The Taxi driver who showed in my driveway on 4-30 to provide my transportation to my Drs appt via OCO transportation...claimed she waited over 40 minutes for me in the driveway before leaving at 5 to 8:00am..This according to the transportation Supervisor. Not only did the cab arrive at least 40 minutes to early as she has before..BUT she only waited a max of 5 minutes ..still being over a half hour early in the scheduled pick up time..I don't know what she did in all that extra time BUT she was NOT in my driveway...of the rush of ti all thinking she would come back..I was ready to go at 7;30am for the 7:50 am pick up time.

I was thinking the taxi would pick up another transport and come back so I rushed to get ready..Her no return caused many issues...One at my Drs office for my no show..which is exactly why I belive she pulled this as part of the THRILL' its always something linked to drivers..

OCO transportation staff was cooperative and professional though it all. I have encountered games like this before with drivers...all part of the "THRILL" I am sure..

There is no way this driver waited for over a half hour for me in my driveway since I was in for a short time at 7:30am myself..I have been in transportation vehicles before an watched drivers do this to others also..and then get on the phone and claim they waited a long time and got no answer either off a no more than 3 minute pick up attempt..

I ahe first call received on my back up message phone came in at 8:30, the driver claimed to have left at 5 minutes to 8:00.....??

I also want to note.. there was an issue made one or two trips agi about a "4th" passenger..I had always complained when Taxis are too full..two the front and 3 adults in the back..of a midseize vehicle built for 3 in he back..the male taxi driver was somewhat upset he had 4th pick up scheduled and no room for the rider and there was no room..If the 4th rider had been large ..forget it completely. he bypassed the 4th and called to make other transportation for that person..Yes he was somewhat hassled by base over it.

I do not mind being ready early..If drivers need you ready more than 2 hours they need to say so..its saves everyone LOTS of hassle and expense..

One driver caused all this..
