We received a fair amount of feedback regarding offering a shared ride service to Windsor. South Shore Taxi will be offering a service on Tuesdays to start with intentions to expand to additional days as demand increases and we refine the process. We are really looking forward to this program and the added service to residents of the Town of Amherstburg.

Shared Ride Service From Amherstburg to Windsor
I’m in the process of reviewing adding a shared ride service from Amherstburg to Windsor. Any comments thoughts or suggestions are needed and welcome.
My initial thoughts is to have one vehicle leave Amherstburg from a central location (Tim’s Murray & Sandwich) dropping in Windsor at St. Clair College (Main), University of Windsor (Main) and the downtown bus terminal. The taxi would leave early morning 7:00AM to get students to Windsor for class and return leaving Windsor around 5:00PM. The service would initially be offered Monday thru Friday.
I plan on having a booking link within our website at amherstburgtaxi.ca. This booking portal will allow you to book your seat and pay for your ride in advance through Paypal
Pricing still needs to be worked out but I am looking at $20.00 round trip paid in advance. $12.50 One Way paid in advance. If space is available walk up price of $15.00 one way.
Please let me know if there is any interest with this concept.
Work In Progress Website South Shore Taxi Amherstburg
Check out the work in progress amherstburgtaxi.ca. I have been working on it the last few days. Its something new for me. I got into it through yola.ca promotion to get more Canadian small business to have a web presence.
One of the first challenges was trying to get a domain with South Shore Taxi . Unfortunately it was already taken with a few variations. I decided on amherstburgtaxi.ca as good alternative. I was figuring that people searching for a taxi in Amherstburg would do a search for taxis within the town of Amherstburg.
Initial results when doing a Google search for even the website where none exist. Apparently what somethings that enhance your websites presence are keywords and thorough description. I have seen noticeable improvements by adding additional pages on the website along with keywords such as just the most logical: taxis Amherstburg Location etc.
I’m still working and will continue to add content and build the brand. Thanks for taking a look at my blog and look forward to any comments good or bad to build a better brand and taxi service for the Town of Amherstburg.
Building a Brand for a Taxi Business
Earlier today I spent some time creating a signature within in my gmail account. I am hoping this will allow people to connect with us at South Shore Taxi. I included links to amherstburgtaxi.ca website, twitter account @amherstburgtaxi, South Shore Transportation Fan Page on Facebook. and of coarse my new blog.
So far incremental growth 5 likes on facebook including myself.
I’m debating launching a facebook ad campaign. It would allow me to get the branding image out to the people of Amherstburg on a reasonable budget. I’m in the process of bringing on a traditional taxi in the form of Crown Vic that will be painted in the blue colour scheme and lettered up with the new logo.
Next post I will talk about my website build experense and how I’m working with keywords and description tags to help people find us with search.
