Update: the two new vans added to our fleet are all ready to go but we are just waiting for them to be inspected by the city. Once they're inspected tomorrow or Wednesday, they will be serving our customers immediately. It's been a long and stressful road over the last month getting them ready but sacrificing to meet the needs of our customers is worth it.

This brings to mind one of the bright spots of new city rules that take effect on April 3rd. That bright spot is it will be easier and quicker for Nick's Cab to put new vehicles on the road to service our customers. We can't wait for less red tape!

Another bright spot will be that Nick's Cab will be lowering our non-contracted rates by a $1 or so per mile and we will not be charging any "surcharges" or extra charges for additional passengers. The safety and security and financial burden on our customers are subjects that weight on our minds and keep us motivated to provide a better service than yesterday.

Now with all of this said, we have made mistakes but we are working behind the scenes to change them and learn from our mistakes. Nicholas Hassinger, the owner, is taking more of a hands on role in driving customers and will be out in one of the cabs or shuttle vehicles on a daily basis meeting customers face to face. He will paying it forward by giving discounts, giving customers a voice, and showing them the support and love they deserve.

We look forward to serving the customers and citizens of Cedar Rapids and Iowa well into the future.

Sincerely,

The entire Nick's Cab family!

Volunteering and donating to others and causes bigger than myself are my biggest passions in life! So when Coach Kealy of the 3rd grade Prairie Hawks basketball team asked me if I would be open to sponsoring the team by buying the girls basketballs, I gladly stepped up to the challenge. Then I volunteered my time to help at practices on Tuesdays, games on Fridays, and tournaments on some weekends. Over the last four months or so, the girls, their coaches, and their parents have become like family to me and Nick's Cab.

I can't believe the youth basketball season is over already! It's been heart warming to seeing the progress the girls have made in the game of basketball. I'm looking forward to their fourth grade basketball season to start in the fall.

Slowly but surely getting two more vans ready to service the area! They should be approved by the City Clerks of Cedar Rapids within the next few weeks! Also, please be on the look out for the lower metered rates starting on April 3rd! They will be displayed on the side of the vans. I've been hearing from customers on the phone and in person and I think I've come up with some reasonable rates! Thank you everyone!

I want to take this time to say Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day everyone. Please take this time to reflect on how our lives have changed for the better since he had the courage to stand up for others. Please have a safe holiday everyone!

On another note, I want to say thank you to all of the independent drivers, clients, and customers of Nicks Cab for their patience and understanding during the ice storm that hit Cedar Rapids last night into today. I made the decision last night to pull my cabs off the road until 2 or 3 pm today. I wanted to protect the lives of everyone involved. Their lives are worth more than any amount of money. Please be safe while traveling today everyone!

Sincerely,

Nick -

The girls basketball team lost their first game but dominated their second game! If they play like they did in the second game tomorrow, they'll have a great chance to win the tournament championship. The other coaches and I are so proud of them.

I'm proud to have the ability and opportunity to sponsor and mentor them in the game of basketball and in life. I couldn't imagine using my time I have on this planet doing anything other than helping them and others. In the words of Tony Robbins, "the secret to living is giving!"

Welcome to the City of Cedar Rapids, Iowa

First of all, I want to say that Nick's Cab and myself are not perfect. With failures come opportunities to grow and learn and vast experiences that shape and push one to do what's best for the community and humanity. I, Nicholas Hassinger, work everyday to bring a smile to the faces of my customers and community, and even my competitors and their customers! I'm out on the front lines everyday in the community driving high school students to a school downtown, driving my elderly customers to and from their pharmacies and doctors appointments, delivering packages, and meeting and greeting everyone else I walk by and or give a ride to.

I'm also very active in the community. I volunteer at Big Brothers Big Sisters by mentoring a 12 year old boy, sponsor and mentor a 3rd grade girls basketball team, sponsor local mma gym DTF MMA, and DD for my friends who like party downtown.

With all of that said, I think of all of them when I say that potentially uncontrollable taxi prices in our community will hurt everyone. This will hurt the customers and citizens who live on an extremely fixed income most. They can't afford even a penny increase in the prices. I think we need to clean up our image and change the negative perceptions the community has of us before we consider attacking the wallets of our citizens and community.

I have had a few set backs in my pursuit to help change the taxi climate in Cedar Rapids. Being a beacon of light and hope for my customers and the citizens is my everyday thought. I didn't get into this industry to become a millionaire or billionaire and I don't live my life like that either. Like Tony Robbins says, "the secret to living is giving!"

If you don't want the new rules to be passed by the council...... please come to the next council meeting so you can express your opinions or you could email or call each council member. Cedar-rapids.org is a great place to find their information. I want your voices to be heard loud and clear.

Sincerely,

Nick

Received a gift for the Nick's Cab Christmas tree from Kylie, one of the girls on the team I help mentor and coach in the game of basketball. She enthusiastically told me the ornament looks just like her. Her thinking of me and my office and seeing the smiles on the faces of the others girls on the basketball team during their last scrimmage, melted my heart. I'm so proud to be able to dedicate my life and business to helping others!

Spent quality time with some of the girls on the 3rd grade Prairie Hawks basketball team and their families at the Iowa Women's Basketball game! Some future Hawkeyes in the makings..... oh and Haylee is a future UNI Panther! I'm really glad to have the opportunities to make a difference in their lives. They keep me on my toes and smiling too. I look forward to our next adventures together.

Received a photo to hang up in my office from the girls basketball team I help. I'm truly humble and appreciative to have these girls in my life. Seeing them smiling and having fun in practice, games, and in life really melts my heart! This will be hung in my office tomorrow. Again, Thank you girls :)

I want to take this time to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of Cedar Rapids' citizens, my cab drivers, office personnel, and their families! Nick's Cab truly appreciates all that you do to help us be successful in providing valuable services to the whole community. I look forward to what our partnership grows and nurtures in the future for our community. Thank you and be safe everyone!

A very special Happy Thanksgiving goes out to my little I'm matched with at Big Brother Big Sister and to his family. I'm truly proud and humbled to have been matched with you for the last six months. Our match has exceeded my expectations and I can't imagine ever not being your friend. Be safe this holiday season. See you Saturday buddy :)

Now another special Happy Thanksgiving goes out to all of girls on the Prairie Hawks 3rd grade basketball team, their families, and their coaches. Nick's Cab and I are so proud to sponsor you and help mentor you in the game of basketball. You're all doing great this season. See you next week at practice.

Finally, one last Happy Thanksgiving goes out to my teammates and coaches at Down To Fight Mixed Martial Arts in Cedar Rapids. I'm truly happy to be a sponsor and a student of mixed martial arts there. Be safe this holiday and don't hesitate to call Nick's Cab if you drink too much. We'll get you home safely! See you all next week.

Happy Holidays Everyone,

Nick

Received a big thank you from the girls basketball I bought new basketballs for. Nick's Cab hung the "thank you" poster and cards up in the office so we never forget what supporting causes bigger than yourself is all about :)

A few weeks ago Nick's Cab bought new basketballs for a 3rd grade girls basketball team out at Prairie Ridge Elementary School. Here's a few videos of the girls training with their new balls.

I refuse to sit by and allow the customers and citizens of CR to be screwed over. Basically, being told to sit down, shut up, and use who we tell you to use. That's how greed works and I will not tolerate that culture! I hear my customers' voices and I will fight tooth and nail to defend their needs and rights.

Thank You for your support and I've got your back!
