Sourdough Cabs, owned by Zach Boles, has stepped up to provide handicap, wheelchair accessible, cab service to the disabled and mobility challenged folks in Ketchikan. On Saturday, August 5th, Blueberry Festival day, my wife, who is in a wheelchair, and I called for and used the accessible cab service to enjoy the Festival.

Morgan, the driver arrived at our home in less than 10 minutes and delivered us to an accessible spot just uphill from the booths. After enjoying the booths and friends for over an hour 45 minutes, we called for a ride home. Within 15 minutes Morgan arrived, loaded Gwen and her wheelchair into the cab and departed for our home.

We would like everyone to know that physically challenged on call, caring and responsive taxi cab service is avaliable through Soudough Cabs.
