About Ace Taxi


Ace Taxi, established in 1997, operates over 165 taxicabs on “call and demand” service throughout Cleveland and the surrounding communities.  One of Cleveland’s largest taxi companies, it is regulated by the City of Cleveland.  Service is available 24/7.


Ace Taxi Company was started in 1997 after a flight out of Hopkins International Airport was canceled and required travelers to stay overnight in Cleveland, Ohio. The next day, as the travelers attempted to make their way back to the airport from the North Ridgeville hotel they were staying, they found an astounding shortage of cabs able to handle the volume of calls.

And there – behind the front desk of his Travelers Inn Hotel – Bhupendra “Robert” Bavishi decided to start the business he had been planning for years.

“My heart went out to these stranded out-of-town guests,” says Bavishi. “The taxi companies operating in Cleveland either could not handle the calls or did not takes the calls seriously. Either way, I knew I could do a better job.”

Since that day, Ace Taxi has grown from 25 cabs to nearly 100 vans and 50 sedans today. And their fleet and services continue to grow!

“We understand that Clevelanders and the traveling public have a choice in the taxi company they choose,” says Devang “DeVo” Bavishi, operations manager for the company and Robert’s son. “Each call is important to us and we are committed to providing a reliable, safe, and clean ride to every customer – no matter the destination.”

Ace Taxi maintains exclusive transportation service with various hotels, businesses and schools such as the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), Cleveland Public Schools, and several Greater Cleveland nursing homes.
