Dear PoP – Taxi Lost and Found

“Dear PoP,

Did you know that the DC Taxi commission operates a centralized lost and found where drivers from all the different cab companies can drop stuff off so you don’t have to call each one if you lose something? I didn’t until I left my wallet in a cab Friday morning around Foggy Bottom. It took me a while to realize that the yellow cab I got out of wasn’t owned by the Yellow Cab Company in DC. Their cabs are black and orange. Go figure! Anyway, eventually I realized that it was a checker cab and I called their office. They connected me to the taxi commission right away and the lady there saw my name on the caller id and said she had my wallet. This was all in less than an hour!

The office is down in Anacostia, but it’s worth trip if you lose something you want back. Here’s their website with more info. The wallet was missing a finder’s fee, but everything else was there and there were no charges on my cards. Overall, a very good system people should know about.”

Great to know and glad you got your wallet back!
