GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay’s largest taxi company is suspending 24-hour cab service. In an update Thursday evening, hours after announcing it was ending overnight service, Yellow Cab wrote, “Since others have become aware of the situation, we have had family members of current employees and drivers offer to help us with nighttime hours, and we will resume 24/7 shortly after we can get someone trained.”

Yellow Cab of Green Bay blamed the effects of COVID-19, difficulty finding and retaining workers, and the dangers of driving a cab at night. The company is also currently without a night-time dispatcher due to illness.

Its taxis are now running from 5:30 A.M. to 6 P.M. Night-time drivers were being transferred to daytime service.

Yellow Cab provides passenger and package service 7 days a week.

According to its website, Yellow Cab has been operating in Green Bay since the 1950s.
