About ABC Cab Co

ABC Cab Co.

804 South Alston Avenue

Durham, N.C. 27701

The Associated Cab Company began in Nineteen Thirty Eight by several taxicab owners with a vision of providing better taxicab service to the City of Durham and surrounding areas. The owners were Russell Parham, James Hawkins, C.C. Malone, Jack Mitchell, Theodore Speight, and I.H. Williams. These men were owners of several taxicabs and wanted to form a company by associating together to operate as one big company in dispatching cabs. The company operated stands in several places around Durham North Carolina; on Kent Street, the corner of Fayetteville Street and Glenn Street, Pettigrew Street in front of the Associated Cab Company service station, and at the bus station. Many more independent cab owners joined the Associated Cab Company over the years until it numbered forty or more owners and seventy five cabs. The Associated Cab Company reorganized and became ABC Cab Company in the Nineteen Nineties. The company has been the premier taxicab company in Durham, North Carolina since the Nineteen Forties. ABC Cab Company continues to serve Durham with the most efficient, and courteous service to be found anywhere.

The offices and dispatch are located at 804 South Alston Ave.
