Cab/Taxi Service Providers:

All typical cab/taxi service transportation arrangements are set up by Transportation Services as dictated by current procedures and coordinated through appropriate school staff.

School staff can set up school funded cab/taxi services that do not fall within the scope of services coordinated by Transportation Services (for example; after hours,  special circumstances during the school day, etc...).

Although Parents/Guardians will not be able to add or change any service, they are encouraged to cancel rides whenever students will not be utilizing scheduled cab/taxi service to avoid being classified as a "no load" and incurring the associated fees.

To inquire about the status of a specific ride that should be in progress, parents/guardians or school staff can contact Transportation Services during normal working hours. Before or after normal working hours, the cab/taxi service provider can be contacted:

Green Cab - Phone: 608-255-1234

Madison Taxi - Phone: 608-255-8294

Union Cab - Phone: 608-242-2000
