About Whittlesea Checker Taxi

In 194l, Vic Whittlesea purchased the Blue Cab Company in Las Vegas. He learned the business from the ground up and worked hard with his employees who all respected his ability.

Five years later, Whittlesea branched out to Reno with his transportation business. As the business developed he had an opportunity to expand into Sacramento, California, where he opened a transportation business and a taxi cab firm there. He retained the Sacramento business until 1950, building it up, and then sold it which enabled him to concentrate more on building the transportation business in Las Vegas and Reno.

Vic Whittlesea brought the first radio contacted taxis to the state of Nevada. He started out small, but eventually his fleet expanded to over 200 taxis serving the people of both Las Vegas and Reno. He was a member of the board of directors of the American Taxi Association for 10 years.

Today there are 7 companies affiliated with the Whittlesea-Bell brand. They are: Bell Trans, Whittlesea Blue Cab, Henderson Taxi & Presidential Limousine located in Las Vegas and Airport Mini-Bus, Bell Limo & Whittlesea Checker Taxi located in Reno. Between the companies there are currently over 1,030 vehicles in operation. So, keep us in mind for all your transportation needs.
