About Venture Cabs

Venture Cabs is owned and operated by Ventures Plus, LLC located at 301 Opportunity Drive in Corbin, Kentucky. We are a family owned and operated company serving Corbin, London, Barbourville, Williamsburg and Somerset as well as all the small towns and communities in the counties of Laurel, Whitley, Knox and Pulaski.

Originally founded to provide transportation services for CSX Railroad, Ventures Plus, LLC recognized a need in the local area that was seriously underserved. Owners, Gary Helton and Jim Lacefield were willing to put forth the effort and the significant capital required to become Kentucky State Licensed Taxicab service providers.

Venture Cabs is dedicated to providing timely, safe and affordable taxi transportation to the public. All of our Taxis use Meters to provide accurate billing and fares.

Frequently Asked Questions

Venture Cabs receives many calls per day and most of those calls are from people that are curious about our service.

Q. What are your rates?
A. We have published our rates on this site, and you can find them by clicking here.

Q. When do you operate/run your taxis?
A. 24 Hours Per Day, 7 Days Per Week, and 365 Days Per Year. We are always available, and have a dispatcher ready to take your call to 606-526-1211.

Q. How much will it cost me to go from A to B?
A. It's hard for us to estimate the cost of a run since all runs are measured by our meters. We will often over estimate the cost but there are some online tools that will help you estimate your trip.

Q. What do you mean, you're the only licensed taxi service in the Tri-County Area.
A. Venture Cabs is the only taxi company licensed to pick up fares/riders anywhere in Laurel, Knox and Whitley counties of Kentucky. There is one other taxi service in the Tri-County area that is licensed to pick up fares/riders in Wiliamsburg Kentucky Only. This company holds a City License, not a County License.

Q. How can I tell if I'm riding in a Licensed Taxi?
A. It's very simple. All you need to do is look at the license plate on the vehicle. If the license plate is white, with green letters, and has the word, "Taxi" on it, then it is licensed by the state of Kentucky to pick up Fares/Riders.

Q. What should I do if I suspect someone is operating an illegal taxi service?
A. The best course of action is to contact the Kentucky Department of Transportation Office of Legal Services, and report the incident. Call (502)-564-7650 and tell them.
