In 1972 Garth Swan acquired Yellow Cab and Diamond Grey to form United Cabs. His desire for business and being a local to the City of Saskatoon inspired him to continue his passion for transportation and hospitality.
To elevate the companies customer service and the growing demand of Saskatoon's population, a portion of taxis were transformed into Blueline Taxi in the 1990s as 'chauffeur service at taxi rates'. With this branch, The United Group was formed.
To go a step further on expanding hospitality, Prestige Car Service bought Quality Cab in 2005 and joined The United Group with the motto 'the difference between getting there and arriving!' This partnership combined Blueline Taxi into one luxury service. For more information on our black car and shuttle services visit https://prestigecar.ca/
