about Chocolate Cab and Mark the Cab Driver
Mark the Cab Driver developed Chocolate Cab in response to passenger demand. While driving, a week would rarely pass without at least one passenger asking if he or she could play the game featured on that televised cab game show.
Liking the idea of offering a rolling quiz game for his passengers and realizing that chocolate is a far superior reward than money for correct answers, Mark bought bags of chocolate and compiled question sets to challenge, enlighten and delight his passengers. On February 5, 2011, Mark instituted Chocolate Cab service.
Mark aspires to own and operate the transportation services company that would become and remain the most technologically advanced and most service-oriented in the world, the company that would host the Chocolate Cab info-choco-tainment service in select cabs. He intends to exploit and pioneer the use of the most effective, efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles and transportation industry technologies. Specifically, he intends to use electric and alternative-fuel vehicles and cutting edge systems for security; accounting; onboard billing; training; scheduling; fleet management; promotion; communication; dispatching; navigation; and onboard, user-driven information portals for drivers and passengers. By doing so, he would draw upon and contribute to the technology economy and culture of the Silicon Sandbar, the fast-emerging technology center of the southeast United States on the sunny and sandy peninsula of Florida.
Mark welcomes suggestions for material from which he could develop questions for Chocolate Cab Quiz.
Mark the Cab Driver*
Mark the Cab Driver offers safe, courteous and professional service in a reliable, clean and roomy cab, an Oldsmobile Silhouette minivan or a Honda Odyssey minivan.
Mark has been driving cabs since May 26, 2010. All of that experience has been in Gainesville, Florida. Mark has lived in Gainesville for about eight years cumulatively. Thus, he is quite familiar with the area.
Mark has an impeccable driving record, has no criminal record, never uses illicit substances, never uses licit substances illicitly and drinks an average of three alcoholic beverages per year--only many hours before he is on duty.
Mark is not a made-for-TV, stand-in, pseudo-cab driver like that host of the popular television cab game show. No, Mark is the real deal. He is an experienced, working cab driver who drives the mean streets of Gainesville, Florida and who deals with the full range of humanity throughout his night shifts. (Okay, the streets of Gainesville are not as mean as the streets of south-central Los Angeles or south Chicago, but Gainesville streets can become wild.)
* Typically, for safety reasons, cab drivers identify themselves by their driver numbers and/or by their first names only. Mark follows this cautionary practice.
