I've lost an item in a taxi; how can I recover it?
Post on the bulletin board for lost and found items.
If you have lost an item in a Toronto taxi and can't remember the cab company, we recommend contacting each of the major taxi companies (you can do this via 416-TAXICAB).
It helps if you can recall the colour of the taxi, as it's easier to identify the taxi company; however, may Toronto taxi cabs are independent. Some common taxi colours are: Green/orange - Beck Taxi; Dark Blue – Royal Taxi; Silver – Crown Taxi; Light Blue – Maple Taxi or Kingsboro Taxi; Red – City Taxi; Yellow – Yellow Cab; Black/orange – Diamond Taxi.
