Danville has gone months without a taxi service, but today William Parker opened Danville-Boyle Taxi.
It will be welcome news to Carol Claborn. She moved back in April and three days later the transmission in her car broke. She said she once relied on Singleton Bell Cab Company, now out of business, to pay her bills and buy groceries.
She lived in Danville seven years ago when her son went to Kentucky School for the Deaf, but the 52-year-old woman said that she doesn't have any family in town and few friends.
"It's not just me. There are several people here in my (apartment) complex who don't have cars," Claborn said.
When Singleton Bell closed because of insurance problems, Claborn said she was left without any way to get around. The Bell family has said that they will reopen the company soon.
