Yellow Cab of Prince William County is a family owned and operated business providing the citizens and visitors of Prince William County local and long distance transportation needs since 1978. In 1978, Ira (Corky) Cochran purchased Radio Cab Company (founded in the 1940s) and shortly after that purchased Quantico Yellow (founded in the 1940s).
The combination of these two taxi cab companies became Yellow Cab of Prince William County.
Corky and his daughter worked diligently through the years to build a company that offered safe and reliable transportation. The company is now owned and operated by Corky’s daughter, Tammy Beard, and registered as a Woman Owned Small Business in Virginia. Several members of the third generation are involved in the daily operations and at times some of the 4th generation may be found around the office.
In addition to our 36th year milestone, this year we are also celebrating our one year anniversary of offering handicapped accessible taxi service. Yellow Cab is the first and currently the only licensed Taxicab Company in Prince William County to offer this service. The addition of accessible vehicles to our fleet allows individuals to be transported in their wheelchair at metered taxi rates. All accessible vehicles are equipped with ramps and safety restraint systems. Vehicles are ADA compliant and will accommodate standard sized wheelchairs and power chairs with up to four comfortable seats for other passengers. Drivers of these vehicles have received training in the proper securing of mobility devices and have passed an extensive training course through the Independence Empowerment Center and other resources.
We were recently honored to receive an Outstanding Community Service Award from the City of Manassas, the Independence Empowerments Center’s Senator Charles J Colgan Advocacy Award, the Prince William Chamber of Commerce Innovative Practice/Partnership of the Year and first place in the motorized division of the Dumfries Christmas Parade.
Yellow Cab is proud to be a part of the business community in Prince William County. We take pride in offering safe, affordable transportation options to all citizens and visitors of Prince William County and look forward to many more years of service.
Independently Owned and Operated
All Yellow Cab companies are all independently owned and operated. To quote the company founder, Corkey Cochran,
"Yellow Cabs are like sidewalks. Every town has them, but none of them are connected."
All drivers are independent contractors licensed by Prince William County. All drivers and vehicles operate under the rules, laws, and regulations of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Prince William County Government. All vehicles are inspected no less than three times annually for your safety.

- To fully computerize our dispatch system
- To have wheelchair accessible taxi cabs; in fact the ONLY cab company!
- To offer a private booking application
- To use tablets for dispatch
- To offer pre-paid cab fare option
