Complaint: Subject: Visit to San Antonio August 8-9: Taxi Experience with AAA Taxi To whom may concern, I arrived at San Antonio International Airport August 8 7:35am with daughter's 7 & 8 years old and caught a taxi via AAA Taxi to my hotel. I gave the driver the name of my hotel "********* *** * ****** near Sea World he said he know where this was. The driver (taxi 7)begin to drive and stopped at the airport (nerve at this point) and he asked for the address as the meter is running. I called the hotel and got the address...he said ok I know where it is. Again he asked me to call the hotel to get zip code, very frustrated at this point. He put the address in his GPS that was on his dash board and his phone not sure why he needed to use his phone asked him to turn meter off if he did not know where he was going. Very unfriendly driver. We finally got on the freeway to our hotel, we thought. He exits 151 and starts to slow down to a stop on the service road (again nerve with my daughters) he is looking at his phone instead of listening to the GPS which is telling him to proceed to ramp. We get back on the freeway again and exit to our hotel. By this time I gave him the hotel information several times and he still brings us to the "wrong" hotel. I'm not happy with him, I had to tell him this is the wrong hotel and he get mad at me, meter still running. As we finally get to the hotel, I told him how disappointed I was with this trip and all he would say "you have problem call number". Not that he was sorry or anything. I called the number and spoke to *** to file a complaint, he said he would send it to the company to request a refund and have someone call me back. I called *** at the end of the day to let him know no one called me. ******** (bookkeeper) from AAA finally called me and I explained to her what had happen. She asked what could they do to make it better. I told her refund the fare from today and have a driver return us to the airport tomorrow at their expense. She got back with me and said they could only refund half the fare and would have a "professional driver" pick us up tomorrow. They could not give me the refund tomorrow but would mail a check, not happy with that as I paid cash. I agreed to the refund/driver and told her I was not happy and would follow up on this matter. A driver (taxi 31) meet us at the hotel with a smoke infested vehicle not good for a child with asthma. He return us to the airport and we gave him a tip only as we agreed on the fare would be waived. He said no one told him so I called AAA to get this cleared up as my daughters are standing in the heat. I asked for ******** who of course is not available or *******. At this point I am sorry up set with ****** who is on the phone. Finally, ******** gets on the phone and said they will only refund half the fare from yesterday and since my problem was not with this driver I needed to pay the fare or she would call the cops. I told her this was not the agreement and all she would say is pay the fare or she would call the cops. I asked to speak to ******* and she said he was not in. I told her to have him call me and as of today he has not. What a why to end a trip to San Antonio!!! I paid the fare as we had a flight to catch and girls were hot. I would not have requested a driver from the same company to make them more money, I would have called a another company. I spoke to someone at the airport and they said anyone with a license/permit can get in the taxi line and pick up passengers. Hope this is not true. I would like AAA to send a refund on both fares. Thank you, ****** ******** ************ cc: *** ******* ******** ******

Desired Settlement: A response to my complaint with an apology from ******* ****** & a refund of $74.50

Consumer Response: Complaint: *******


I am rejecting this response because:

When ******** asked what they can do to resolve the problem I told her a full refund for the fare on Thursday and for the company to "pay" for a return trip to the airport on Friday. She said she would see what they could do and call me back. ******** returned my call and stated they could not do a Full refund but would refund half & have a car return us to the airport on Friday. She did not say I would be paying for the fare on Friday as I requested for them to.

As I stated before I would not have used them if they were going to charge for the Friday fare. I had no choose but to pay for the fare on Friday as I had two little girls sitting in the heat and had a flight to catch. ******* would never speak to me on phone while I was in San Antonio or return my calls (as of today he has not called). This is not resolved and I will continue to pursue this situation through the BBB and if necessary other avenues legally. 

Regards,

****** ********

BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable offer to resolve the complaint. However the consumer did not accept the offer.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I had arranged for ** **** to pick me up at the ****** Hotel in San Antonio, Texas at 6am on August 5, 2013 for a fee of 18 dollars. I was taking the taxi to the airport to fly back to California At approximately 5:50 am an AAA taxi company hybrid arrived at the ****** Hotel, and stated they were there to pick me up and take me to the airport. I asked them what happened to the ** **** Van. The black male driver approximately in his 40s stated that his company contracts with ** **** on certain pickups and that he was there to take me to the airport. We left for the airport around 6am and when we arrived the taxi driver advised that the fare was 26 plus dollars. I inquired about the fare increase, and the driver stated that it was a special van to pick me up and take me to the airport. I paid the fee in cash, and after checking in for my flight I called ** **** and inquired about the rate increase. ** **** advised me that I was not at the hotel when they arrived to pick me up and that they do not contract with AAA taxi for anything. It became quite apparent that the AAA taxi driver commited a fraud by stating he was contracted to ** **** to pick me up. It appears that the AAA taxi driver stole the fare from ** ****. On August 6th, I called AAA taxi company from my home in California and advised them of the circumstances. A supervisor named ****** advised me that their fares are set by state law and that they are much lower then 26 dollars. ****** advised me she would get back to me with her investigation. As of this date, I have not heard from ******. I am not sure if the AAA taxi driver even called in my airport trip thus costing his own company money, and me an extra 8 dollars. The driver for AAA taxi, in my opinion commited a fraud and falsely represented himself to get his fare. I would describe the driver as a husky Black male adult in his 40s of average height, who claimed to have played professional basketball in California, and also owned a parking lot in San Antonio.

Desired Settlement: I believe that AAA taxi company owes me at least 8 dollars to make up the difference in my fare. I believe that their driver broke state laws by overcharging me and fraudulently representing himself. The driver may have not even called in this pickup, thus depriving his own company of the legitimate fare. The 8 dollars is not really the issue here, the real issue is that the AAA taxi driver commited a theft by fraudulent means and broke state laws. Thank You ******** ** *****

Business Response: The fact is that our company nor any of our drivers are affiliated with ** ****. We do apologize for the misinformation provided by a driver. Without a car # or receipt it is more difficult to investigate which driver, if ours at all, is at fault. If AAA Taxi provided a metered trip to the airport it was completed as regulated by the city, not the state. If Mr. ***** paid approximately $26.00 then the fare is correct. It is calculated as follows: price per mile is $2.60, as set by The City of San Antonio (************ *******), plus $2.50 loading fee as set by The City of San Antonio with a waiting time fee of $24 per hour or $.40 per minute (utilized when a vehicle is not in motion but the meter is on). The trip as calculated by **** is 8.8 miles. Simple math will tell you (8.8x2.60)+2.50=$25.38. If Mr. ******* taxi stopped at any lights then that's where any additional fees came from. We feel we do not owe Mr. ***** a refund in any form. He should however investigate why his arrangement with ** **** was late, and where they obtained their rate from.

Consumer Response: Complaint: *******

I am rejecting this response because: This company needs to investigate why their driver lied and falsely represented himself as affiliated with ** ****, and not concern themselves with why ** **** was late, or the amount of the fare.  . If the driver called in the trip to the airport, then the AAA taxi company would know who the driver was. If the driver did  not call in the airport trip, then he unofficially took me to the airport and kept the fare, thus ripping off his own company.  I am sure it is not hard, for the company to find out who the driver was.  AAA taxi companies lack of understanding that the main problem is that their driver  picked up a fare under false pretenses surprises me. I don't care about the 8 dollars, as posted internet information about this incident would cost this company much more in future sales then a mere 8 dollars.

******** *****
