, you could win $500 from #TAXI if you use your cell phone to call #TAXI (#-8-2-9-4) anytime between September 15 and October 30, 2004!
