Local business owner Cindy Capelli is best known for her business New Mexico Wine Tours, but few are aware that Capelli also runs a local taxi service that provides a variety of affordable services to the community.
Capelli launched Los Alamos Taxi a year ago this December, as a way to get locals home safe after holiday parties and events. Her main objective was to help limit the number of DWIs and associated accidents in the county, but she also wanted to do her part toward the initiative to provide residents with a night life close to home. Although the county runs the transit buses during the day, there were no transportation services available after 7 p.m. or the weekends. She wanted to fill that void.
She started out slow, gradually adding services and additional vehicles to her fleet. She says the laboratory employees and visitors were the first to catch on. Rather than renting a car, lab visitors would employ her services to travel during their stay, including transportation to and from the airport in Albuquerque. She also began working in tandem with the commuter flight service that operates out of the local airport.
Capelli says that visiting summer students also really enjoyed the taxi service this year. It made it easy to get around an unfamiliar town and provided a safe way to enjoy the local night life.
