How do you call a cab?

First off I am very ashamed posting this question, so I apolgize if I sound like a dumbass. I have taken tons of cabs before when on vacation, but Its been at tourist locations with tons of cabs around. Anywas living here in vancouver I have been spoiled with a car and if I dont have that I can get around to where I want with transit thus never taken a cab...

Anyways to get to the point. I need to get to a remote area in Richmond that transit doesnt go on (#8 road), I will be taking transit to richmond centre and from there planning on taking a cab). So how about do I do this? Do I have to call a cab company to pick me up? find a cab around the mall?....

Eh just make sure they purposely take longer routes just to get more cash out of you.

Hmm I wish Vancouver is like Hong Kong or Taiwan, where you just wave your hand out on the street and some Taxi driver will be in front of you at no time!

richmond centre might have a designated phone that will call the cab company. Just ask Customer Service.

During the peak hours, there is usually a cab parked at Richmond Centre near the B-line stop as well.

Yeah, no shit. I've been refused service a few times (though not in Vancouver) because I was going a short distance. Usually it was for specific circumstances (one was in a city I was not familiar with, and the other was during a downpour where I didn't have an umbrella to get home and trip was about 2 miles) For the ones that do take me, I usually tip them very well (usually I double the fare to make it worth their while)

There's a bus that goes to 8 Road but if you want to go south of Westminster Hwy on 8 Road you have to walk the rest of the way

yup #TAXI connects you to the nearest available cab in any Canadian city. I think it costs $1.25? but there might be a monthly fee. alternately call 411

Nope, it's GOOGLE/466453. I just tried it when I read this thread and saw no one suggested it.

It's my free alternative to 411 since I don't have a data phone.
