What Our Customers Say:

The services he has provided have made my job easier

I am pleased to be writing this letter of recommendation for Mr. Robert J. von See, an authentic “Newport Character”.

As the manager of the Harbor Island Conference Center, I host many groups of people throughout the year consisting of Federal government, military and foreign nationals. As such, I have a continuing need for local maps and information publications that Mr. von See provides on a weekly basis.

He also provides a dependable taxi service that many of my guests make use of, considering that a majority of them fly here from all parts of the country. His van is great for driving guests around Newport and also for transporting them from and to either T.F. Greene or Logan airport comfortably. and, how often do you find a cab driver who wears a suit?

In summary, I am happy to recommend R.J. von See. The services he has provided have made my job easier, and his “rest of the story” tales about Newport have been an ongoing source of enjoyment for me.

He is always wearing a suitcoat and a smile

R.J. of A-1 Car, Cab, and Van is wonderful to have in the Newport/Middletown area. He always seems to be local no matter how busy the area is on a particular day. He has three different vehicles in his collection, including a 15 passenger van which is amazing when we have large groups who want to head downtown all together. He is always wearing a suitcoat and a smile, ready to assist with our guests’ transportation needs. When customers return to the hotel after being dropped off by R.J., some feel inclined to stop at the desk and mention how enjoyable R.J.’s “tour” was and how he got them to their destination quickly, safely and enjoyably.

The driver knew everything imaginable about Newport!

I agree with the level of professionalism and service of this Cab company. Being form New York you never know if you will leave the cab ride alive, never mind getting to your destination. LOL I called A1, and not only got to my destination safely and promptly, but the driver knew everything imaginable about Newport. It was a Cab Ride and a fun experience!! I would definitely recommend this company when in Newport.
