Buck Rogers Cab System
By JACK BARENSE
Students desperately calling
every cab stand in town to get
a taxi in a hurry are an insti-
tution of the past in Ann Arbor.
It's no super-speed fleet of
taxis that is responsible for the
new order, but radio "controliza-
tion" of most of Ann Arbor's 62
cabs, according to Miss Edna
Rhead, radio dispatcher for a lo-
cal 27-car fleet.
MISS RHEAD receives tele-
phoned cab orders from Mrs. Val-
enda Hebard, then relays them by
short wave to the taxis. They esti-
mate that the use of the radios
makes the fleet 40 per cent more
"My biggest troubles," said
Miss Rhead, "is remembering
where all of the cabs are. This
must be known if radio dis-
patching is to function effi-
She estimated that over 1,000
persons are carried in an average
day by the cabs directed from her
small office. From 40 to 50 per
cent of these are believed to be
One difficulty connected with
the use of radios is that all the
cab companies in the country op-
erate on two frequencies.
THEY NOW have a signal sys-
tem between the other companies'
so that each knows when the
other is on the air and they don't
interfere with each other.
"The weather was too nice this
winter," said the dispatcher, "but
I guess only people in the cab
business would think so."
